Over the course of December, we asked our readers on Twitter to cast their vote on who should feature in our Premiership Team of the Decade.
Many a star has come and gone from Scottish football in that time. From the weird to the wonderful, many have made their mark, some more than others.
Here’s who Twitter voted into our Premiership decade XI.
GK- Joe Lewis (Aberdeen, 58%)
Beating the likes of Jon McLaughlin and Darren Randolph, Lewis is our goalkeeper. The Dons captain has been brilliant over the last decade for Aberdeen, making well over 100 appearances since his arrival in 2016.
He’s now leading Aberdeen into the new decade on the pitch.
David Gray (Hibs, 32%)
Edging Edinburgh rival Callum Patterson by just 1%, Hibs’ Gray is in at right-back. He’s been nothing short of exceptional since arriving at Hibs in 2014, leading them to Championship glory and most notably their first Scottish Cup since 1902 in 2016.
Mark Reynolds (Aberdeen, 46%)
Another landslide victory, another Don. Reynolds was voted into our XI after some exceptional form for Aberdeen over a period of the decade. He helped them win the League Cup in 2014 and formed a great partnership with Russell Anderson in defence.
Andy Considine (Aberdeen, 56%)
There’s an Aberdeen theme running through this side so far. A stalwart for the Dons, 500 appearances at Pittodrie since his professional debut in 2004 tells you all you need to know about why Considine is in this XI.
They don’t make a lot like him anymore.
Andy Robertson (Dundee United, 45%)
Even the likes of Lewis Stevenson and Graeme Shinnie couldn’t edge Liverpool’s world-class full-back off this list. Robertson has his place in this team after some good form for United earlier this decade.
He’s managed to do ok for himself since moving south.
Kenny McLean (Aberdeen/St Mirren, 62%)
Yet another whopping victory for someone who’s spent time at Pittodrie, McLean is our first midfielder. He shone for St Mirren before reaching great heights at Aberdeen. He’s currently in the EPL with Norwich City.
Stuart Armstrong (Dundee United, 60%)
Armstrong was part of a brilliant United team that included the likes of Gary-Mackay Steven and Nadir Ciftci. He’s made himself a regular south of the border with Southampton following a spell with Celtic.
He first made his name though at Tannadice.
John McGinn (Hibs/St Mirren, 50%)
St Mirren like making some good midfielders don’t they? McGinn’s the second Buddies academy graduate in this XI after winning the League Cup in Paisley.
He also made himself a Hibs hero, endearing fans with his energetic performances and taking in a Scottish Cup medal. Arguably the national team’s best player right now.
Michael Higdon (Motherwell, 38%)
Sneaking in ahead of Kilmarnock’s Kris Boyd with a 2% margin, the 2012/13 Player of the Year winner takes his place in our front three. He scored 43 in 83 appearances during a golden period for the Steelmen.
Adam Rooney (Aberdeen, 71%)
A fifth Aberdeen man and the biggest winner in any of our polls, Rooney is the second forward on our list. He banged in 97 goals in just under 200 games during a fruitful spell at Pittodrie.
Gary Mackay-Steven (Dundee United/Aberdeen, 58%)
Completing our XI, Mackay-Steven thrived at Tannadice, making over 100 appearances, before making a move to Celtic in 2015. 2017 brought him to Aberdeen, where he was a pretty decent winger over his two-year stint.
