Scottish Football Champions

The Scottish Football League was formed in 1890 by the Scottish Football Association and became professional in 1893 in response to happenings south of the border where many of Scotland’s top footballers left to join professional clubs playing in the recently established English football league. The inaugural campaign included 11 teams (Abercorn, Cambuslang, Celtic, Cowlairs, Dumbarton, Heart of Midlothian, Rangers, Renton, St Mirren, Third Lanark & Vale of Leven) with the league housing top flight football until 1998. Long dominated by two famous bitter rivals from Glasgow. Today the top division has 12 teams with the Scottish Premiership forming in 2013 after the Scottish Premier League (founded in 1998) folded after 15 years.
