Scottish League Cup – Wikipedia

Association football competition in Scotland

Football tournament
The Scottish League Cup ( besides known as the Premier Sports Cup for sponsorship reasons ) is a football competition open to all scots Professional Football League ( SPFL ) club. first held in 1946–47, it is the oldest national League Cup in being. The rival had a true smasher format but became a group and hard rival from 2016–17.

Rangers are the record holders of the cup, winning 27 times. Celtic are the holders, winning their twentieth title after beating Hibernian 2–1 at Hampden Park on 19 December 2021. The domestic television rights are held by Premier Sports who replaced BT Sport from the 2019–20 season .

format [edit ]

historically, the Scottish League Cup has oscillated between being a straightforward single-elimination hard tournament and having an initial group phase. Since the 2016–17 season, the League Cup has used a group phase format. The format has eight groups of five teams playing each other once in a round-robin format. [ 1 ] The forty teams playing in the group phase dwell of the 38 league clubs who are not participating in UEFA competitions, along with two teams from outside the league. [ 1 ] [ notice 1 ] In the group phase, three points are given for a gain and one point for a draw. If matches are level after ninety minutes, a punishment shoot-out is held with the winning team gaining a bonus point. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The groups are regionalised : there are four groups in the North section, and four in the South section, with three pots for each regional section – clear seeds, second seeds, and unseeded clubs. Each group will consist of one circus tent seed, one second seed, and three unseeded clubs. The eight group winners and three best runner-up build up into the second base round off, where they are joined by the five clubs participating in UEFA competitions. [ 1 ] The tournament then adopts a single-elimination hard format. There are no replays, which means all draw matches are decided by extra prison term and a penalty gunfight, if necessity. The semi-final matches are played on a achromatic ground, determined by the localization and size of supports involved. The final game is traditionally played at Hampden Park in Glasgow, though due to renovations some finals have been played at other venues, such as Celtic Park or Ibrox Stadium. The newly format besides allowed the SPFL to reintroduce the two-weekend winter unwrap in January. Along with the newly designed tournament, a fresh television bargain for it was announced as BT Sport took over rights from BBC Scotland. [ 2 ] In February 2016 the SPFL announced the League Cup final examination would be moved to November. [ 1 ] [ 3 ]

history [edit ]

The cup has its origins in a regional cup competition called the Southern League Cup which was introduced in 1940 when wartime restrictions led to a suspension of the scots Cup. This tournament was largely regional and did not involve all of the teams who comprised the scots Football League anterior to the outbreak of war. The first base official Scottish Football League Cup was contested during the 1946–47 season, when Rangers defeated Aberdeen in the final. [ 4 ] The rival was very democratic with supporters during the first few decades of its universe. The tournament consisted of 8 or 9 groups consisting of 4 or 5 teams. The groups were seeded into 2 sets with the top 16 teams in Division 1 making up the beginning four groups. This guaranteed that 4 ‘top ‘ teams would play 4 ‘lesser ‘ teams in the quarter-finals. extra games when the Premier League was formed and expanded european competitions meant that by the early 1980s, its long-winded format, which involved group rounds played early in the season leading to two-legged knock-out rounds, attracted much criticism. In the mid-1980s the tournament was revamped to a short, one elimination knock-out format with a final meet prior to Christmas, which provided the exhilaration of a cup concluding early in the season. During the 1999–2000 competition, the semi-finals and final examination were moved to the spring to avoid the congestion of fixtures caused by the early rounds of the UEFA clubhouse competitions and Scotland ‘s representatives in Europe were given automatic byes until the third base round of competition. From the 2016–17 edition the League Cup reverted to a group stage format, with single-elimination knock-out in the last 16 onwards. [ 2 ]

trophy [edit ]

Since the competition ‘s origin, the winning team has been awarded the three-handled trophy known as the Scottish Football League Cup. however, during the 1980s when Skol laager sponsored the competition, a second gear trophy known as the Skol Cup was awarded a well. After the 1987–88 rival when Rangers won their third Skol Cup, they were given the trophy permanently and a new Skol Cup with a slenderly unlike design was introduced the following season. It was long term Clyde and then Scottish Football League chair John McMahon who donated the trophy that is placid awarded to the winners of the contest to this day. [ 17 ]

european qualification [edit ]

Until 1995, the winners of the Scottish League Cup were granted a seat in the UEFA Cup, although this privilege was rarely invoked as the winning teams normally qualified for Europe by some other means such as winning the League Championship or scottish Cup. The most late case was Raith Rovers who represented Scotland in the 1995–96 UEFA Cup after winning the League Cup the former season as a First Division club.

