IT'S a huge year for Scottish football and it's a shame the majority of fans won't be allowed to see the action.
Some supporters may be let into grounds but it's likely to be a minority and that's a real shame.
Ten-in-a-row is the Holy Grail for the champions and Celtic are on the verge of making history after winning their ninth with eight games left unplayed.
At that stage they led Rangers by 13 points having played a game more and didn't look like they could be caught.
Now Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard is tasked with stopping 10 and while they could make a good fist of it most would expect the green and white ribbons to again adorn the Premiership trophy.
Bookies agree with that assessment and the Hoops are no bigger than 1-2 at 888sport when the action resumes next weekend.
To win the SPFL
Celtic haven't done too much in the transfer market and have problems with the No.1 slot after the departures of Fraser Forster and Craig Gordon.
But they should get the job done as long as the likes of Odsonne Edouard, Olivier Ntcham, Ryan Christie and James Forrest stay and perform.
Rangers main man Alfredo Morelos needs to perform consistently and they'll expect much of Ianis Hagi and last season's big signing Ryan Kent.
Gerrard was thrilled by his side's trophy win in France and will be looking to get off to a flier when the Premiership action kicks off with their visit to Aberdeen.
No fans will make it less daunting for the visitors but even so Rangers look a tad short at 2-5 with McBookie to pick up the points.
The draw could be value at 15-4 while the Dons are 3-4 with McBookie just to score.
Celtic have it easier when they raise the flag at home to Hamilton who are again drop favourites.
Neil Lennon's men are just 1-9 to win but Celtic -2.5 gives a bit of value on the Asian Handicaps at 11-10.
