Neil McCann

Scotland 2017

McCann started his career with Dundee, before having spells with Hearts, Rangers, Southampton and Falkirk. He moved to Rangers a few months after making his international debut against Lithuania in 1998, and went on to play a further 25 times. The most successful period of his career was while at Ibrox, where he won three league titles, four Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups. His finest moment for the Gers came in May 1999 when he scored two goals against rivals Celtic, ensuring Rangers lifted the SPL trophy. Injuries meant he struggled during his time with Southampton and in his second spell at Hearts. He then helped Falkirk avoid relegation and reach the Scottish Cup final in 2009, which was due to be his last ever match. However, he came out of retirement in 2011 to play in three matches for Dundee, notching a stoppage time winner on his debut and helping them stave off the drop to the division two.
