Scotland I Division

Scottish Premier – First Division. A weird trend started with the British: the weaker the clubs, leading to reductions of top leagues, the more pompous the new name. Anyhow, two teams clearly had strength to play among the best and one team was still a bit weaker than most, so the relegation zone was clear early. And so was the top… Celtic had no rival.
Greenock Morton – last with last with 16 points. Newcomers – absolute outsiders. Won only 3 games out of 44. Permitted a round 100 goals in their net.
Dunfermline Athletic – 11th with 26 points. Like Greenock Morton, just came up and was immediately relegated.
Falkirk – 10th with 31 points. Not enough bite too and relegated.
St. Mirren – 9th with 35 points.
Motherwell – 8th with 36 points.
Dundee – 7th with 41 points.
Hibernian – 6th with 43 points.
Dundee United – 5th with 47 points.
Aberdeen – 4th with 59 points.
Glasgow Rangers – only 3rd with 60 points.
Heart of Midlothian – 2nd with 62 points.
Celtic really celebrated their 100th birthday – with title won after superior season: 31 wins, 10 ties, only 3 lost games, 79-23 and 72 points. Rangers outscored them by 6 goals, but nobody came close to their incredible defensive record: almost half-a-goal-per-game average! The squad led by Roy Aitken was not as famous as the the team of their arch-enemies Rangers and that made the victory sweeter. Billy McNeill did excellent job at the helm.
