With the youngsters that the two sides possess in their ranks, this could be seen as a good thing for them in particular when it comes to bringing through new crops of talent. These sides may have also accepted the proposal due to the financial aspect of them joining the league next season.
It does come as a bit of a surprise to a lot of Celtic fans to see this go through, with some clubs revealing their frustrations with the whole idea.
But now, it looks like the youngsters at the club are set to playing regular football come next season.
