Celtic

This is where Celtic rank among the DIRTIEST sides in the Scottish Premiership so far this season

Ahhh, the beautiful game. Football has been evolving rapidly over past few years, with false nines, overlapping centre-backs, and even some 'gegenpressing' continuing to revolutionise the game. However, when it comes down to it, football is very much a contact sport, and there's already been a wealth of bone-crunching challenges - accompanied by a flurry of yellow and red cards - in the Scottish Premiership so far this season.

It's early days yet, with the lion's share of the season still to come, but here's how Celtic's disciplinary record stacks up against the rest of the Scottish Premiership so far this season, ranked from worst to best team discipline. We've awarded a point for a foul, three for a yellow card, and five for a red. Click and scroll your way through the gallery to see how the Hoops compare to their divisional rivals...
