Scotsman report

It is nothing remarkable to us today to be reading about the championship race being over in January. What is surprising is that the supposed title decider in 1995 would be Rangers’ New Year meeting with Motherwell. The following season the Bosman ruling and freedom of contract would rip the guts out of the team that Tommy McLean built and Alex McLeish led to runners-up spot.

It would be over a decade before the Old Firm would again be separated from the top two positions. Even now the achievement of Vladimir Romanov’s Hearts staggering almost in spite of themselves to second place in 2006 looks like a momentary aberration. Realistically from 1995 onwards there is nothing left for the rest to play for but third place.
