The reason why doesn’t make much sense now, but essentially it’s the trophy for the champions of the SFL.

So before the SPL came about, that meant the (old old) First Division, which became the Premier Division. When the SPL was formed, the (old) First Division became the highest SFL league, so it took on the trophy (I believe the other trophies propagated down accordingly, with the old Third Division trophy being retired). When the SPL and SFL merged, the trophies just stuck. 

The same happened in England. The winners of the Championship get the trophy that was given to the First Division champions pre-92/93.

They also rebranded the names in England, First Division became League One but that came a few years later.
