    Motherwell stand in the way of Celtic making Scottish football history - no team has ever done the treble two seasons running.

    I suspect that no team in history has ever faced quite such a great disparity in wealth and quality between them and their rivals (I don't just mean Motherwell, but the whole of Scottish professional football).

    That's true - Rangers have some catching up to do both on the pitch and especially in the piggy bank.

    I can think of only two other major footballing nations where only two clubs traditionally dominated throughout their history of league football - Uruguay with Peñarol/Nacional and Portugal with Benfica/Sporting Club, although Porto have been the big boys in Portugal over the last thirty years.
