1. There's a different level of passion in Scotland.


Don't need to be a lip reader...

2. Even if the passion causes extreme physical pain.

4. Who else flies all the way to Brazil just to cheer on whoever's playing England?

"Good luck tonight, England, from everybody in Scotland."

7. Perseverance.

8. Humour.


9. Brutal humour.


10. More than can be said for many groups of fans.

11. Even when the chips are down.

What would have happened if Scotland had got to the World Cup final.

12. Even when it's not quite happening on the pitch.

Anyone who says there's no place for drugs in sport hasn't tried watching Scottish football sober

14. Even the mascots are on an altogether different level.

15. Down at grassroots level, the game is strong.

"Hi, it's the referee. Just to confirm I've inspected the pitch and the match will go ahead as planned."

We've all been there.

17. And even if it doesn't attract the Leo Messis and Cristiano Ronaldos of this world.

Partick Thistle could have been a little more specific with their new signing #transferdeadlineday

18. It might not be La Liga, but it's easily more entertaining.

19. The homemade banners are definitely better.

Hibernian fans respond to proposed plans for "facial recognition technology" to be used by Police at football games

21. Where else would you see a player sneak a teacake out of his pocket on the bench?
