I feel a campaign :)

Scottish/London Hearts could you be so kind as to produce a list of players who suffered in the same way as Stewart Imlach and Eddie Turnbull?

The assumption has to be that players who didn't feature in the Home Internationals didn't receive caps. The article says this persisted until the 1970s. However there's no definitive date given. Erring on the side of caution and taking it up until the end of the home series in 1984 these players would be affected by this policy. It's a surprisingly long list and trawled through by hand so there may be mistakes.. Please point out any omissions or errors.

John Aird, Thomson Allan, John Anderson, Hugh Baird, Willie Bell, Andy Black, Adam Blacklaw, Jimmy Bone, Bill Boyd, Des Bremner, Jim Brown, Robert Bruce, Peter Buchanan, Francis Burns, Willie Callaghan, Robert Campbell, Alfie Conn Sr, Eddie Connachan, George Connelly, John Connolly, Robert Connor, Joe Craig, Tommy Craig, Alex Cropley, Michael Cullen, Ally Dawson, 'Dixie' Deans, Bobby Dougan, Johnny Doyle, David Duncan, Bobby Flavell, Doug Fraser, Tommy Gemmell (of St Mirren, not Celtic), Ronnie Glavin, Willie Hamilton, John Hansen, Joe Harper, Bobby Hogg, Davie Holt, Bobby Hope, Stewart Houston, Robert Howe, Billy Hughes, Wilson Humphries, Stewart Imlach, Billy Imrie, Leslie Johnston, Robert Johnston, Hugh Kelly, Andy Kerr, Davie Kinnear, Danny Liddle, John Little, Andrew Love, Davie McCrae, Alex McDonald, Jimmy McDougall, Willie McFarlane, Ernie McGarr, Bobby McKean, Thomas McKillop, George McLean, Neil Martin, David Mathers, Jimmy Millar, Bobby Mitchell, Neilly Mochan, Hugh Morton, Frank Murphy, Stevie Murray, James Nisbet, Duncan Ogilvie, James Paterson, Andy Paton, Andy Penman, David Provan (of Rangers, not Celtic), Robert Rankin, Billy Ritchie, Archie Robertson, George Robertson, Hugh Robertson, Jimmy Robertson (of Dundee, not Spurs), Eddie Rutherford, Jim Scott, Jocky Scott, Jackie Sinclair, Dave Smith, Eric Smith, David Stewart, Jim Stewart, Scot Symon, Charlie Thomson, Billy Thomson, Eddie Turnbull, George Walker, Philip Watson, Bobby Watson, William Waugh, Alex Wilson, Paul Wilson, Bob Wilson
