Scottish Champions

The Scottish League Championship trophy Awarded to the best team in Scotland until 1998 and the winner of the second tier (currently the Championship) since This weekend, Northern Ireland captain, Steven Davis had his fourth Scottish title win confirmed, as Rangers ended their decade-long championship drought, and Celtic's hopes of an historic 10-in-a-row. The following players have been crowned Scottish champions, whether by the Scottish Football League (1890-1998) , Scottish Premier League (1999-2013) , or the current governing body, the Scottish Professional Football League (since 2014) . It is telling that no (Northern) Ireland player has ever won a Scottish title medal with a club other than the Old Firm giants - Rangers and Celtic. (players are assumed to have claimed a medal only if they have made 10 or more appearances, or other mitigating factors leading to a medal award are known) 7 Bertie Manderson (Rangers) 1917/18, 1919/20, 1920/21, 1922/23, 1923/24, 1924/25, 1926/27 6
