Probably not. I hope they do though, I'd like to see an end of Old Firm dominance. The Celtic game on Wednesday will be crucial, as if they win they'll be 4 points adrift of Celtic with a game in hand on them. Jim Jefferies has them playing well, and they have a very good depth to their squad which no other team bar the Old Firm have. Hopefully they'll prove me wrong and take 2nd place if they manage to keep up this run of form.

They can, but they won't.

Old Firm is too strong for the Scottish league imo.

Hope so, but want Celtic to win it. 3rd place in Scotland, is normally a hard one to tell.

Didn't Belgiuim over-take them in the rankings so they get their 2 champions league places, with Scotland having 1?

Belgium did overtake us, but we retain the 2 Champions' League places. It just means that Scottish team have more qualifying matches to negotiate. This is from Wikipedia though, not 100% sure it's correct.

EDIT - Forget everything I've just said, apologies. Scotland will only get 1 place starting in the 2011/12 season.

Hope they do, Rangers 1st, Hearts 2nd.

They won't though, Rangers and Celtic are too good.

If ever a team will, Hearts look like they could, obviously that hurts me to say but they are looking strong, i think they will get beat of Celtic and Hibs will, ofcourse, get hammered of Rangers.
