Scottish Football Sensation!!!

The Scottish Professional Football League has revealed the names of its league competitions.

The new body was set up following the merger of the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League.

The new top-flight will be called the Scottish Premiership, with the old First Division renamed the Scottish Championship.

Divisions Two and Three will now be known as Scottish League One and Scottish League Two.

"A mountain of work has been done over the summer to get to this point and I believe there is much more that can be done," said SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.
Is he having a laugh? Hardly original are they? Someone just took a peek over Hadrian's Wall!

    Lee Wallace was in the squad for a friendly a few months ago wasn't he ?

    Edit - yes he was - I don't think he played though http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/rangers/braveheart-lee-wallace-is-so-proud-over-scotland-call-up-114398n.20070612
