Biography

Ally made his Scotland debut in a 0-0 friendly draw against Holland on the 29th April 1986, though he had to wait until September 1987 to score his first goals.  Scotland faced Hungary in a friendly at Hampden and he netted twice in a 2-0 win.

McCoist earned 61 caps and scored 19 goals for his country, most memorable is probably his stunning strike to defeat Switzerland at Euro 96.  His 19 goals make him our fifth highest goal scorer of all time.