Why did Cristiano Ronaldo leave Juventus? Explaining star’s transfer move to Manchester United

good a few weeks after Lionel Messi, it was Cristiano Ronaldo ’ s turn to switch clubs. The two biggest stars in ball-shaped football are joining new teams in the lapp transplant windowpane after Manchester United confirmed that it had acquired Ronaldo from italian giant Juventus .
The cabaret announced the move barely hours after Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri revealed that Ronaldo told him he would not be playing for Juventus again. The actor cleaned out his locker and said farewell to his teammates on Friday, before reportedly hopping on a plane to Portugal.

And just like that, with a year remaining on his contract at Juventus, the 36-year-old Ronaldo will be returning to the cabaret where he became a worldly concern star during six seasons from 2003 through 2009. It ‘s a stun turn of events given that earlier in the same day it was believed that Manchester City was silent in pole position to sign the Portuguese star topology, only for the Red Devils to beat them to it. And merely a workweek before, it sounded like he would be seeing out his contract at Juventus .

Why did Ronaldo leave Juventus?

Juventus is once again the favored to win the italian league title in the season that precisely started and the club is besides expected to make a trench run in the UEFA Champions League contest. So why would Ronaldo leave one of the most storied clubs in Europe ?
Getty Images hypertext transfer protocol : //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/c3/6e/cristiano-ronaldo-juventus-celebration-2020-2021_vyefs095n0mb1j6ywo2sv12qm.jpg ? t=-2008404101 & w=500 & quality=80 Although Ronaldo has delivered in a big way since arriving at Juventus — both on and off the field — his deviation works out for both the actor and cabaret. Why a move made sense for Ronaldo: Although Juventus has elite talent, it ’ second clear that the baseball club is not on the lapp level as Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in the race to win the UEFA Champions League. Ronaldo is a five-time Champions League winner and with two more titles he would set the all-time record for european clubhouse championships for a musician. At 134 goals and count, he already has the most goals of any musician in the history of the competition. Ronaldo cares about his stigmatize and bequest and he wants to go down as the greatest of all clock. If he can spend the next two or three seasons with a team that can help him win the bad trophy and outshine Messi and PSG, he could so far shape the narrative about how he will be remembered. It wasn ’ thyroxine going to happen at Juventus. MORE: UEFA Champions League group draw results The Juventus perspective: Ronaldo is a goal-scoring car and he was the lead scorer in Serie A last season ( 29 goals ). His 101 goals in 134 games for Juve — the fastest player to 100 goals in club history — helped Juventus win all three domestic titles during his time at the clubhouse. But the Turin-based side didn ’ t spend $ 120 million to acquire Ronaldo in 2018 to win in Italy. The Bianconeri were hoping Ronaldo would get them over the bulge and help them win their first UEFA Champions League entitle since 1996. It hasn ’ thyroxine happened — three different coaches in three seasons did not help — and Juventus suffered shock absorber smasher round exits in each of his three seasons, never reaching the semifinals. Reports suggested that Ronaldo took the Round of 16 elimination to Porto in March particularly hard, and less than six months subsequently he ’ south on his means out. Getty Images hypertext transfer protocol : //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/1d/77/cristiano-ronaldo-juventus-champions-league-2021_u9osjnnc84cj1p6elfdyxb2xg.jpg ? t=-2008329341 & w=500 & quality=80

