WALES'S three Nationwide League clubs, Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham, could find themselves taking on sides from Scotland as well as England in future under proposals being put forward by Gordon Taylor.
The players' union chief today urged the crisis-hit Football League to start talks over the most sensational overhaul in the history of British football - combining with the Scottish Premier League.
Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Taylor believes the incredible scheme - bringing Old Firm giants Celtic and Rangers and the other 10 SPL teams into a reformed Football League - would generate massive interest.
The Football League are in crisis after the ITV Digital disaster left a £131.9m shortfall in television revenue and sparked Tuesday's resignations of chief executive David Burns and chairman Keith Harris.
Clubs have reacted by tearing the league further apart - with Division One sides believed to be pushing for more power and Division Three chairmen reported to be 75pc in favour of a new regionalised structure.
But Taylor's radical change goes far beyond anything dreamed up by club chairmen pondering how to bump up their dwindling income.
He said, "The PFA wants to be involved in any league restructuring and we shouldn't discount the possibility of combining with Scotland.
"We already have clubs from Wales in our league, so I think serious talks should take place with Scotland, bearing in mind their concern for their future.
"Rather than just paper over the cracks of the league, let's be positive and make sure football is in as many towns and cities as possible in England and Scotland.
"If the current problems in Scotland continue, one option for the league is to think about a combination with Scotland to add extra spice and variety to the league."
Taylor's plan would have to be approved by leagues north and south of the border, the Football Association and European governing body Uefa.
