Get lost Celtic!

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 05/08/2003

FA director of football affairs, David Davies, has responded to the Celtic demand to join the English premier league by saying; "The basic fact of the matter is, that football is a special case."

"We have a situation where 204 countries in the world compete against each other and if you go down this road then frankly international football is dead."

"Whenever this matter has come up at the Premier League, the clubs understand the initial attraction and then go into the reality of it. Domestic football is right at the heart of the game worldwide. If you have a strong league everything else stems from that."

"This comes up perennially in August, but it never actually takes off."

"The other side to this is to ask the Scottish Football Association, ask the other clubs in Scotland and what the effect of Rangers and Celtic leaving would have on them?"

"Are Rangers and Celtic suggesting they be catapulted into the top flight or are they going to work their way up from the bottom of the pyramid? If they are going to be catapulted, is that sporting, is that what sport is about?"

"But this is a generation and a time where we have a Scottish Parliament. Scots defend their independence in football terms very fiercely and they are absolutely right to do so."
