This Scottish football malarkey is exhausting, isn't it? We start the week congratulating Celtic on…

Why does everyone hate the split? It has been controversial since it was introduced in 2001. It’s not a perfect system, but as James Cairney perfectly illustrates it gives the Scottish game more drama than other leagues.
