Neil Lennon would welcome the creation of a British League Cup.
The Scottish Premier League will reportedly explore the creation of a cross-border tournament if plans for a major shake-up of the game in Scotland go ahead.
Hoops boss Lennon enjoyed UEFA Cup success against English teams when he was a Parkhead player, and said: "It is quite exciting. I quite like the prospect of that and if it comes off then it will be great for us and the supporters."
He added: "It could be one step in the right direction (of a move south) but there was a unanimous vote from Premier League chairman against us coming down the road.
"But it is innovative and if it comes off we welcome it.
"I think it would be great for the game and for the British game as well.
"It was a great spectacle at the Emirates in pre-season and I think that our supporters certainly will bring that to the game down there."