There are besides off-field considerations. Given the gross challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, an estimate $ 235 million budget deficit this season, and Ronaldo ’ s $ 100 million-a-year price to the club between his wage and the amortization of his transfer fee, moving on besides makes feel from a fiscal point of view. The Ronaldo skill in 2018 no doubt helped elevate the Juventus sword : The cabaret has a higher external profile, double the sociable followers, and it leveraged Ronaldo for meaning increases in revenues and partnerships. But the pandemic changed the fiscal expectation for the club, and on the plain Juventus is resetting and going younger. The time for a Ronaldo transfer worked across the board. here was Ronaldo ‘s Instagram farewell message to fans :

Ronaldo rejoins Manchester United

There were early indications that a summer move was a real hypothesis since before Euro 2021. That ‘s when reports began to surface about Juventus needing to transfer Ronaldo to balance the budgets, there were images of moving trucks transporting his cars away from his home in Turin, and there was besides the Instagram post that truly felt like a adieu to Italy and Juve fans. As the summer weeks went by, newly rumors surfaced of potential interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, depending on how the dominoes fell with the potential transfer of young french headliner Kylian Mbappe. Ronaldo ’ randomness indignant Instagram post in reaction to all that transfer chatter conspicuously left out note of his committedness to spending his final examination season with Juventus. But on the day of the clubhouse ’ randomness first italian Serie A meet of the new season, Juventus administration and its head coach indicated that Ronaldo was n’t going anywhere, apparently putting an end to the drama. Juve head coach Allegri said Ronaldo told him at that time that he was staying. But then “ the transfer commercialize happened, ” as Allegri put it. “ The situation changed and we need to accept it. ” Most believed that change was Manchester City missing out on No. 1 forward target Harry Kane, who opted to stay at Tottenham Hotspur this summer. Man City was linked with Ronaldo in an apparent undertake to fill the center forward character that Kane would have occupied. The reigning english champions managed by Pep Guardiola have frequently operated without a true central striker, with a host of attackers filling the character last season and midfielders besides picking up the goal-scoring slump. Ronaldo would have proven an interest burst with the number of scoring chances that Manchester City generates. And Man City, a Champions League finalist in 2021, is hungry to win its first european title. So the ambitions would have lined up. But it ‘s not a move that would have sat well with Manchester United supporters and the club came out of the nowhere to strike a bargain to bring him back to Old Trafford. Ronaldo became a ball-shaped ace and Manchester United icon during his six seasons at the clubhouse. Former teammate and current Man United promontory coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer talked about his clubhouse ‘s interest curtly before the official confirmation. “ He is a caption of this club, the greatest player of all clock time if you ask me, ” Solskjaer told media Aug. 27 in the wake of the news that Ronaldo was leaving Juventus. “ He knows what we feel about him. If he was always going to move away from Juventus, he knows we ‘re here. ” Getty Images hypertext transfer protocol : //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/81/ce/cristiano-ronaldo-manchester-united-2004_f1q5h5oqhfnb11r44pbhfx4b2.jpg ? t=-2008282133 & w=500 & quality=80

The Red Devils were there : with a $ 33 million transfer tip to add Ronaldo to a team with a leading attack that features Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and up-and-comer Mason Greenwood. The $ 33 million transfer fee will satisfy Juventus, who were reportedly hoping for $ 35 million in order not to lose money on the Ronaldo process. For a soon-to-be 37-year-old Ronaldo, who was in the final examination year of his narrow, it ‘s not a bad conduct for the Italians. And Juventus besides gets his brawny contract off the club ‘s books. It ‘s a act that could be the storybook ending for Ronaldo ‘s european career. Manchester United will besides feature in the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League, competing in a group that includes Villarreal, Atalanta and BSC Young Boys. With Ronaldo, the Red Devils are immediately a serious rival to win their first Champions League trophy since 2008, when Ronaldo however starred for them. Their last Champions League final came in May 2009, Ronaldo ‘s last season with Manchester United before a transfer to Real Madrid. It remains to be seen whether Ronaldo will be in the Manchester United team a soon as the Aug. 29 trip to Wolves for Matchday 3 of the English Premier League season. It would seem more probably for Ronaldo to wait until after the September international demote to make his debut against Newcastle on September 11 at Old Trafford .
