Scottish Premiership is nearing its conclusion with just a few games remaining but the league has already got its winner in Celtic who are only a few points away from ensuring the seventh consecutive Premiership title triumph. They have maintained a sheer dominance throughout the campaign and have maintained a considerable gap with closest competitors Aberdeen and great rivals Rangers FC.

Rangers, however, were supposed to provide a close competition following last season’s top flight promotion but a disastrous summer transfer window under former boss Pedro Caixinha refrained them from reconquering the lost throne. Although they somewhat recovered under Graeme Murty banking on a few decent winter business, their recent downfall followed by a disappointing derby defeat has not altered the equation much. Murty, the former caretaker manager, is unlikely to be retained as the man in charge beyond this season but is open to welcome new players in order to strengthen the Light Blues for the upcoming campaign.

Youssouf Mulumbu, 31, is now being targeted by top Scottish outfits due to an ongoing blistering spell with Kilmarnock – the Scottish top tier side who have performed beyond expectations under former West Brom gaffer Steve Clarke. The Congolese midfielder reunited with his former Baggies boss back in late November following a couple of injury-riddled campaigns at Norwich City and has redefined himself in Premiership since returning to full fitness once again.
