Re: Scottish Football - Nothing Without the Old Firm.

It's amazing that Hendrick isn't even a striker, he's not always been a regular first choice, he often gets played out of his favoured position, he's not always been universally popular with the fans and he doesn't actually score that often and yet his goals feature heavily at the top of the voting...
