It has been 39 years since a club other than Celtic or Rangers won the Scottish top flight, and it’s unlikely that will change in the 2023/2024 season. There’s set to be another tussle between the Old Firm at the top but who will come out on top?

Who will win the Scottish Premiership?
Celtic have had to make a change in the dugout this summer, but it hasn’t made too much difference to the odds this season as they go into the campaign as odds-on favourites for a third consecutive Scottish Premiership title.
The Bhoys have lost Ange Postecoglou to Tottenham Hotspur this summer but have moved quickly to bring Brendan Rodgers back to Parkhead as his spell in charge of Leicester City came to an end last season.
Rangers will be hoping their own boss Michael Beale can produce more consistency having been given pre-season to work with his team and the former QPR boss has made some eye-catching additions including Brazilian forward Danilo and former England international Jack Butland.
As things stand, the bookmakers make Celtic comfortable favourites for the title, but there’s a long way to go in this campaign and the Gers won’t give up on the trophy without a serious fight this term.

Who are most likely to challenge the Old Firm?
After being given the job on a permanent basis following a seven game winning streak as caretaker boss last term, Barry Robson will hope his Aberdeen side can pull off a miracle and challenge the Old Firm over the course of this new Scottish Premiership season.
Former Dons fan’s favourite Graeme Shinnie returns to improve the midfield alongside youngster Leighton Clarkson who signed a permanent deal this summer after an eye-catching loan spell at Pittodrie last term.
Hearts will hope to build on their fourth placed finish last time out with the management duo of Frankie McAvoy and Steven Naismith take charge from the beginning of the campaign this time around.
The Jam Tarts have made some interesting signings of their own in the shape of Calem Nieuwenhof from Australian outfit Western Sydney Wanderers and former Peterborough United defender Frankie Kent.
Across Edinburgh at Easter Road, Hibernian will be hoping to overcome their arch rivals this time around at least secure a top four finish, even if a title tilt seems highly unlikely given the gap in quality between their squad and that of Celtic and Rangers.
Adam Le Fondre, Dylan Vente and Jordan Obita should give Hibs enough attacking impetus to replace the goals that will be lost by the sale of Kevin Nisbet to Millwall.
