McGlynn: SPL thriving without Rangers

Published 2 Comments

Hearts manager John McGlynn insists the Clydesdale Bank Premier League is exciting without Rangers - and believes it could thrive without Celtic too.

With the SPL teams having all played each other, aside from Dundee United's fixtures against Celtic and Motherwell, only eight points separate leaders Celtic from 11th-placed St Mirren. It makes for an exciting first season since Rangers were consigned to liquidation and forced to start again at the foot of the Scottish Football League.

"If you look at the league table there are only six points between second top and second bottom," McGlynn said. "And who would have thought that going into November that Celtic would only be two points clear?"
