Longest gap between playing top flight games

Post by football2011 » Wed Apr 02, 2014 9:34 pm

Paul Mathers was on the bench for St Mirren last Saturday and had he came on, he would have been playing in Scotland's top division for the first time in 20 years. Does anyone what the current record is for the longest period in between top flight appearances for a player? I have Bobby Collins as a possibility for his 11 years from leaving Celtic in 1958 to joining Morton in 1969.
