10 Greatest Foreign Imports to Play in the SPL

The Scottish league may not be the most glamorous, but when it comes to finding gems from outside Britain & Ireland it holds its own on the world stage. 

Some fantastic players have graced the football grounds of the Scottish Premier League (SPL). Now, after the recent rebrand to the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL), we take a look back at the best foreign imports during the SPL years (1998-2012).

The players mentioned in the coming slides are by no means exhaustive. What is certain, though, is that there will be as much debate and disagreement over who hasn't made the 10 chosen as much as who has.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you think someone else should have made it into the top 10, or didn't get a mention at all but should have.

Keep in mind there will be an "honourable mentions" slide after the top 10 have been named.
