Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Denis Law

Answer: Torino

Law moved from Manchester City to Torino in 1961 for a then record fee involving a British player of 110,000. By his own admission, he struggled to adapt to the style of play in Italy, as well as having problems with the way that Italian football was run compared to UK.

The final straw during his brief stay came when a referee sent him off after being told to do so by Torino's head coach and he returned to Scotland in protest. Torino then sold him to Manchester United with whom he twice won the English league as well as the FA Cup and in 1964 became the first Scottish player to win the coveted Ballon d'Or award. Law was capped by Scotland 55 times, scoring an impressive 30 goals.
2. Scott Booth

Answer: FC Twente

In a professional career that spanned 14 years, Booth only played for one Scottish club, Aberdeen, at the start of his career and again at the end. In between his times at Aberdeen, he played for Borussia Dortmund of Germany and Utrecht and Vitesse Arnhem of Netherlands.

It is for another Dutch club though, FC Twente based in Enschede that he really made his mark abroad, with 21 goals in 103 appearances as well as helping the team win the KNVB Cup in 2001. Booth represented Scotland 22 times and his goals in Euro '96 qualifying helped Scotland qualify for their second successive Euro championships.
3. Graeme Souness

Answer: Sampdoria

Prior to joining Sampdoria from Liverpool in 1984, Souness had played for Middlesbrough with loan spells at Montreal Olympique of Canada and West Adelaide of Australia.
Liverpool was where he found his greatest success both at domestic and international level and his career with the Scottish team was starting to draw to a close when he moved to Sampdoria, but he did get selected 14 times while there to add to his then tally of 39 caps. His final cap was awarded in 1986, whilst player-manager of Glasgow giants, Rangers.
4. Alan McInally

Answer: Bayern Munich

McInally had played for Ayr United and Celtic in Scotland as well as Aston Villa in England without being called up to play for his country, but that all changed when he moved to German team Bayern Munich in 1989. He played 40 league games for Bayern and his form impressed so much that he also won eight Scottish caps including one in the 1990 World Cup finals against Costa Rica.
5. Paul Lambert

Answer: Borusia Dortmund

Lambert may have only been with Dortmund for a little over a season, but that was long enough for him to be a part of the team that won the Champions League final in 1997, with Dortmund beating Juventus of Italy 3-1. In the final, Lambert not only marked Zinedine Zidane so closely that he effectively took him out of the game, he also laid on the pass from which Karl-Heinz Riedle scored the German's opening goal. In total, Lambert won 40 Scottish caps during his career, and scored one goal as well, in 2002 when after being 2-0 down against Faroe Islands, he helped his country finish with a draw.
6. Mo Johnston

Answer: FC Nantes

Johnston was first called upon by his country when playing league football for Watford in the English league. He then moved back to Scotland to play for Celtic and the international call ups continued, as they did when in 1987 he moved to French side Nantes.

He would go on to play for Rangers, Everton, Hearts and Falkirk before ending his career with Kansas City Wizards in USA. Johnston turned out 38 times for Scotland and scored 14 goals, including a penalty against Sweden in the 1990 World Cup.
7. Joe Jordan

Answer: AC Milan

Jordan was known as one of football's hard men during his time with Leeds United and Manchester United, but he certainly had the skill to balance his style of play out as well. He moved from Manchester United to AC Milan in 1981 and helped the team gain promotion from Serie B during his time there before moving on to another Italian club, Hellas Verona.

In 1982, Jordan became the first Scottish player to have scored in three consecutive World Cups, having also hit the back of the net in the 1974 and 1978 competitions.
8. Steve Archibald

Answer: Barcelona

Between 1980 and 1985, Steve Archibald could do nothing wrong. He was a member of the Aberdeen side that won the Scottish Premier Division before moving south of the border to Tottenham Hotspur, where he won the UEFA Cup and two FA Cups before moving on to Barcelona where he helped them win La Liga. Also during this time he was selected to play for his country 27 times, scoring four goals as well.
9. John Collins

Answer: Monaco

Although Scotland would lose 2-1, Collins is always remembered for scoring a penalty to equalise against Brazil in the opening game of the 1998 World Cup.
Collins played club football for Scottish sides Hibernian and Celtic before moving to Monaco, who play in French Ligue 1, with whom he won the domestic league in 1997, beating Paris Saint-Germain into second place. Collins won a total of 58 international caps and after leaving Monaco played for Everton before ending his career at Fulham.
10. Oliver Burke

Answer: RB Leipzig

Although Burke was born in Scotland, he grew up in Leicestershire and began his professional career with Nottingham Forest. His excellent form for Forest soon resulted in many Premier League teams taking notice, but he chose instead to sign for German side Leipzig in 2016, for a fee which was a new record for a transfer involving a Scottish player.

After just one year in Germany, Burke broke his own transfer-fee record when he moved from Leipzig to West Bromwich Albion. He first represented Scotland while playing for Forest, but was also called up to play against Malta, Lithuania and Canada while at Leipzig.
