Question by Dylan O’Cuana: Scottish Footy Fans: Would you agree that Celtic needs Rangers?
@ JaMie I think Celtic Fans should listen more because they could be in this situation in the future just look at Portsmouth.
Answer by JaMie
Celtic fans won’t but they also won’t admit that Rangers are the most successful Scottish club nor will they admit that the Pope is just a creep with a big hat
No, Celtic don’t do admitting
and we “don’t do walking away”.
This is just one of the differences that make Rangers simply the best
OK, i will explain. Now Tatty defends his team well. I would insist Rangers could cope if it were the other way around. But that’s not the case and Tatty knows it
Tatty’s point is that Celtic would only lose out about 2 million (id say closer to 4 but still) and can cope with that. Fair enough
But EVERY OTHER CLUB WOULD ALSO LOSE 2-4 MILLION POUNDS A YEAR. How would losing millions effect Hearts, Dundee United, St mirren and all the other teams. Probably a significant effect. It could even tip some of those teams into admin themselves. So there you go, 11 out of 12 clubs would be DIRECTLY effected.
If 11 clubs all fell significantly, then it’s only natural that the one sole club capable of operating without Rangers would be pulled down by such a big reduction in standard.
So yes, Tatty is partly right. Celtic could cope without Rangers, but THEY COULD NOT COPE with EVERY OTHER CLUB BEING SERIOUSLY EFFECTED. They would therefore be indirectly effected.
Celtic have handled their finances very well, they have no control over Rangers’ spending but unfortunately for them they ARE tied to Rangers’ success
Also, without Rangers you can halve Scotland’s coefficient which would effectively mean NO Champions League EVER for Celtic
