Earlier this week the vote for the top 50 greatest Scotland internationals was launched.
The vote encompasses all players across the men’s and women’s national teams who have played more than 20 times for their country.
Running for a three-week period, the vote will end on Tuesday, 21 July 2020 at 11.59pm.
Supporters are encouraged to vote for their top five in numerical order with each player allocated points depending on where they are placed.
194 players, across the men’s and women’s game, are in the running to be selected before fans across the country whittle down the select 50.
Steve Clarke and Shelley Kerr have both nominated their top 5.
1. Kenny Dalglish: There is absolutely no doubt that the number one has to be the King, Sir Kenny Dalgish. He’s the most capped Scotsman in history and joint top goalscorer with another of my picks Denis Law but Kenny stands out there on his own.
2. Denis Law was a terrific goalscorer and player. He made a great career down in England and played with both Manchester clubs which is a little bit different.
3. I’m going to go back a few years where I didn’t see much of this guy play but I know my Dad spoke highly of him and when my Dad speaks highly of a footballer, they must be good. Jim Baxter must make it in for sure. Everyone who watched the Scotland v England game in 1967 at Wembley when Baxter ran the show will tell you how good he was for his country.
4. Billy Bremner was a little tenacious midfield player. He was always in there, battling and snarling in everyone’s faces. He played in a great Scotland team that qualified for tournaments.
5. The last one of my picks gave me one of my greatest thrills in my time supporting Scotland. It has to be Joe Jordan. That goal against Czechoslovakia to qualify us for the 1974 World Cup Finals was brilliant.
1. Sir Kenny Dalglish. He played at three World Cups and if you look at his club career it was phenomenal too. He’s iconic when you talk about Scotland and international football. He was my hero growing up. He’s done a lot for the game in Scotland and he was a top, top player.
2. Although I didn’t get a chance to see him play too much, Denis Law has to be number 2. Looking back at the footage, what a talent he was. He’s the only Scottish player to win the Ballon D’or and is joint top scorer for his country.
3. Graeme Souness played across three World Cups and had a great club and international career with great game awareness and liked a tackle. He was a real leader.
4. Julie Fleeting MBE. From Ayr to San Diego and Arsenal. To achieve what she did was incredible. I was fortunate to play in the national team with Julie and she had everything. A really robust striker and you knew we had a chance of scoring whenever she was playing.
5. Kim Little would be my number 5. She’s such a talent and came into the squad at 17. She’s now played for thirteen years with the national team. Her talent on the pitch is phenomenal and she’s a special, special talent.
