Here are my predictions for the 2017/18 Ladbrokes Premiership!
Last Season Finish: 1st (C)
Celtic are head and shoulders above the rest of Scottish football at the moment and no one can deny that. Last season, they took their dominance to another level entirely, winning the treble while remaining undefeated in the league. Despite all of these positives, I still feel Celtic should be in the market for a striker - Moussa Dembele is out injured until September and the only other recognisable strikers at the club are Leigh Griffiths and 17-year-old Jack Aitchison. Tom Rogic and Scott Sinclair also being able to play out of position up top, but it wouldn't be ideal.
They also should try to sign a centre-back with Dedryck Boyata out injured leaving them only Jozo Simunovic, Erik Sviatchenko, Kristoffer Ajer & Nir Bitton filling in. That being said, the title is pretty much in the bag for Celtic. Their main concern will be progressing as far as possible in the Champions League - their group includes Bayern Munich, PSG and Anderlecht, though, so it'll be tough.
Last Season Finish: 2nd
Derek McIness' men have improved massively this summer bringing in Gary Mackay-Steven from Celtic with Ryan Christie also signing from Celtic on loan. Also the arrival of Stevie May is a real talking point - the striker has already proved he is a solid Goalscorer in the league. The team have seemed to gel well together in spite of the departure of Jonny Hayes, Nial McGinn & Ryan Jack who all played brilliantly last season.
Last Season Finish: 3rd
Pedro Caixinha will be the first to face the sack, you heard it hear first. Sorry Rangers fans but this isn't your year. Right at the start of the season Rangers suffered an early exit from Europe at the hands of Progres Neiderkorn (who came 4th in the Luxembourg top division last season). They've already lost to Hibs, by 3 goals to 2 at home, and recently drew to Hearts - it's been a very poor start. They have made some decent signings this transfer window, though; Daniel Candieas looks like a great player, Ryan Jack was a key player for Aberdeen last year and should be very effective this season, and Bruno Alves, who was part of the Euro 2016 winning Portugal squad, should prove to be a rock at the back.
Last Season Finish: 1st (Scottish Championship)
If it wasn't for their recent heavy loss to relegation favourites, Hamilton Academical, the Hibs would've been higher up on my list. Aside from that loss, Hibs have been off to a decent start already with wins over Rangers and Partick Thistle, and I think they really can challenge for a Europa League spot in their first year back in the big time! Hibs have a solid squad that was good enough last season to be in the top flight, with notable mentions going to the likes of John McGinn, Jason Cummings, Liam Henderson and Simon Murray (the ginger ninja goal-scoring machine)!
5. St Johnstone
Last Season Finish: 4th
St Johnstone will finish below where they came last season due to stiff competition in the league following the promotion of Hibs. After three games, St Johnstone are in a decent position in the league, so there's always the possibility of them doing a Leicester, but I doubt they will.
6. Partick Thistle
Last Season Finish: 6th
Partick Thistle finished in the top 6 last year under the guidance of Alan Archibald and I think the same will happen again this year. Archibald has done excellently since taking over the hot seat in 2013 and with Kris Doolan up top for the Jags, Thistle fans will have high hopes for this season. Partick have already taken on Celtic this year, in a game they could've won - Kris Doolan missed a few sitters and there was a big penalty claim too.
Last Season Finish: 5th
Hearts, Hearts, Glorious Hearts; where do I begin? With a disappointing last season, Ian Cathro has already made life difficult for himself this time round after Hearts were knocked out of the Betfred Cup in the group stages! To make matters even worse, Brendan Rodgers came out and said that Craig Levien (the club's director of sports) was the one responsible for Hearts' poor performances as he's the one who makes the decisions about transfers and Cathro couldn't be given responsibility.
Last Season Finish: 10th
I think Dundee will finish higher than their fellow relegation candidates, purely because they've got the better squad. In choosing a manger, I don't think they choose right. Dundee appointed Sky Sports Pundit and former Rangers player Neil McCann this year, but will he lead the Dee to glory? I'm not so sure.
Last Season Finish: 9th
How Motherwell have held on to star striker Louis Moult this year, I don't know - it's a miracle! The Well will once again finish in bottom half of the table, just missing out on the relegation play-offs in my opinion.
10. Ross County
Last Season Finish: 7th
It's really only going to get worse for county. They've already lost star man and former Celtic player Jackson Irvine to Burton Albion recently, and now this summer Liam Boyce, one of the best players in the league last season, has also signed for Burton. The County play Rangers this weekend and I do not have high hopes.
Last Season: 8th
It just looks like nothing will ever change in the small town of Kilmarnock. They're always there or thereabouts in the relegation battle and, although they have a promising manager in Lee McCulloch, I feel as though they won't finish any higher than eleventh.
Last Season: 11th
The Accies are once again relegation favourites. They may surprise a few this year following a few early good performances, but in my opinion the end result will be that they will finish twelfth.
Aside from Celtic, the Scottish Premiership is one of the hardest leagues to predict (so forgive me if my predicitons end up being completely wrong!). Send me your predictions for the SPL on Instagram, @transferfeed.
