There is a big gulf to leagues some here say are poor, like the Dutch league. In the association club coefficients, which calculates all results from the past five years for every participating team from each member association, Scotland is #26 below leagues like Azerbaijan (#23), Cyprus (#19) and Israel (#18) and just above Belarus and Kazakhstan. Netherlands for instance is #14. What if were to sign a player from the Azerbaijan league? Would there be some questions on the quality of the league? Never mind that, I've seen people call the French league (#5) weak.
