A short snappy tournament over a weekend needs to suit all 5 clubs - not easy when each of the 5 clubs have there own differing league and cup and friendly priorities plus pre-season training and under-20 squad or not situations.

Re: Who would you classify as the big Scottish clubs?

Well there are no rules - it is down to whatever criteria you personally deem relevant as to who comes into this category. I would say the 'big clubs' are those who have won all 3 major honours - Rangers, Celtic, Hibs, Hearts, Dundee, Dundee United, Aberdeen, Motherwell and Kilmarnock.

Re: Scottish Footballers Roll of Honour

Another player who I don't think has been included is Bob Baxter of Raith Rovers. A half back, he made 50 appearances for the Kirkcaldy club between 1902 and 1908.
