    Thank you Stuarty for the groundbreaking conclusion that Celtic & Rangers are the biggest clubs in Scotland and tend to dwarf the other clubs. We wouldn’t have figured it out without you.

    Isle of Scilly Football League has only two clubs in it.
    The Garrison Gunners and the Woolpack Wanderers.


    Alastair Johnston of Rangers said: "If we were to play Celtic every week it would be a bore and just exhibition football.

    "It's bad enough, to be honest, playing four times.

    "You want to keep an essence of speculation about who is better or worse and the buzz between both sets of supporters."
