It's been known for a while that neither of Scotland's big two will feature in the heavily revamped FIFA Club World Cup in 2025.

Celtic nor Rangers will qualify for the competition, despite some early hopes that the latter may sneak in due to their exploits in European competitions in recent years.

But where do the two Glasgow giants feature in the Club World Cup rankings?

Well, despite Rangers being initially tipped to make the tournament, it's actually Celtic who are way out in front of the table.

They sit in 37th spot in the European rankings table on 13 points. There are just 12 spots for teams from Europe to grab though, so Brendan Rodgers' side is still way off from qualifying.

Rangers, on the other hand, sit second from bottom in the table on just four points in 62nd place. Only Turkish side Besiktas are below them.

That's because it was decided the four-year coefficients would be based on Champions League results only, ending the Gers' hopes of featuring given their one and only season in the tournament ended in disaster.

So, unfortunately for them, their run to the Europa League final in 2022, and their other impressive results in that competition, count for nothing regarding this set-up.

Meanwhile, the decision to recognise Ange Postecoglou as Manager of the Year at the London Football Awards has come under scrutiny - from his own peers.

Leyton Orient boss Richie Wellens has aimed a dig at the awards ceremony after he was pipped to the accolade by the Australian.

Postecoglou has only been at Tottenham since last summer when he arrived from Celtic fresh from winning the treble in his final season.

He has of course enjoyed a decent start to life in North London, with his brand of football attracting plenty of plaudits from supporters and pundits.
