Scottish Premiership 2021/22 Odds: Rangers 1/2 for Title

 

Update: 05.10.21

 

As we head into the second international break of the season, Rangers remain firm favourites to win the Scottish Premiership title for the second season in succession.

Rangers took another step closer to a second successive Scottish Premiership title by beating Hibernian to the tune of 2-1 at Ibrox in their final outing prior to the international break. Steven Gerrard’s men now sit one point clear of second-placed Heart of Midlothian at the summit of the division after eight league outings and the bookies remain optimistic as to their chances of finishing at the top of the pile with some firms now going as low as 1/4 on the Light Blues.

As things stand, Celtic sit a country mile behind Steven Gerrard’s men with six points separating the two arch-rivals. Ange Postecoglou has thus far been unable to turn Celtic’s flagging fortunes around and while they did manage to collect all three points at the weekend thanks to a hard-fought victory at Aberdeen, the Hoops remain far behind Rangers in the ‘Outright Winner’ betting market at a general 3/1.

Postecoglou’s men currently sit in sixth position in the Scottish Premiership table, behind the likes of Dundee United, Motherwell, Hibernian and Hearts. The likelihood of them failing to haul themselves higher up the division is admittedly very slight, however unless Celtic spark into life in the coming weeks, the real danger is that Rangers will soon be out of sight and well on their way to making it two on the bounce.

Update: 29.09.21

 

Celtic are falling further behind in the race for the 2021/22 Scottish Premiership title and with just three wins from their opening seven games, Ange Postecoglou is already a man under immense pressure.

Any hopes that Ange Postecoglou would restore Celtic’s dominance in the Scottish game have thus far been dashed, the Hoops currently sitting in sixth position in the Scottish Premiership table after seven games. Celtic have been pretty abysmal so far with their latest outing ending in a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Dundee United and as things stand, they sit a full six points adrift of reigning champions Rangers in the league table.

Rangers rubbed salt on Celtic’s wounds by claiming all three points in what was nevertheless an unconvincing 1-0 win over bottom side Dundee at the weekend and while Steven Gerard’s men have the likes of Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian breathing down their necks, the bookies are of the firm opinion that the Light Blues will be the ones lifting aloft the Premiership trophy at the end of the campaign.

As things stand, Rangers are as low as 2/9 to win the Premiership title for a second consecutive season while arch-rivals Celtic are now out at 3/1. The Hoops are expected to bounce back from this slow start to the campaign and while they currently sit below the likes of Hibernian, Hearts, Motherwell and Dundee United, Postecoglou’s men are expected to be Rangers’ main title challengers towards the closing stages of the campaign.

Update: 21.09.21

Prior to the start of the season, hopes were high that Ange Postecoglou would lift Celtic back to the Scottish Premiership title, however these ambitions were dealt another blow at the weekend with the Hoops succumbing to a third league defeat.

Celtic may yet go on to lift the 2021/22 Scottish Premiership table but if they are to knock Rangers off their perch, they desperately need to lose the habit of losing. After just six Premiership outings, the Hoops have already suffered defeat three times and it hardly needs saying that this isn’t the sort of form which wins titles. Rangers also failed to win at the weekend but their 1-1 draw with Motherwell at least gave them a point for their troubles.

Steven Gerrard’s men sit in pole position in the Scottish Premiership table despite their dropped points at the weekend and the bookies have further slashed the odds on them making it two on the bounce, some firms going as low as 2/7 that the Premiership trophy ends up at Ibrox for the second season in succession. The Light Blues stormed to the title last season with not a single defeat along the way and while they lost to Dundee United earlier this month, the general consensus is that the Ibrox outfit will be the ones to beat.

Rangers now sit four points above their Old Firm rivals in the league table with just a single point separating them from Edinburgh duo Hibernian and Hearts. As we head towards the seventh round of league fixtures, Motherwell and Dundee United sit fourth and fifth in the division with Celtic currently sixth.

Update: 15.09.21

Rangers and Celtic both returned from the international break in winning style, the Light Blues edging past St Johnstone to the tune of 2-1 and Celtic thumping Ross County 3-0 in a thoroughly one-sided encounter. Nevertheless the bookies still go odds-on about Steven Gerrard’s men making it two-in-a-row at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

It may still be very early in the season but Rangers made clear their Premiership title aspirations when beating Celtic 1-0 in the first Old Firm derby of the campaign prior to the international break. It may not have been a clear-cut or convincing victory but it was enough to prompt the bookmakers into further slashing the odds on Steven Gerrard’s men finishing in pole position to as low as 2/5.

