Product description

Amazon Review

Profiles of 100 of the best players in Scotland's colourful history--players like Bobby Templeton, Alan Morton, Himmy Delaney, Kenny Dalglish and Ally McCoist, to name just a few of the greats who inspired generations of football supporters--make up the main part of this book. Their stories, as told here, are tragic, thrilling and funny by turns. The sporting immortaility of men who were legends in their times are introduced to a new audience who have never seen them play.

A Scottish Football Hall of Fame is an original overview of the beautiful game as it developed north of the Tweed by a man who still remembers seeing his first Hampden game at the age of seven. John Cairney's deep love of football shines through on every page as he recounts one illuminating anecdote after another. As he says in the introduction: "Football is more than a mere game in Scotland, it is a part of the Scottish psyche."

Who has ever seen Jim Baxter at his best and can forget it? Or Denis Law flying high, Gordon Smith full of grace on the wing or Jinky Johnstone at his cheekiest? Football memories, and A Scottish Football Hall of Fame are made of moments like these.


Overview of the development of football in Scotland. Cairney's deep and enduring love of the game shines on every page as he recounts the anecdotes and profiles of more than 100 of their best players. Football is more than a mere game in Scotland, it is part of the Scottish psyche.
