Scottish football may be a bag of crap. That doesn't mean ALL player in the league are rubbish and incapable of making it on a larger stage.
McFadden is a solid Premiership player. He wasn't right for Everton, but Premier league class he is none the less.
Barry Ferguson was a massive flop at Blackburn, correct. But I'm sure he's back in the Premiership at the moment. Playing for a team sitting in sixth? No?
Giovanni van Bronckhorst a massive flop? The same player that went on to make over 100 appearances for Barcelona? Proper shit him. The fact he failed at Arsenal was down to a cruciate knee ligament injury. And the embarassment of talent Arsenal had in their midfield at the time (when he returned from injury).
Laudrup. Again another player ravaged by injury following his move south. The poorer brother of Michael, I doubt anyone ever epected a World beater. If they did, more fool them.
As for the Duncan comment. Well, I'd expect nothing less from you.
Arteta maybe Spanish, and may have come from a Spanish club to Everton. A club where he warmed the bench after leaving Rangers, a club you could say he flopped at. The fact of the matter he did grace Scottish football. Thus proving that all who play north of the border are not shit.
Larsson. A World class striker who spent most of his career with Celtic. Does that make him any less of a player?
Scottish football does not have the depth of talent as some of the larger European leagues. But it does have it's rough diamonds.