Rangers now sit in pole position the Scottish Premiership table with Edinburgh duo Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian sitting level on ten points apiece in second position after five rounds of league fixtures.

As for Celtic, they currently sit fifth in the league table with Ange Postecoglou’s men having suffered defeat in two of their opening five Premiership matches. The Hoops lost 2-1 away to Heart of Midlothian in their season opener before claiming maximum points in thoroughly convincing fashion against Dundee (6-0) and St Mirren (6-0).

Celtic are a general 7/4 shot to win the Scottish Premiership title at the end of the campaign, these odds lengthening from 6/4 on account of their defeat at Ibrox in their final outing before the international break.

Update: 26.08.21

Having slipped-up against Dundee United in their second Scottish Premiership outing, Rangers returned to winning ways when thumping Ross County to the tune of 4-2 in the Highlands and on the back of this result, the bookies have further shortened the odds on them winning the title for the second consecutive season to as low as 1/2. Steven Gerrard’s men clinched the title with plenty of room to spare at the end of last season, thus denying Celtic a tenth successive triumph, however it is clear that they aren’t going to have things all their own way in 2021/22.

As things stand, Rangers sit in fifth position in the Scottish Premiership after three games on account of their wins over Livingston and Ross County as well as their 1-0 defeat at Dundee United. There was also disappointment for the Light Blues when they dropped out of the Champions League after losing on aggregate in the two-headed third-qualifying round clash with Malmo.

Celtic – under the guidance of new boss Ange Postecoglou – will be looking to even things with their Old Firm rivals this season and while they slipped-up in their season-opener when losing 2-1 at newly-promoted Heart of Midlothian, they have since bounced back and recorded hugely convincing wins over Dundee (6-0) and St Mirren (6-0). Following these emphatic victories, the bookies have also shortened the odds on Celtic winning the title at the end of 2021/22 to a general 6/4.

The general consensus is that Rangers will once again be the ones to beat this term, however as things stand it looks as though their task won’t be anything like as easy as it was last term.

Rangers romped to the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership title with plenty of room to spare, Steven Gerrard’s men having managed to avoid defeat in the league for the entire season. Nevertheless while they got their defence of their title underway in excellent fashion thanks to a routine 3-0 win over Livingston, things didn’t quite go as planned in their next Premiership outing.

Having lost 2-1 to Malmo in their opening Champions League qualifier, Rangers saw their unbeaten Premiership run come to an end at the hands of a Dundee United outfit which many have tipped for relegation at the end of the campaign. Nevertheless with Celtic having lost to newly-promoted Heart of Midlothian in their Premiership opener, these results have had little impact on the odds in the ‘Scottish Premiership Winner’ betting market where Rangers remain huge odds-on favourites at a general 2/5.

Indeed the odds on Celtic have drifted slightly since the end of the 2020/21 campaign with most bookies now going a general 7/4 on Ange Postecoglou’s side.

As far as Rangers are concerned, most pundits believe that their defeat at Tannadice was a temporary blip influenced by their hectic European schedule. Gerrard’s side had returned from Malmo just three days earlier and having been beaten in Sweden, they were mindful that they would need to keep an eye on the return leg just three days after their trip to Tayside.

As such, the general consensus is that Rangers will be the ones to beat this season and they returned to winning ways when thrashing Scottish Championship side Dunfermline Athletic to the tune of 5-0 in the Scottish League Cup on Friday evening.

Celtic’s decade-long dominance of the Scottish game came to an end in 2020/21 when Rangers secured the title by a country mile. Steven Gerrard’s men were a class apart throughout the season with no Premiership defeats to their name and they clinched the title by a massive 25 points, the Light Blues winning 32 and drawing 6 of their 38 league outings. As such it should come as no surprise to anyone to learn that the bookies are going odds-on about Rangers making it two on the bounce in 2021/22.

Rangers are certainly going to be the ones to beat next season and some firms go as short as 4/7 that they finish at the top of the pile while Celtic – who have yet to appoint a new manager to replace Neil Lennon – are as long as 6/4 to retake the Premiership crown. The Hoops have struggled through a thoroughly disappointing campaign and while arch-rivals Rangers ran away with the domestic title and enjoyed a decent run in European competition, Celtic got nothing to show for their troubles.

2021/22 will doubtless be another two-horse race as far as the title is concerned, however as St Johnstone proved when winning both domestic cup competitions last season, there is always a chance for someone else to create a shock, however unlikely it may be.
