It doesnt seem to have done leagues such as Spain, Portugal and Germany any harm.
Would need to be an option for any teams that wanted to do it rather than just Celtic and Rangers though.
It's been the case in Germany for decades. HOWEVER the regional leagues in Germany are big enough to allow smaller traditional teams to survive. It would only work in Scotland if they expanded the amount of teams in the league.
Personally, providing there's no promotion for B teams allowed and the leagues are expanded, then I think smaller teams could benefit from it.
We can be sure that they are not looking to do this for the benefit of Scottish football as whole, or the Lowland League. They must see some advantage to their "A" team from the arrangement, and any advantage to them is by definition a disadvantage to their competition such as ourselves.
The money offered is what made this happen. asked my local lowland league team if this offer would be expanded to other teams, repose was no one else could afford it, so sounds like they haven't even approached others.
not sure on the rules but this could have been used by Hibs to get fringe players games.
