Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers enjoy a huge following
The proposal to create a two-tier English Premier League will be raised again at a league meeting in November.
Bolton chairman Phil Gartside is the driving force behind the idea that could pave the way for Celtic and Rangers to play in England.
Gartside's plan to include the Old Firm in two divisions of 18 teams was mooted earlier this year but not formally discussed by the Premier League.
European governing body Uefa has said it would not oppose such a move.
Uefa has consistently indicated that teams will not be allowed to play in leagues outside their own country but director of communications William Gaillard told BBC Scotland in April the matter would be something to be decided between the leagues and associations involved.
Those bodies would be the Premier League, the Football Association, the Football League, the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football Association.
