Season 1976-1977 was the 104th season of competitive football in Scotland and the 80th season of Scottish league football. [1]

After the failure of the Spring Cup and the 26 game season in the 1st & 2nd Divisions, a 39-game season was instituted in these divisions with a slight imbalance in the number of home and away games played by each team; however, this was seen as preferable to a lengthy 52 game season.
