Scottish League Cup is the most successful team in history.


Rangers FC

The Rangers are the most successful team, with 27 titles when it comes to the Scottish League Cup. The club’s domination in the annual knockout Competition started as early as the 1960s and lasted until 2011.


During these years, the Rangers had won the Scottish League Cup in an interval of at least three to four years.


The club lifted the trophy first in 1947 and two years later in 1949. These wins marked Ranger’s entrance into the League Cup scene.

1961 and 1962 seasons, Rangers claimed two more titles making it four in twelve years.

Rangers continued to win the League Cup consistently until the last title in 2011.


In the club’s history, the League Cup was the main stronghold even though the Scottish Premiership title was won more times.

Rangers also lost eight times in the Scottish League Cup final, most recently in 2020.


Compared to Celtic, the Rangers are best, although the Celts are behind with 19 League Cup titles.



Celtic FC is the second most successful team in Scottish League Cup history, with 19 titles.


The Celts are slightly behind their bitter rivals Rangers FC in this Competition with a trophy difference of about eight. Although Celtic had enjoyed more success in the 21st century, the Celts also had a great run during the early years of the competition.


The Celtic first title won its first title in 1957 and successfully defended it. It took the club another eight years to win the trophy in 1966.


This, Celtic made history by creating a Scottish League Cup record after winning the title in five successive seasons.


A record that record titleholders Rangers FC cannot match since the early era up until today.


Celtic in the modern era of the League Cup


Celtic’s first title in the modern era was in 2001. This was followed closely by another win in 2006.

Celtic holds the worst record, with the number of losses in any final amounting to fifteen times.



After Rangers and Celtic dominance, Aberdeen is the next team and is the third most successful team in Scottish League Cup with six titles. The club would have won more titles only to lose up to nine times in past finals.


The club won its first title within the first ten years of the competition’s history in 1956 and a second twenty-one years later in 1977.


Aberdeen won two titles in the 1990s and once since the start of the 21st century during the 2013-14 football league season in Scotland. The club prides itself on the third-best in the Competition after Rangers and Celtic, who lead the all-time winner’s list with a very high margin.


Hearts of Midlothian

Hearts are the next team on the block, with four titles achieved during the early years of the competition.

Hearts’ first title was in 1955, and the last was in 1963.


Hearts of Midlothian also won the League Cup in 1959 and 1960. The club has also lost three times, and the most recent was during the 2013 final to St Mirren, who claimed the first title with that win.



Hibernian is another side on the Scottish League Cup winners list with three titles.

Hibs won its first title in 1973, a second 19 years later in 1992, and the last time the club tasted victory in the Competition was in 2007.


The club has also lost seven times in past finals, more than the number of titles won in history.



Dundee is also another side in the Competition that successfully defended its title. The club won the 1952 edition and the following season in 1953.


The last time Dundee won the Scottish League Cup title was in 1974.


East Fife

East Fife remains the only side with a perfect record in the oldest National League Cup tournament, with three wins without a loss in any final. The first title was achieved in 1948, and the last was in 1954.

Dundee United


Dundee United is the last time with more than one title in League Cup history. The club won the 1980 edition and successfully defended it the following year, in 1981.


Other teams with at least one title


Kilmarnock – 1 Title

Motherwell – 1 Title

Partick Thistle – 1 Title

St Johnstone – 1 Title

St Mirren – 1 Title

Livingston – 1 Title

Raith Rovers – 1 Title

Ross County – 1 Title
