Notes:
  1. ^ Teams play each other three times (33 matches) before the league is split into two groups (the top six and the bottom six).
  2. ^ Celtic qualified for the Europa League second qualifying round by winning the 2017–18 Scottish Cup. However, since they already qualified for European competition based on their league position, the spot in the second qualifying round normally awarded to the Scottish Cup winners was passed down to Aberdeen, who in turn passed their spot in the first qualifying round, earned by finishing second in the league, was passed down to fourth placed league finisher, Hibernian.
