The draw is out for the new Scottish season which begins on August 3, and defending Champions Celtic play their first game at home against St. Johnstone, while Ross County returns to the Premiership with a home game against Hamilton. The best game of the opening round is probably Aberdeen at home to Hearts, while Rangers will start the season away at Kilmarnock. The other games are Hibs at home to St. Mirren and Livingstone at home Motherwell.

Unfortunately the Scottish Premiership will end in another Celtic title, so let’s forget about them and talk about a few of the more interesting things that are happening in Scottish football.

For starters, the good news is Ross County won promotion back to the Premiership after only one season in the Championship. WOOHOO!!

More good news is Inverness remain in the Championship.

Both Dundee teams find themselves in the Championship. I'm not sure if that has ever happened.

And way down in League Two a new Highland team makes its first appearance in the football league. Congratulations to Cove Rangers on their promotion.
Cove Rangers are located in Aberdeen, so who knows, if they can be as successful as some of other great Highland teams perhaps in twenty years we will see an Aberdeen derby.

Good luck to all the teams, but in particular the mighty Staggies, hopefully we can have a strong season and stay out of any relegation battle.
