Northern Ireland Players in the SPL (1998/99-2012/13)

The Scottish Football League Premier Division evolved into the Scottish Premier League (SPL) in 1998 following a similar model to the  English  Premier League, with the aim of allowing member clubs to take more control over TV rights and other revenue streams. It ran under the sponsored titles of the  Bank of Scotland Premier League until 2007, then the  Clydesdale Bank Premier League until 2013. The SPL was replaced by the Scottish Professional Football League Premiership when the two Scottish league re-amalgamated.  As throughout the history of Scottish football, the SPL has been dominated by the  Old Firm , Celtic and Rangers sharing all the titles between them. The following Northern Ireland Full, B, Under-21 and representative players have featured in the SPL between the inaugural 1998/99 season and the final season in 2012/13. -  A-H  -  I-L  -  M  -  N-Z  - All-Time XI - Scottish Premiership - Records: Most appearances:   Stephen Craigan   (Motherwell & Partick Thi
