Set-up in 1998, the Scottish Premier League has brought Scottish football into the modern era, replacing the previous Scottish Football League setup.
Dominated by the two Glasgow giants, Celtic and Rangers, the SPL has grown into a modern, competitive, and highly entertaining league.
Since its inauguration, there have been only two teams which have won it, with the spoils being shared by Celtic and Rangers between them.
Comprised of 12 teams, the Scottish Premier League has played host to its fair share of big name players during that period.
Players such as Henrik Larsson, Tore Andre Flo, and Aiden McGeady have all made their mark in the SPL, and some of these have since went on to further their careers elsewhere.
There have also been some illustrious managers to have taken on the challenges of the SPL, with Martin O'Neill, Alex McLeish and Walter Smith all having taken on the managerial reigns of teams in the SPL, guiding them to success domestically and in European competition.
Not long after the formation of the SPL, several teams spent heavily on players and wages, with the result that some clubs were taken into serious financial difficulties. Motherwell, Dundee, and Livingstone all fell into administration. Other teams have also felt the constraints of the economic climate, with a report at the time having labelled 5 SPL teams as being insolvent.
There has been a resurgence in interest in the game, finances are being looked after more carefully, and clubs are now bringing through their own talented players, instead of overspending on overpriced and overrated footballers from abroad.
These days, the outlook for the SPL looks healthy.
