Former head coach Sir Alex Ferguson was among those to voice his opposition to the decision.

“Talk of a Super League is a move away from 70 years of European club football,” he told Reuters.

“Both as a player for a provincial team Dunfermline in the 60s and as a manager at Aberdeen winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup, for a small provincial club in Scotland it was like climbing Mount Everest.”
