    Don't see anywhere else to put this. talking about the possibility of Celtic and the other * getting a pass into the champions League after a revamp, that agnelli the president of juventus has muted it and it's being reported in the press surprised it's not been talked about on here today.

    c/p fae the hun record.

    Celtic "and the other monkeys" could have a pathway to a revamped Champions League protected as part of proposal to overhaul the most lucrative competition in club football.

    Record Sport understands a radical plan, which has been spearheaded by Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli at a two-day summit of the most mighty clubs in Europe, could safeguard a future route into UEFA’s elite for Scotland’s big two.

    Our new information comes on the back of conflicting reports emanating from the European Club Association general assembly in Geneva that Agnelli will push for a closed-door Champions League set-up from season 2024/25 after being re-elected as head of the ECA this week.

    However, it is in our understanding that the Italian believes Celtic "and the other monkeys" should be given access to the top table because of the rich history of both club’s in European competition as well as a list of other key factors including their fan base, facilities and global reach.

    It’s believed Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell - a key member of the ECA board - has been lobbying hard to keep a door open for Scotland’s clubs but it remains unclear at this stage if any of the SPFL’s other top-flight teams would pass the criteria test which Agnelli is set to endorse.

    Lawwell has been lobbying hard.
    But the 43-year-old is also throwing his weight behind a proposal to create a new third tier competition which would be staged in conjunction with the Champions League and Europa League and lead to massive hike in the numbers of clubs competing in European football.

    Currently only 80 clubs across the Continent can qualify for the group stages of UEFA’s two major tournaments. But Agnelli hopes to increase that number to 126 clubs by introducing a new competition which could potentially see millions of extra revenue flood into the Scottish game.

    A source said: “There seems to be a misconception that Agnelli is trying to shut the door on Scottish participation in the new-look Champions League. That is simply not the case.

    “In fact, on the contrary, he has been very supportive of the arguments which have been put forward from clubs representing Europe’s so called smaller nations and he understands and accepts the principle of safeguarding access to the elite event for historic European clubs such as Celtic, "and the other monkeys", Ajax and Anderlecht.

    “He doesn’t support a closed shop Champions League and he does not want to challenge the domestic league structure. Instead, he wants to find a way of allowing more clubs from more countries to compete in Europe and access that revenue.

    “The creation of a new third tier competition would mean the likes of Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs and other Scottish clubs could compete far more regularly in Europe and that would provide the Scottish game in general with a massive financial shot in the arm.”

    UEFA are now set to enter an 18-month consultation period with the ECA as plans for a huge shake-up of the European landscape begin to take shape.

    Only after these negotiations are completed will the final consequences of this overhaul for Scotland’s clubs become clear.

    Agnelli does not support a closed shop and in a unifying address to the ECA on Tuesday Agnelli said: “The ECA’s task is to protect the position of football in all European countries and not only in those that have made themselves heard in the last two months.

    “It’s a privilege for me to lead a board of this calibre.

    “It has been an honor to be president of the ECA for these years, and I thank you for confirming me for the next four-year cycle, from 2019 to 2023.

    “Everyone is interested in future competitions, but I want to underline that there isn’t my side or another side, just the side of football which everyone should be on.

    “From this point of view, I’m sure that under the presidency of (UEFA’s Alexander) Ceferin we’ll pursue unity in football.

    “That’s what we’ll try to achieve, in the interest of all European clubs.”

    Our basic 3 match package for non ST holders is still 25% cheaper than their cheapest ST holder package!

    Group has opened up brilliantly..

    Most neutrals would've been expecting us to get beat and Lazio to win tonight..

    Think it's been quality for us..

    Aim to win our home game's and we're through. All these team's are beatable at Celtic Park..

    Beat Cluj and we're in a great position..

    Seen something in Daily Ranger saying the huns get a bigger share of the market pool than us due to having a lower co-efficient surely that can’t be right!
