Scotland has topped the UEFA coefficient table gaining the most points out of all European countries. 

Scottish clubs in Europe have so far racked up 4.500 coefficient points, and encouragingly, despite some disappointments, all teams in Scotland have contributed to the total - albeit some more than others. 

For a win in European competitions during the playoffs for the top competitions in Europe each team playing for .250 national coefficient points for a win and 0.125 points for a draw in any fixture. 

While Kilmarnock only contributed one win, and Celtic got knocked out of Champions League qualification, they still managed to rack up a number of points with their two wins over AIK. 

Aberdeen also contributed with a few wins, while Rangers progressed from the first round to the group stage for the second year in a row. 

While the number of points gained are based on games played - thus skewed for countries that have played a lot of qualifiers against those that haven't - it is still encouraging for Scottish football and for future qualification campaigns. Especially when Scotland have outscored teams around them on the coefficient ladder such as Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Serbia, who all had a similar number of teams in the qualification stages. 

National coefficients are based on the results of each association's clubs in the five previous UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League seasons, and with Celtic and Rangers both in the Europa League, the points may continue to rack up.

Ahead of this current season, Scotland sat in 20th position with the nations being in the top 10 getting an automatic place in the Champions League group stages.

Two teams will get into Champions League qualification stages if Scotland manages to rise to 15th place. Currently, the nation would finish the season in 16th. 

By moving up to at least 17th place, Scottish Champions League qualifiers would avoid the first qualifying round.

Scottish football fans will be hoping the country can get to that elusive 15th place and secure two teams into Champions League qualifying, however, in order to do so, Celtic and Rangers will need to continue to put up points so that the coefficient can climb above nations such as Serbia, Croatia, Switzerland and Greece and Cyprus.

For qualifying next year, the 15/16 is replaced with the current season meaning we already have a 1.500 gain.
