NOW YOU KNOW: Faddy's still in frame for Scots' honour roll

SCOTTISH football's Roll of Honour for players with 50-plus caps contains the game's legends such as Kenny Dalglish and Danny McGrain.

Heroes such as current international manager Gordon Strachan also feature on the list and he hit the half-century mark during his Scotland career.

FADSTER (East End) - Have any players finished up on 49 caps and just missed out?

No player has ever finished on 49 caps but a few have came exceedingly close without making it with John Greig on 44, Barry Ferguson (45), Gary Naysmith and Craig Burley (46) and Bobby Evans (48).

James McFadden also sits on 48 caps and may have thought his chance was gone but, after a terrific spell at Motherwell recently, the 30-year-old might just get his name on the Roll of Honour and his portrait hung in Hampden yet.

Grant (Barrhead) - The draw for the Scottish Junior Cup prompted a discussion about Arthurlie's cup runs in the past. An older fan in our group reminisced about the cup final team of 1946 and an inside-forward called Joe Johnson in particular who signed for Rangers. Do you have details of his career at Rangers?

Joe Johnson was inside-right in the Arthurlie team that lost 2-0 in the 1946 Scottish Junior Cup final against Fauldhouse United and joined Rangers the following season.

Probably the highlight of his Ibrox career was playing in, and scoring, in a 3-0 League Cup semi-final victory against Celtic at Hampden in October 1951, being brought in by Bill Struth after missing the sectional matches.

However, history repeated itself and he again collected a runner-up medal when Rangers lost 3-2 to Dundee in the final. Joe turned out in nine league matches that season 1951/52, scoring three goals.

Joe left Ibrox in 1952 and joined Lincoln City for a season before moving to Workington. From there he returned to Scotland with Elgin City.

R McLean (Lanark) - I know that Celtic and Manchester United legend Jimmy Delaney's grandson was John Kennedy, who also played for Celtic and had his career ended by a serious injury while playing for Scotland. I am sure that I can remember that Jimmy also had a son who played professional football?

Jimmy's son Pat joined Motherwell from Junior side Douglas Water Thistle in 1958 as an 18-year-old and remained at Fir Park until 1966.

Well sold Pat to Dunfermline and he spent two seasons with the Pars before joining Clyde. He also had spells at Airdrie, Clydebank and Albion Rovers before retiring at the end of the 1973/74 season.
