Rangers and Celtic ‘B’ admitted into Lowland League

The Scottish Lowland Football League can confirm that the majority of member clubs have voted in favour of admitting Rangers and Celtic ‘B’ teams into the league next season – for one year only.

The decision was confirmed at our AGM tonight.

Earlier this month all member clubs took part in a discussion with representatives from both Celtic and Rangers before an indicative vote.

League chairperson, George Fraser, said: “The member clubs have voted in favour of this proposal that was put to them earlier this month.

“Whilst it wasn’t unanimous the majority of member clubs are in favour of it and ultimately the members made the decision, which is only right in a democracy.

“Our Board will now get to work on moving forward with plans to get the new season started on July 17.”
