|The Scottish League
|The Scottish League was
established in 1890. Queen's Park, an amateur club, was not allowed
initially to take part in the competition. Abercorn, Cambuslang, Celtic,
Cowlairs, Dumbarton, Glasgow Rangers, Heart of Midlothian, Renton, St
Mirren, Third Lanark and Vale of Leven competed for the title in the
1890-91 season. Dumbarton and Rangers both acquired the same number of
points and after a 2-2 draw in the play-off, they were declared
joint-winners of the competition.
The Queen's Park side in 1874.
Since 1890 Glasgow Rangers and Celtic have dominated the competition.
Rangers has won the league title on 51 occasions whereas Celtic have
been champions 40 times. The same is true of the Scottish Cup with
Celtic winning 33 times compared to Rangers 31.
