1st usually gets 3rd qualifying round of the champions league or sometimes like this year the champions get straight into the group stages depending on the co-efficient.

2nd gets the 2nd qualifying round of the champions league.

3rd gets the uefa cup 1st round

4th or scottish cup gets the uefa cup qualifying round.

What's the maximum number of foreigners to play in a team ? You know... here the teams must get no more than 5 foreigners on the pitch. And the work-permits ? Same as EPL ?

After all that you really do have to ask yourself if it was all worth it... course it fucking was!

Not too sure about the work permits rule.Current internationalists automatically get a permit.Others I think have to prove they are worthy of playing and better than any local talent.As for the number of foreigners I think there is no limit.You could have a team of 11 foreigners and im sure the Huns and Tims have probably done so!

rangers and celtic have controlled scottish football since the late 1980s when aberdeen and dundee utd were dominating. as a hibs fan this pains me to say it but with the emergence of hearts over the last two seasons comes a real challenge to their dominance on scottish football.
rangers and celtic have a huge worldwide fanbase and have two of the biggest fan bases in britain.

sectarianism is an ugly thing and people can be killed over it. it resembles a dark cloud for scotland and something that must be stamped out.
you may have heard of the trouble rangers got into over the sectarian chants when facing villareal in the champs league last season and thankfully uefa are starting to take some action.
I already know about the thing you've said above. But aside from sectarianism 'apply' in Scottish football, what thoughts do they have when the Scottish sides facing the neighbours Premiership sides, shall 'the sectarian chants' be echoing the whole stadium (assuming UEFA has yet take some 'action' to have it cleared up back then) or to the countrary Scottish fans clearly to be good neighbours, behave well after walking out the stadiums when they meet fellow Britain mainland fans ? (PS. No offence, this doesn't mean I consider Scottish fans are jerks etc)

i hope this helps rex and if you want more information on scottish football just ask.
Any head-to-head match-ups' statistic to the Old firm derby thus far ?

@Riccardo,

So you're Celtic fan ? Who is the current player has the main role, indispensable + influenced one into Celtic footballing so far ?

how dare you!!! I support Hibernian.

Im really not sure about what type of people support celtic or rangers - im not from glasgow and support neither so maybe the celtic fan can help.

mate went to a rangers v newcastle friendly and the rangers fans started up with the english national anthem and rule brittania - the newcastle fans were bamboozled as to why scots would sing the english national anthem - its all religious here whereas england its just rivalry.

i dont know whos won more once again the celtic fan may be able to help more.

Yes there is that silly rule.We have had two sub goalies on the bench at times to ensure our quota of U-21's.

As for Ceptic and Rankers?who cares?Certainly the Celtic fans were heard chanting IRA songs on Sunday at Hearts.Personally id just shut the grounds if they sing bigoted songs-Permanently!

I didn't have any knowledge about Scottish Premier League. In fact, i only know Ranger and Celetic, these 2 teams often enter CL represent Scottish.
But i visited some website and read some data, Ranger had won Scottish Premier League continevious 11 years !!! Unbelieable !!! Even the best Milan can only dominate Serie A 3 years !!! I can't believe any team could dominate the league 11 years !!

I dont think that Rankers have won 11 consecutive titles.They have won 9 as have Ceptic which is still no mean feat!

Jambos 0-0 Bairns
Killie 0-0 Arabs
Well0-2 Dons

Well Rossonerriscot I hope youre game was better than mine today.It was one of the poorest games i've seen for some time.Arabs had Lwee Miller red carded after 35 mins and we struggled to break them down.No quality on display at all from either team.Hopefully ill find the Milan game online tonight and that will be better!

well it was a long day and a pish game. never looked like we were going to score - i tell you if riordan and o'connor were still at hibs we would have 9 points. the new moroccan looks no bad though - a few nice tricks and good on the ball. there was nothing in the final 3rd. thats 9 months without an away win and next away day is a trip to celtic park!

hopefully things will pick up next week against motherwell at ER.

atleast hearts never won!

Yes, it is Nakamura. He is good in deliver free kicks, corners.

Why the glasgow derby were called "The Old Firm" ? And how good is Neil Lennon? Seems that most of the fans is fancy him.

I saw videos about Celtic fans, and they're brilliant and fantastic when supporting their team. That's why Gattuso didn't play in Celtic - Milan game, to avoid getting pissed off by the celtic fans.
