Season 194 of the S.C.S.L. has kicked off as usual with an expanded Summer Cup, due to the increase of the qualifying teams from 32 to 40. The competition was won by Ayr United, who knocked Rangers out in the Second Round. Celtic fell to Aberdeen at the same stage, but the Dons lost out to Hibs in the Quarter-Finals. The finalists were, however, the less fancied sides Livingston and Ayr United, with the latter triumphing 3—2 to take the trophy.

In the 1st Division, the Dundee clubs topped the table after the first dozen matches. United in particular were in fine form and led the table by five points after 24 matches, with the Old Firm on equal points in second and third places and Dundee having fallen to fourth place. Partick Thistle, one of the promoted teams, were faring excellently in fifth place at this stage. Hibs, who were in bottom place for most of the first half of the season had improved to 13th place by this stage.

United were overtaken into first place by Celtic towards the end of the season, and it looked as though they would not unexpectedly take the title. However, a feisty Alloa side needing points to avoid relegation surprised the Celts with a 1—0 victory in the penultimate match of the season allowed United to go top again. The title was then clinched by the Taysiders with a 2—1 victory over the same Alloa side that had beaten Celtic. It is United's eighth title. Their local rivals Dundee F.C. took third place, pushing Rangers into fourth and Aberdeen only just held off Partick Thistle, who had a great first season back in the top flight, for fifth place. At the bottom, Morton looked like going down a while before the end of the season, and it was largely between Alloa, Ayr United and Arbroath as to who would go down with them. Alloa took crucial points that kept them up and in the end Arbroath went down on goal difference whilst Ayr narrowly survived.

Celtic won their 34th Albion Cup with a 1—0 vicotry over Hearts in the final.
