We are opening up this search to our readers, rather than forcing our top ten on you. So we would like you to send in your top ten Scottish players who you believe should be on the list for 2012.
No matter where the player is based, as long as he is Scottish or has played for Scotland then he or she is eligible. Yes, I said she. The nominations are open to both male and female Scottish football players.
There are a number of ways to post your nominations. You can tweet us @scotzine, email to email@example.com or take our survey by clicking on the link below:
The nominations received will see a list of players selected depending on the number of nominations they receive and then from that list we would open the voting to you the reader, to see which rank the player comes in at. The player with the most votes is ranked number one, the player with the least is ranked number ten.
Nominate your top ten young Scottish footballers now. The voting is open until the end of February, however we shall be publishing articles over the coming days and weeks on which players the fraternity of bloggers and journalists think should be watched.
