I know this will raise many issues as to whether the revamped Glasgow Cup (or City of Glasgow Cup) is a "genuine" tournament, but ignoring those issues for the moment it won't have been missed that Danny Lennon made his Clyde debut v Celtic Colts aged approximately 50 1/2 years. He's very probably the oldest player to appear in a Bully Wee "first team", beating previous "holder" Mark McLaughlin by a fair number of years, but it got me wondering as to who was the (maybe previous) oldest player is Scottish senior football?

I can just visualise Alan Davies on QI ready to say "Ally McLeod"....alarm about to sound!

Those with a long memory will recall a previous thread on this very subject!

See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2571er

Ally MacLeod at 61 will take some beating, albeit in a reserve team.

Sorry "ScottishFA", I did do a search on "Oldest" but for whatever reason the previous didn't come up - admin feel free to merge these two if required.

As another footnote, Keith Knox tells me he made his debut for Creetown in the South of Scotland League when he was 53...still to be confirmed.

Cheers
