    "Hypothetically, such a proposal would see Rangers, Celtic, Hibs and Aberdeen compete from next season"

    No mention of the biggest ever team in the world of big teams ever? Shocking. Budge statement incoming, surely?

    Thanks for telling us about what Rangers want and think should happen in another country to benefit them. As ever it won't be happening. They really need to show some dignity and stop scrounging for scraps from England's table every few months.

    Bennett has told the EFL it's in their best interests to explore the proposition because Rangers would easily sell out their away ticket allocation for any tie.

    I'm sure every English city would welcome the Hun marauders with open arms!

    To be fair it would give the big team a chance to finally win the Betfred cup since Jesus was in nappies. As long as they managed to avoid Alloa

    No thanks, it would dilute our chances of winning silverware.

    I've zero interest in Hibs competing in English competitions.

    As another poster has said I'm not sure local English councils would want thousands of neanderthal huns fighting with each other and destroying their city centres anyway.

    Its beyond cringeworthy. It'll be the football league trophy they'll be flashing their knickers at next. Embarrassing.

    How is this a selling point? It's not like English fixtures have an attendance issue in any competition.

    I quite like the idea. It would add a bit of glamour and variety to our game, which I feel can get a bit dull with the same old opponents. I also think the standard of our game has slipped of late (probably not helped by the soulless crowd-free games for the last 18 months) so it would be interesting to see how our clubs stack up against the English ones.

    League Cup is played in a lot of empty grounds until the QF.

    I remember going to Bolton v Spurs few years back and was about 4000 there. Strong teams too and think it finished 4-3.

    Still don't think it's a good idea.

    Sounds good, all for it. My only complaint is that it should be more - been in favour of a full-scale "British Cup" for years.

    Ehm, why? We have our own league cup competition. Am I **** doing a 600 mile round trip for a game against some League 1 nonsense.
    A great day out ruined by the football

    Hearts reached the final of that tournament in 1971 where they lost 3-2 on aggregate to Wolves despite winning the away second leg 0-1.
    I have the programme for the home leg they lost 1-3.

    Motherwell knocked Spurs out in the quarter finals that season over 2 legs!
    Lost the 1st leg 3-2 at White Hart Lane before beating them 3-1 in the return at Fir Park.

    Agree with some others.
    Scottish football has its own identity and we should work at improving that internally rather than get swallowed up by the game down South.
    European competition gives the top 5 teams in Scotland the prospect of exciting competition at new grounds and creating extra income, we 'just' need to improve our results and the money will come too.
    Tbf Rangers have improved considerably in that respect

    God help any English club (town/City) selling out an away end of Huns!

    For that very reason, it'll never happen. The Huns have ruined any chance we might have had.

    I absolutely love Scottish football. The passion is unrivalled and i don't believe the standard is anywhere near as bad as some folk make out. English football holds no appeal for me whatsoever and i hope Hibs go nowhere near it other than the occasional pre season trip.

    It would be a semi interesting novelty for the first couple of years but would get boring very quickly. We'd have 0 chance of getting to the later rounds. Not keen personally.

    Same.

    I'd go for something like every other year, and either replacing the league cup for that year or as an additional tournament.

    I think it would be really interesting to have and open us up to a few exciting trips away. As already mentioned it would be good to see us stack up against English clubs too and see how we fair.
    Mon the Hibs.

    I think it would stay interesting. Man City are unusual for a big English club in taking the league cup seriously - many donít, so there would be potential for upsets.

    Some disgraceful behaviour by Rangers fans would probably see the whole idea binned after one season anyhow.

    Saying "we would sell out our away allocation no problem" might be a selling point for a competition that doesn't register in England until the semi final stage, but not when that allocation is going to the Orcs .... the fitba equivalent of asking a club if you can store 50 tons of manure in their centre circle.

    It's always attractive to have the prospect of away days to places you haven't been to before, but at the end of the day it's a competition no Scottish club has a hope of winning, in the last 10 seasons only Swansea have won it outside of the top 5 teams in England, there will be no Wembley trip for the likes of us. Europe is worth being in coz it's exotic, there's nothing exotic about most of our possible destinations darn saff.

    If Hibs are ever to play in a British set up it would only be acceptable as part of a league system where our potential as a club and the city we play in would ( and I'm in no doubt it would ) be attractive to investors who could pump in the sort of money enabling us to attract the players to make us truly competitive.

    As an advert for the union followers of 'the Rangurz' are a selling point in the same way as the Waffen SS were a good advert for leather coats

    I seem to remember Hearts getting an awful doing from Burnley or someone. 0-5 maybe.
