    Scotland's most decorated player

    Dropping the unpopular minimum cap threshold and extending it out to the top 20 looks as follows. I am planning to make this in to a video so I would be grateful to hear about any errors (Ian Ferguson's wiki page is not very specific so there is a bit of guess work in his split of medals). Honourable mentions to James Forrest (12), Roy Aitken (12) , Alex McLeish (11), Willie Miller (11), Stuart McCall (11) and Paul Lambert (10) who are the other Scottish players in double figures.

    Good shout. I am using wikipedia as the source and Fergie's page implies no caps but 7 appearances (and 9 goals) for a Scotland XI in 1967. In the notes its defined as: "The Scotland XI team was made up of young, promising players who were to be given the taste of international football with the aim of developing a team for the 1970 World Cup. With a number of Scottish clubs unexpectedly reaching final stages of various European cups, a number of players had to pull out from the touring team to help their clubs. The Scotland XI played nine matches and won them all."

    Cheers Fringo - I think you are right, I will review the list and maybe put in to video format which might be a bit more engaging. Will also think about the manager list. Based on the same criteria of only counting leagues, national cups etc Alex Ferguson won a mind boggling 34 medals (16 leagues, 9 national cups, 5 league cups and 4 European trophies). Mental!

    Some other lists (not related to Scottish team) include community shield, European super cup, even runners ups medals etc The more contentious criteria is having a minimum cap threshold (we have set it at 25) so several of the Lisbon Lions have missed the list as has Ian Ferguson as Toepoke pointed out earlier. Bobby Lennox would top the list with 25 medals but he only got 10 caps so would welcome views on whether a review is in order? Not keen on weighting medals although I agree with the underlying point.

    Great spot Tartan McCole - we had denied Broonie his latest league cup medal. Have updated now, will need to update this entry again soon no doubt....

    Why would we have an argument about something as benign as a list of players who won medals?

    We forgot to mention Murdo McLeod getting sparked clean out from a brazilian free-kick. Dunga was it?

    Aye - there is a few like that, cracking players whose Scotland careers never really got going (Jimmy Johnstone as well). We could adjust the criteria down from 25 caps but that seems the minimum to us to properly be classified as a Scotland player.....
