There hasn’t actually been a ball kicked in the SPL yet, we’ve already decided to crown the champions. Want to guess who we’ve picked?
That’s right, we’ve decided to pay out early on Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic to win the title after Rangers were knocked out of the Europa League.
Sod it – we're paying out on Celtic winning next season's Scottish Premiership title. #YouBeauty

The nightmare 2-0 (2-1 agg) loss to Luxembourgian side Progrès Niederkorn, in the first round of the Europa League, also saw our traders slash the odds on new boss Pedro Caixinha departing before the season has even begun. He’s now 11/2 to be get an early dart.
In fact, they make it 6/4 that Caixinha will be gone by Christmas Day, and odds-on (8/11) for him to leave before the end of the season.

In an even more brutal twist, it’s 9/1 that Rangers lose EVERY Old Firm game in the league campaign.
We spoke to Paddy about Rangers’ shocker, and he said: “Going out to part-timers from Luxembourg brings a whole new meaning to Euro Trash.
“They haven’t been able to Progres to the next round, and I’m not sure their boss will be advancing much, either…”
