The best Scotland-based players good enough to play in Premier League

When it comes to Scottish League, it attracts a lot of criticism, especially from neighboring country England. However, this is quite an unfair situation. We have to admit that the quality of football is reduced in the North, but they still have powerful teams and attractive players. The Scottish football has a rich history, just thinks of the Celtic’s famous Lisbon Lions team who was the first British club to win the European Cup back in 1967. But, let’s focus on the best players in the Scottish Premiership who deserve a chance to play in a Premier League.

Kieran Tierney

post2aKieran should be the most obvious addition considering he has been receiving plenty of reviews for his performance in the last couple of years. Even though he is 20 years old, Kieran has had 116 total appearances for the club already. He is the example of an excellent player who never backs down from a challenge and always support his teammates. Many critics believe that Kieran is one of the best left-backs in European Football. So far, he has performed well in the Champion League and made into UEFA team of the group stage. So far Manchester United was one of the teams who showed interest in this young player.

Alfredo Morelos

An excellent goalkeeper, Morelos just arrived in Glasgow, but there are rumors about his departure. In the last couple of years, China has become a massive football market. Therefore, many players have moved to the Asian continent due to high financial gain. There were a couple of rumors that Morelos will be moving to China, but the most obvious destination would be England. This young Columbian player chooses Finland as his first destination to enter European football field. Even though he played 42 games for HJK, he now has 11 games in the SPFL. He is motivated to continue up the ladder of football, so we think his club will struggle to keep him next season.

Scott Sinclair

post2bSinclair is the only player on this list who has the experience in English football. Chelsea sent him out as a loan, and finally, when he got a chance to settle at a club, he was able to show his talent. At his current club, Celtic, he scored 19 goals, which enabled Swansea, his club, to enter EPL for the first time in their history. However, he didn’t look out of place in the top division, even though he scored eight goals. His play is quite impressive; he has directness and vigorous pace, which caught the eye of many, including Manchester City, who offered to pay $8 million. But moving to Manchester City was a wrong move for him because Sinclair only had 13 appearances in three seasons, which is a devastating fact.

He then moved to Scotland, and things changed. This player managed to score 30 league goals in 58 games. Even though he’s 28, he still has a chance to play in Premier League.
