A landmark legal challenge could open the door to Celtic and Rangers leaving the SPFL, according to a top sports lawyer. FC Swift Hesperange of Luxembourg are attempting to take UEFA to court over rules blocking them from taking part in a cross-border league with clubs from Belgium and the Netherlands.

Swift want to be allowed to join a proposed Benelux League and are prepared to fight European football's governing body and the Luxembourgh Football Federation.

The case could potentially herald a major shift in the continent's football landscape and once again raise the prospect of Scotland's two biggest clubs departing the Premiership for a multinational division with access to higher TV revenue.
