Rangers’ Jon Flanagan: I’m right man to fill in for James Tavernier

6 reasons why this is actually a poor Ladbrokes Premiership season

Scottish football is in great nick, isn't it? Celtic and Rangers are slugging it out in the first proper title race we've had in nearly a decade, each of them have slapped down some of Europe's elite en route to the latter stages of the Europa League, thereby restoring some much-needed respectability to a league that lacked any from outside our borders, and there's more money with a better TV deal about to kick in and clubs in better financial health after the long hangover from the late-90s, early-00s hedonism.

Rangers 1 - 0 St Mirren: Defoe goal keeps pressure on Celtic at the top

Quality controls do not enter into title races. For that Rangers may be mightily grateful following a victory over St Mirren last night that was one heck of a grind.
