Scottish league game to be played abroad?


The idea of Premiership games playing league games abroad was knocked on the head by the football authorities after an unfavourable reaction by fans.   It seemed as if globalisation in football did have some limits.

The idea has now been revived with a tentative plan for Celtic and Dundee to play a league game in the United States.  It wouldn't be as glamorous a fixture as one between top English Premiership sides, but it might appeal to expatriate Scots.  However, whether the football authorities would agree remains uncertain.
