He used to run a pub called the Hurlet in Camelon near Falkirk, it used to have a framed Pele shirt on the wall which he was smart enough to swap after a Scotland v Brazil international.


Player Valuation: £70m
Was that the Newcastle left wing Jimmy Scott?
If so, his career ended with a very bad tackle at Palace in around August of 71.

Wing wizard Scott dies
Alex Scott helped Everton and Rangers to titles

Alex Scott helped Everton and Rangers to titles
Former Everton, Rangers, Hibernian, Falkirk and Scotland winger Alex Scott has died at the age of 64.
He passed away on Wednesday night after a short illness.
Scott helped Rangers to four Scottish league titles, the League Cup twice and the Scottish Cup before leaving for Everton, where he won English championship and FA Cup winners' medals.
He had succeeded the legendary Willie Waddell on Rangers' right wing but scored a hat-trick in his first match against hometown team Falkirk to instantly endear himself to the Ibrox faithful.
Scott had pace and strength, had the ability to produce a telling cross when it mattered and his 108 goals in 331 matches helped him pick up 16 international caps.
He found the net against Anderlecht and Red Star Belgrade as Rangers reached the semi-finals of the European Cup in 1959-60.
Shared Rangers record
His personal favourite came in a 3-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach the following season.
Scott added three others as Rangers reached the final of the Cup-winners' Cup, one coming as Fiorentina lifted the trophy with a 4-1 victory.
He shared the Rangers' record of 12 European goals with Ralph Brand and Jimmy Millar until Ally McCoist's exploits in 1996-97.
Scott lost his place at Ibrox to emerging teenager Willie Henderson and that led to his £39,000 move to Everton in 1962.
Yet he was still picked for Scotland while in Rangers' reserves and was part of the Scotland team that ended a 25-year barren spell of victories at Hampden against England.
He returned north of the Border from Everton in 1967, when he signed for Hibs and later went on to play for Falkirk.
After retiring from football, Scott went into business with his younger brother, James, who played for Hibs, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Falkirk.

Think he had that nickname before he came to us. Apparently the Rangers fans thought he looked like a Mexican and he did not like the nickname. That’s what I was told back in the 60’s anyhow.
