Scottish Football is an enormous subject. Deeply ingrained in Scottish culture for well over a century, the vast, all-encompassing research contained within this book delves into every crevice that football in Scotland reaches. The first ever "Encyclopedia of Scottish Football" is packed with in-depth information and contains entries on every Scottish team that has ever participated in the Scottish League, and also on all the great players, managers and personalities of Scottish football, including Jock Stein, Kenny Dalglish, Barry Ferguson, Shunsuke Nakamura, Denis Law, Wattie Arnott, Jim Baxter, Alan Morton, Jimmy McGrory, Terry Butcher and John Robertson. All of Scotland's international games, Scottish Cup finals and Scottish League Cup finals are detailed, as are the winners of all the regional trophies, while also included are Scottish league tables, Scottish caps, derby matches, including the fierce Old Firm rivalry, the amateur leagues and the record of Scottish clubs in Europe.There are also entries on the origins of the game, goalscoring records, terrace chants and penalty shootouts, as well as the less pleasant aspects of the game such as violence, disasters and sectarianism, and even the occasion when Scottish football was affected by an eclipse of the sun. Packed with information about Scotland's vast football heritage, this is a book that followers of Scottish football will want to refer to again and again.
