Scottish football may not enjoy the best reputation across Europe but one thing few fans of the sport can deny is that the small nation still continues to produce excellent, young players.
Whether it be Billy Gimour, John McGinn or Andy Robertson, the Scottish leagues have proved to be an excellent breeding ground for well-rounded and talented individuals to learn their trade before applying it at a higher level.
In the case of Aberdeen defender Calvin Ramsay, it seems as though the Scottish Premiership may have its next young star.
What position does Ramsay play in?
Whether playing for the Scotland national team youth sides or his hometown club, Ramsay has always been a right-sided full-back that can play as a wing-back in certain systems.

How good is Ramsay?
Ramsay broke onto the scene in Scottish football towards the end of last season, when the defender was given a handful of starts in the Scottish Premiership split and in Aberdeen’s Scottish Cup run.
That was seemingly enough for new manager Stephen Glass to promote Ramsay to the first team as a regular starter and as such the young Scot has been an ever-present member of the Dons starting XI in European qualifiers and the Premiership this season.
The young full-back clearly thrives when give space to run into with and without the ball, which is shown by the six assists he’s provided in just 14 games this season. Whether as full-back or a more advanced wing-back, Ramsay is more than enough in the engine to trouble most teams.
What clubs are interested in Ramsay?
While young talents in the Scottish game are often scooped up by Celtic or Rangers, there’s every chance that this defender could make a direct route south of the border, if recent reports are to be believed.

Whether the Premier League giants are serious about signing the young talent remains to be seen.
