Scottish Premier League[edit]

The 2000–01 Scottish Premier League was won by Celtic, 15 points clear of Rangers who finished second. Both teams earned a place in the UEFA Champions League. Hibernian and Kilmarnock finished third and fourth and both therefore earned UEFA Cup berths. St. Mirren were relegated in their first season in the top-flight since the 1991–92 season.
