Ladbrokes sponsored all four professional divisions in Scotland, and it will be a blow to the finances and prestige of Scottish football should next season begin without a league sponsor.

So, how will the deal affect Celtic? Probably monetarily, not a lot. However, you would imagine that Hoops chief Peter Lawwell will be at the forefront of helping to find a new sponsorship deal.

But there has to be companies interested in the Scottish game. Especially if the Hoops are going for 10 in a row next season.

There always seems to be upheaval around the corner in Scottish football. This is just the latest example of that.

It may be up to Peter Lawwell to use his leadership skills to ensure that any new deal that is signed is a good one for the 42 professional clubs in Scotland.
