Celtic had a historic run to the title last time out, going unbeaten for the duration of the domestic season to claim their sixth successive title.
But with Derek McInnes staying put at Aberdeen despite the lure of offers south of the border, and with Rangers getting used to life back in the top flight, the season could be far tighter this time around.
Sky Sports’ head of football Gary Hughes said: “Celtic’s unbeaten season was an incredible feat and one which we followed through to the final weeks of the season. With a number of Scotland’s biggest clubs back in the top flight for the 2017/18 season, and the return of the Edinburgh derby, it should be another remarkable campaign in the SPFL.”
Sky Sports is the home of football with 126 Premier League games all in Ultra HD on Sky Q, 127 matches from the EFL, over 300 matches from La Liga and football from the MLS, Chinese Super League, Eredivisie and much more.Soccer Accumulator Bonus
