The Scottish Premiership is the top league of Scottish football, consisting of 12 teams. The team to earn the highest points over the 38 match season is the champion, whilst the bottom side are relegated and the second bottom play in a play-off against a team from the Scottish Championship.
The league is is unique in the fact that it is split into two phases – phase 1 in which all teams play 33 matches – 3 games against every other team before the league is split into a top 6 and bottom 6. The second phase involves teams playing a further 5 matches against the 5 other clubs from its section, with clubs being unable to move out of their section despite if they finish on a higher number of points.
The 2020 – 2021 champions were Rangers, winning their first title since the 2010-2011 season after finishing 25 points ahead of rivals Celtic who were seeking a record-breaking tenth successive title. Hamilton Academical were relegated after finishing bottom of the table, whilst Kilmarnock joined them after losing the play-off 4-2 to Dundee.
