With around 10 matches to go before the Scottish Premiership finishes for the summer, Celtic are all but mathematically guaranteed the title.

The most intriguing battle, however, is for second placethe proverbial "best of the rest."

Four clubs can realistically throw their hats into the ring for that particular fight, with current second-placed team Aberdeen being the clear favourites following their Scottish League Cup triumph on Sunday over Inverness—another team worthy of consideration.

Add in Stuart McCall's Motherwell and Jackie McNamara's entertaining Dundee United and the quest for second is by no means a foregone conclusion.

The standings as of 16 March 2014:

Position Team Played Points
2. Aberdeen 28 54
3. Motherwell 28 51
4. Dundee Utd 29 47
5. Inverness CT 27 45

 

Here, we take a look at the contenders for second place in the Scottish Premiership and point out each side's key figure for the run-in.
