Scotland Preview: 10 Major Transfers
by Paul Kennedy, August 3rd, 2007 6:45AM



Celtic and Rangers -- no surprise -- are the runaway favorites in the Scottish Premier League, which kicks off Saturday.

Celtic won a league and cup double last season but faces a fight from Rangers under veteran manager Walter Smith, who took over in mid-season. Celtic paid a Scottish record for Hibernian and Scotland midfielder Scott Brown: 4.4 million pounds ($8.9 million).

Rangers made a number of summer signings, including that of American winger DaMarcus Beasley.
