Season 1976–1977 was the 80th season of Scottish league football.

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 amount of home or away games played by each team, however, this was seen as preferable to a lengthy 52 game season.
