One of the greatest Scottish footballers of all time, Graeme Souness’ story with Scotland is arguably one of unfulfilled potential with his national side.

Although he was a superstar over at Anfield, he arguably should of got more of a chance for Scotland despite playing well when he did get the nod. Nevertheless, Souness should make the side for his contributions to the Liverpool side of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.

5. Jim Baxter

A supremely gifted footballer, Jim Baxter is one of the greatest Scottish players to have played the game. A technically sound left-half, Baxter turned out for Raith Rovers, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest, but his best years came with Rangers. A three-time Scottish First Division and Scottish Cup winner, Baxter won 34 caps for Scotland.

“Slim Jim” helped the Rangers to ten trophies during a five-year spell in the 60s, due to his tactical vision, his technical ability and his dribbling skills.

The left midfielder is also famous for performing “keepy uppies” to taunt the English players in 1967 as he waited for teammates to find a good position.

4. Jimmy McGrory

It would be difficult to leave Jimmy McGrory out of this squad. From Jock Dodds to Hughie Gallacher, Scotland have had some fine centre-forwards, but none as prolific as McGrory. The Celtic legend scored a total of 538 goals in 534 games, almost exclusively for the Bhoys. The diminutive Glaswegian renowned for his bullet headers sadly won just 7 caps for Scotland, scoring 6 goals.
