Celtic have bossed the Scottish top-flight in recent seasons and secured another league crown in the 2019/20 campaign albeit in vastly different circumstances.

The coronavirus pandemic put paid to the season in March and Celtic were awarded the title after a points-per-game average was used to calculate a final table.

Rangers look set to end Celtic’s recent dominance this season and are running away with the title.

But how many league trophies do they both have and how do they compare?

Rangers vs Celtic: Who has won more Scottish Premiership titles?

Celtic claimed their 51st title last season but they are still behind Rangers’ record of 54.

Rangers were the last team to claim glory in 2010/11.

Celtic have not finished a league season out of the top two since the 1994/95 campaign.

Celtic’s nine league titles in a row matched what they did between 1966 and 1974 and what Rangers achieved between 1989 and 1997.

No team has ever won ten league crowns on the bounce in Scotland.

As of March 1, Rangers are 15 points ahead of Celtic in the table and look destined for the title.

The next Old Firm derby will take place at Celtic Park on Sunday, March 21.
