Celtic have expressed an interest in starting a franchise club in the United States, according to reports.

The Scottish champions, who regularly travel across the Atlantic to play pre-season friendlies, are also said to be looking into similar opportunities in Asia as they attempt to grow their global brand.

According to BBC Sport, initial talks have already taken place between representatives of the club and the North American Soccer League, which is the second tier league in the US.
