This seems to be a story that repeatedly does the rounds but the calls for Scottish giants Celtic to be allowed entrance to this prestigious league has recently become ever so loud.
Fergus McCann, the man who saved the club back in the 1990s from the brink of administration, has thrown his hat into the ring with his belief that the club should be allowed to enter the league south of the border, as a result Gianni Infantino General Secretary of UEFA has given Celtic and their fans a glimpse of hope declaring that his organisation is ' open
to discussing everything '.
This has come after a three-year experiment was set up where the top teams from the women's league from Holland and Belgium respectively are competing in a newly-formed championship, as reported in the Daily Mail.
This appeal has gathered its support from a very well known and respected manager of the Premier League, this manager being Jose Mourinho who has been reported as saying in the
Sun that Celtic ' would bring something special to the league '.
The "Special One" went on to say: "They are a big club, with a big support and a famous history. When I have been in England I have asked my colleagues why Celtic are not playing in the Premier League".
He added: "Would I manage them? You never know what can happen in football" And that is
something for Celtic fans to certainly reflect on.
With the current Celtic manager Neil Lennon welcoming Mourinho's comments, and confessing that his dream scenario would be to manage Celtic in the Premier League.
And recently former Manchester United full back and esteemed Sky Sports football pundit Gary Neville has expressed his view that he believes that Celtic could finish as far up as 8th in the Premier League taking into consideration of the financial strength of the Premier League.
However for now only time will whether this dream will become a reality for a club who in
recent years have shown their worth against the heavyweights of the European stage with their fans now feeling that they, perhaps, have out grown the SPFL and want a slice of the hundreds of millions that would be available in the Premier League.
