Is anyone aware who the last part-time footballer was to be capped for Scotland?

Johnny Doyle's single cap for Scotland was in December 1975 when he played part-time for Ayr United and worked during the week as a clerk at British Steel's Clydesdale works in Bellshill. Have there been any others capped since then?

Jimmy Gilmour, Queen`s Park`s winger, made a substitute appearance for Scotland`s semi professional side vs. England on 4th June 1983; an amateur of course.

Was Alan Rough not a part-time player at Thistle?

I think Rough was the only full-time player at Thistle in the late 1970s although I don't imagine he was always full-time with them - not sure if he was still part-time when first capped in 1976
