Final day drama in the Scottish Premier League

After 37 hard-fought matches, we still have no clear winner of the 2011 Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League. Although Rangers have a big advantage - it will be a final day of action steeped in drama.

Ahead of the last set of fixtures, Rangers are top by one slender point so you would have to fancy them to lift the trophy which is priced at 2/9.

All Rangers have to do is win and the title is theirs, should they fail to win then all eyes will be on Celtic.

As Celtic's goal difference is four goals better than Rangers', Celtic can still win it if they a draw as long as Rangers lose. Celtic to turn it all around and win the league is priced at 3/1.

If Rangers draw, Celtic need all three points and it will be the fans in green and white celebrating.

The Hoops are by no means out of it, they have a home match against Motherwell while Rangers must travel away to Kilmarnock.

You really have to expect Celtic to do their part and get all three points. The Bhoys are 1/6 at home to Motherwell who are 11/1 to spoil the party and win on the road.

Celtic have lost just once at Parkhead all season, scoring 47 goals and conceding just 11 which is a record low in the league.

I think Celtic with a -1 goal handicap looks a good price at 1/2, as does Celtic to be the only team to score at 3/4. When you consider how freely their score goals at home and how tight their defence has been all season, they look like certs.

Kris Commons will be suspended after his red card in the match away at Hearts. For first goalscorer bets then it is hard to look past Gary Hooper (11/4), Anthony Stokes (7/2) or Georgios Samaras (4/1).

If Celtic get maximum points as expected, then all that really matters is how Rangers fare away at Kilmarnock.

Rangers have lost just two matches away from home this season, scoring a league-high 40 goals. They are 2/7 to win the match while Kilmarnock are 17/2.

Killie have struggled to find consistent form at Rugby Park, losing eight matches and winning just six this season. The best hope they have of having a hand in the title race is most likely to play for a draw which is 9/2.

If you fancy a Rangers player to score first then look no further than Nikica Jelavic (5/2) or Kyle Lafferty (10/3). They are both in top scoring form and could easily add more against a leaky Killie defence.

In all honesty, it is hard to see past both sides winning, which leaves the ball firmly in Rangers' court. I think the only chance Celtic have of winning the title is for Killie to play out of their skins and take a point from Rangers while The Bhoys get all three points.

However, that is unlikely and I think the blue ribbons can be tied on to the cup early, barring a big upset - the cup will be going to The Gers this season and the blue half of Glasgow will take the bragging rights.
