Off the Ball's Ugly XI

Jim Leighton

In his many international appearances, Jim Leighton had many questioning the validity of the Tartan Army chant of "Bonnie Scotland"

Willie Miller

Willie Miller, the Aberdeen stalwart, thanked the heavens for the existence of his namesake at Easter Road. For the Hibee, surely a rejected extra from Ryan's Daughter, helped the Dons legend establish himself as the "good-looking" Willie Miller

Doug Rougvie

Here we present Doug "Jaws" Rougvie at his most innocent. No sign here of the toothless terror who, even 20 years after this alpha male dominated the plains of Pittodrie, still makes left-wingers wet the bed

Tommy Turner

Saint Johnstone used to stage their very own TT race to improve players' stamina. Members of the squad would hurl abuse at Tommy Turner and the big man would chase them round the car park at McDiarmid

Carlos Cuellar

This is what happens when you sook on a horseshoe. Quick question: Which type of sweetie does this photo of Carlos Cuellar remind you of? Answer: Gummy bears

Ally Brazil

Not only could Ally Brazil clear a dangerous ball, as this photo shows he could also clear a stadium with his hatchet-faced looks

Tommy McLean

It's a rough decision on wee Tam McLean, but the Off the Ball listeners know best. Anyone seen Alvin and the Chipmunks, by the way?

Stevie Fulton

Some things you never hear in Scottish football: "Stevie Fulton is a cool-headed player."

Robert Fleck

"Scout, get me a square-jawed, blue-eyed goalscoring hero." "Sure, boss. Meet Robert Fleck."

Charlie Adam

Another controversial decision. Charlie Adam may have a set of teeth like a row of condemned houses, but is he really ugly?

Michael Mols

Frankly, we disagree with the Off the Ball listeners on this one. Michael Mols is gorgeous

Henry Hall

Again, we have been merciful. Loads of dudes would pay a fortune to look as good as Henry Hall. But, boy, how his looks departed him

David Bingham

B.I.N.G.O. Just ask yourself - how many bedroom walls are adorned with posters of David Bingham?

Dick Campbell (left, or is he on the right... no, left...)

Dick Campbell and his brother Ian, the Mike and Bernie Winters of Scottish football

George Peat

Beauty and the beast. Gordon Smith looks on aghast at the ghoulish features of the Off the Ball Ugly XI club chairman, George Peat

John Rowbotham

Lastly, meet the match ref, John Rowbotham. As Tam Cowan put it, he's a guy you wouldnae want to meet in your close on a dark night
