The Celtic chief executive has been discussing the landscape of European football.
The Bhoys chief executive was discussing any potential move to England for his side, something he says was a distinct possibility in the past.
He has also been discussing a greater volume of European games for clubs in smaller footballing nations, as well as the possibility of a British cross-border competition.
And Lawwell says something has to be done for Celtic, as it is 'absolutely clear' they cannot compete with the biggest sides on the continent playing in a country with only five million people.
The Hoops, however, are not alone in suffering from the problem, he believes...
“We’re not alone,” he said. “I think there’s a recognition at Uefa that the big countries are moving away – particularly England – and the rest are being left behind. They are looking for solutions.
“The most likely at the moment would probably be one of two options: a change in European access and structure – more clubs with more European games and less domestic ones.
“Secondly, maybe some form of British cross-border competition because it’s absolutely clear that we cannot operate anywhere near the highest level playing in a country of five million people."
Celtic's next on-field action comes against Dundee United this Sunday afternoon, when they play out their Scottish Cup quarter-final against United.
The following Sunday, the Bhoys will then face them again in the Scottish League Cup final. In the space of a week, Ronny Deila's treble dreams could be dashed - or have their foundations laid out.
