With the truncated 2019/20 Scottish football season now finished thanks to all twelve Premiership clubs unanimously voting to end the top division as it stands after 30 league matches, the points due to each club in the four divisions can be added to their existing totals and the new ‘Natural Order’ revealed.
This year witnesses another new entry into the Scottish Leagues, with Cove Rangers becoming the eighty first club to play in the set-up since 1890, and the Aberdeen based outfit go straight in at number seventy five after scoring eleven points in their successful League Two championship winning season, leapfrogging founder members Cowlairs as well as Dumbarton Harp and Ayr Parkhouse.
It is in fact the less established newer clubs that see most of the movement in the historical standings, with Elgin City leaping three clubs into fifty sixth place, the most significant of these being Renfrewshire based Johnstone who spent eleven seasons in the league at the start of the nineteenth century.
The Rangers continue their impressive start to life in Scottish football, jumping to forty fifth place, leaving Meadowbank Thistle behind and now have their eyes set firmly on Leith Athletic directly above them. Likewise, Inverness, who now sit in thirty third place after overtaking Stenhousemuir have made significant strides since joining over twenty-five years.
The only established club to make any headway towards the traditional elite end of the table was St Johnstone who leapfrogged old Airdrie into fifteen place, but remain considerably adrift of the top ten, where Celtic stretched their lead over 1872 Rangers by another eight eighty points, with the former Ibrox club of course frozen on their excellent points total which should keep them in second place for most of the next decade until the rest catch and overtake them.
