Hard to believe but true that the Scottish Football Season is already upon us .
We have been beavering away at SFT Towers to get ready for it. Checking transfers, preparing articles and moaning about the “summer” weather.
We have already produced a Scottish Championship preview ahead of the Petrofac Cup kicking off.
The Scottish Premiership, or the Scottish Premier League as everyone still calls it, will be the last released but will be here in plenty of time for the kick off on August 1st.
It’s another season to look forward to for all fans of Scottish football. Many had predicted that this year would see Rangers in the top division for the first time since their liquidation in 2012 but a resurgent Hearts and Determined Motherwell put pay to that.
Celtic head in to this season as champions of Scottish football and few would be brave enough to back against that again. Aberdeen are looking to regain a place at the top table of Scottish football and are currently embarking on another European adventure.
The Scottish Championship looks to be just as exciting this year with Hibernian out to contain Rangers’ promotion hopes and Saint Mirren unlikely to sit back and just let them at it.
In Scottish League 1 Dunfermline will be looking to make up for last year’s disappointment while Albion Rovers will attempt a meteoric rise up the divisions. Can they hold pace with the big boys?
In Scottish League 2 David Farrell points towards Clyde as the main contenders if Barry Ferguson can pull his managerial credentials together. Elsewhere the new pyramid system could have the likes of Elgin City panicking about their league status.
With four league trophies and three cup trophies to play for across Scottish football the season ahead promises to be as exciting as ever.
