Celtic manager Neil Lennon has admitted that he would be interested in the possibility of the club fielding a second team in the Scottish Football League.

However, Lennon does not believe that the idea is likely to gain support from other member clubs.

"I think it would be good for the game," he said. "But from what I gather there is not too much support for that. I think it was mooted maybe a year or two ago but nothing was taken on with it.

"For us, it is a good idea. Ourselves and Rangers are probably the only clubs who could afford to do that.

"Whether it would bring crowds in, give our players experience, I don't know."

SPL clubs will vote on a separate reconstruction package on April 15 with a view to it being implemented by the start of next season.
