2011 is almost done so we thought it was about time we picked the best ten goals we’ve seen all year. The criteria is simple, goals must be either scored by Scotsmen or scored in Scotland. Here are our picks, in no real order. Feel free to send us your suggestions below.
Dylan McGeough (Celtic) Vs St Mirren
Nobody had really heard of Dylan McGeogh, but he didn’t hang about before delivering what is probably the best solo goal of any SPL player in recent years. We’ll be keeping tabs on his progress very closely.
James Morrison (WBA) Vs Blackburn
Scotland midfielder Morrison pings a peachy long range volley past former England goalie Robinson.
Ryan Jack (Aberdeen) Vs St Johnstone
Just a month earlier Scotland U21 star Ryan Jack had scored a fantastic solo goal aginst Celtic. This bouncing long ranger against St Johnstone is very different, but all the more impressive considering the horrific weather conditions.
Chris Maguire (Scotland U21) Vs Iceland U21
The cocky Aberdeen (now Derby) striker was starting to make a real name for himself both with his club and country when he scored this goal at Easter Road. An audacious lob from the half way line, this is easily one of the most memorable scored in a dark blue top.
Darren Fletcher (Man Utd) Vs Man City
Sadly this brilliantly executed move and finish has been overshadowed by the tanking Utd took at the hands of their rivals. Well worth a watch.
Nikica Jelavic (Ranngers) Vs Aberdeen
As dangerous a striker as the SPL has seen in years, Jelavic pulls off a perfect overhead kick against a battling Dons side.
Kenny Miller (Scotland) Vs Cyprus
Seriously whaen did Kenny Miller become so good? This is possibly the best goal scored in a full international since McFadden against France.
Kris Commons (Celtic) Vs Kilmarnock
Commons burst onto the scene at Celtic at the tail end of last season, scoring a heap of important and not unimpressive goals. This is the pick of the bunch.
David Goodwillie (Dundee Utd) Vs Motherwell
A geniunely natural finisher, David Goodwillie showed a stack of EPL and Old Firm scouts just why he’s the most exciting young Scottish striker to have emerged in years.
Charlie Adam (Blackpool) Vs Blackburn
2011 was all about Charlie Adam, the midfielder took to the Premiership like a duck to water. This free kick against Blackburn looks almost effortless.
