    Europa League would mean more and have more standing than 9 league titles in a row.

    It would also result in automatic CL qualification for the next season.

    It’s a hypothetical pipe dream anyway.

    * me we’d need 30 yard daisy cutters bouncing off 4 defenders and rolling in just to get to the knockouts never mind a final

    Another question about Celtic and all some people are concerning themselves about is the mutants :blahblah1

    We've lost leagues before and we'll lose leagues again. Life goes on.

    I still view the Europa League as the UEFA Cup, it is the same trophy after all, and if we were to be hoisting that high in Gdańsk in May 2020 with green and white ticker tape and fireworks I'm kinda at the stage now where that would more than soften the blow of missing out on a 9th title in a row. We are light years away from even thinking about winning the big cup so this would be massive.

    Thankfully this question is 100% hypothetical though, so calm yer jets before having a go at me :56:

    People picking the league are mental. You'd take a trophy we've won 8 times straight over a trophy that's far more prestigious that we've never won???

    ...and it would mean no qualification for the CL that season cause we'd be straight in.

    Not that it'll happen like, but if I was to choose then hands down Europa League winners sounds better than SPFL champions.

    Any other year I would say the uefa cup however we are into our 9iar season so there ain't no hope in * * I'd give that up! Growing up as a kid looking bat all me 9IAR memrobellia I was always in awe over it thinking nota * chance we'll ever do it again. Not only do we have a chance to do it again now, we also have a chance to beat it and beat them * cheating 9IAR. Anyone who says they would give all that away for the uefa cup are off their * heads! I'd even take 10IAR over the European up(champion's and runners up league) That's how much it means to me!

    I always feel as though European trophies are a bit hollow if you don’t win your domestic league.

    I can’t imagine much in footballing terms that I would give up the 10 for though. It will be particularly true for those of us who grew up through rangers 9iar years imo.

    Anyone that would take a league title over a European trophy needs their heid checked.

    It’s not even a proper question. A Europa League lifts our clubs worldwide stature, a league title means you can gloat to fans of a dead club for a year. Whoopdedoo.

    Definitely! I remember them rangers 9IAR years with nothing but horror. Being there that day stopping there 10 was special and being there when we achieve our 10 will be something else. It'll erase all them bad memories growing up watching them win league after league along with the cups. It'll be what football is all.about watching us get that 10. I'm one that has always wanted the uefa cup sitting along side every other trophy we have because its the one is that's missing in our trophy room but * giving up the 9&10 for it. I can't get my head around how some would take that cup over the 9.

    It just shows how differently we as a fan base think. Comparing winning the europa league to a domestic league title?Is this a serious question?
    One gets you global recognition , raises the coefficient to levels where we would get automatic entry to the champions league , millions in prize money, direct entry into next seasons champions league worth another £30m+ and a greater caliber of player subsequently attracted and affordable to us.
    The other gets you a couple of hundred grand and bragging rights over a dead club who we’ve * all over for the best part of ten years now. Their coefficient is so * , they wouldn’t make the champions league anyway if they won the league as they wouldn’t be seeded in the qualifiers.
