Celtic Celtic has won the trophy more than any other team, with 39 trophies to their record, the most recent being in 2019. Rangers, their Glasgow rivals, are not far behind with 33 Scottish Cup victories, the most recent in 2009. St Mirren and Dundee also have multiple winners titles.
Celtic's 39 wins is also more than any other club in Scotland or England. Only one other club has won the cup more than once directly after entering the tournament - Liverpool FC. The Irish club has won the cup four times in total - three of those wins coming within eight years.
Celtic has reached the final more often than any other club (including English ones). They have won more games than anyone else out of 16 teams that have played in the last two seasons of the competition. However, due to their own league system, they cannot enter the next season's tournament until the current one has finished. Other clubs can enter the next season's tournament by winning the Scottish League or another major national trophy.
Celtic has been involved in more finals than any other club (excluding non-league teams). They have won more matches than any other club, and therefore are home free if they reach the final. However, due to their status as a single club who plays in several different leagues around Scotland, they cannot participate in all of them.
Celtic are one of just five clubs in history to have won more than 100 trophies. The team has won the Scottish League Championship 51 times, the most recent being in 2019–20, the Scottish Cup 40 times, and the Scottish League Cup 19 times. They are also one of only three European teams (along with FC Barcelona and AC Milan) to have achieved the treble - winning the league title, the cup competition and the supercup in the same season.
In terms of overall success, Celtic is the most successful club in Scotland and also one of the most successful in Europe. With a record number of titles, they are also the most successful club in the country. Their dominance can be seen by looking at the list of all-time top scorers for Celtic: the majority of these players have played for the team during their career, with only two exceptions. One exception is Alfred "Bobby" Commy who played for the team from 1926 to 1937 and scored 146 goals. The other exception is Georgie Forbes who played from 1936 to 1946 and scored 195 goals.
Forbes is still the top scorer for Celtic/Glasgow Rangers today because he was able to play in an era when scoring wasn't as important as it is now. Today's players are not allowed to play for another club before completing 25 games with their current team so that no advantage is given to players who receive loan deals or trials.
The Scottish Cup has been won by twenty-five different teams. Celtic have won the title the most times, with 37 triumphs. Dundee United are next on list with 10 wins.
Celtic have won the Scottish Cup since 1889 - the first of their many victories. The Old Firm rivals have met in the final every year since 1901 with Celtic winning every single match.
Celtic will be hoping to win a record thirteenth Scottish Cup this season when they take on Aberdeen in the final at Hampden Park on 26 May. The match will be played just hours before the start of the Euro 2016 tournament in France.
Celtic were founded in 1887 by members of the Celtic Football Club of Glasgow. They originally played their home games at Bellfield Park in the Saltmarket area of the city but moved to Ibrox Stadium in 1890. The team was responsible for developing football in Scotland and during its early years played according to rules established by the English FA. In 1891, however, it switched its affiliation to the Scottish Football Association and has remained so ever since.
Ibrox is a stadium in Glasgow, Scotland, which has been the home of Rangers F.C. since 1936.
Rangers have won 160 games, while Celtic have won 157. The Blues also have 120 league victories, while the Bhoys have 107. Celtic, on the other hand, won the Scottish FA Cup by a score of 25 to 16 against their Old Firm opponents.
Then there was a general alignment of primarily Scottish Catholic support for Celtic and the country's Protestant majority supporting Rangers. Who among them has won the most derbies? Given that the first game was played in 1890, it's quite close. Rangers have won 160 games, while Celtic have won 157.
Dominance of the Old Firm since 1890? Over the previous 128 years, there have been 410 Old Firm derbies in major competitions, although Rangers have won more, with 160 triumphs to Celtic's 152 and 98, breaking a deadlock.
Three Scottish teams have won at least one European championship. Celtic won the European Cup in 1967, Rangers won the Cup Winners' Cup in 1972, and Aberdeen won both the Cup Winners' Cup and the Super Cup in 1983..

Dave King's suggestion that Parkhead will reign supreme for years to come will have rung alarm bells on both sides of Glasgow. This hare has been on the run for, what, three years? But Neil Lennon started things in motion when he reflected on his chances and asked, "How many titles can you win?"
Celtic has won the Scottish League Championship 50 times, the Scottish Cup 39 times, the Scottish League Cup 18 times, and the European Cup only once.
Each of the two clubs has also won the Scottish Cup and the league in the same season on several occasions. Rangers and Celtic have won 18 doubles at the end of the 2018-19 season, second only to Linfield in Northern Ireland.
Rangers did it in the 1990s, Celtic did it in the 1970s, and they will aim for 10 in a row next season, whenever that starts, which has never been done in Scottish football. Opt in and place a bet of PS25 or more before Sunday at 23:59.
Celtic won the Scottish Premier League with a 2-0 victory against St Johnstone at Parkhead, but there were some nerves along the road. Henrik Larsson and Harold Brattbakk scored the goals on a day when Celtic needed to win to prevent Rangers from winning ten titles in a row. The club's board had promised supporters that would never happen, but it nearly did.
However, it was still very much a family affair for the champions, with 86% of the annual budget coming from within the club. That means they could only afford one player in the summer, and that was David Weir. He was the only new face at Parkhead as everyone else remained the same as the previous season. Even so, manager Neil Lennon managed to bring in three players through the transfer window and signed two more on loan.
Lennon also started using his bench more effectively, with the addition of several younger players giving him some depth to his team. That enabled them to withstand some heavy defeats early in the season, which might have ended many other teams' campaigns before they even began.
Celtic went into the New Year with a chance to secure a place in history, but it wasn't to be as St Johnstone beat them 1-0 at home. However, both clubs lost their next games so it didn't make any difference who won that match.
