Remarkably, Kenny Miller finished as the top goalscorer in the Scottish Premier League last season, despite a January move to Bursaspor. His tally of 21 goals was unsurpassed by any other player and it will probably pay to consider a Rangers or Celtic player to score the most goals again next season.
Gary Hooper was just one goal behind Miller by the final reckoning and the Celtic striker will surely be filling his boots again this term, with the former Scunthorpe man open to improvement at the age of 23. It is little surprise to see that William Hill make him the 3/1 favourite this time around.
Meanwhile, the blue half of Glasgow will be hoping that Nikica Jelavi? can fire in the goals that help Rangers hold on to the title. The Croatian managed 16 goals in 23 appearances last term and is available at odds of 10/3 (Paddy Power – £100 free betting) for those that think he will claim the most goals.
Rangers had hoped to partner Jelavi? with David Goodwillie next season, although Dundee United resisted the Glasgow club’s £1 million bid for the striker and the 22-year-old will line up for the Terrors – at least until January. He managed 17 goals last term and can be backed at 8/1 (Ladbrokes – £30 free bet).
Anthony Stokes (9/1 bet365 – £200 free bets) will be hoping to upstage Hooper in a Celtic shirt next season, while Kris Commons (14/1 bet365) should also trouble opposition defences throughout the campaign and it would be a surprise if the winner came from outside this pool of players.
