After Iain Russell's stunning strike for Airdrieonians against Albion Rovers, we'll be throwing back to some of the best volleys scored in Scottish football's recent history!

Tam McManus vs Rangers (August 2003)

Despite Hibernian eventually succumbing to a 5-2 defeat at Ibrox, Tam McManus stole the show with an incredible first-half volley.

Brian Easton vs Aberdeen (October 2015)

St. Johnstone simply blew the Dons away at Pittodrie in October ’15 – the Saintees running out 5-1 winners. Left-back Brian Easton scored the best of the bunch with a thumping long-range volley.

Sean Dickson vs Arbroath (November 2016)

This one was only a couple of months ago but worthy of being shown time and time again! Stirling Albion looked down and out against the Red Lichties until Sean Dickson showed stunning technique to blast in a stoppage-time equaliser for the Binos.

Stephen Husband vs Arbroath (March 2014)

The Pars midfielder opened the scoring in a 3-0 victory over Arbroath in sensational fashion! As the ball dropped to him following a corner kick, he angled a full volley into the far top corner.

Craig Slater vs Inverness CT (January 2016)

As the snow fell at a freezing Rugby Park, Craig Slater melted a raking volley in off the crossbar to secure victory for the Ayrshire men over Caley Thistle.

Jason Holt vs Ross County (April 2013)

A fantastic high-scoring match between the Jambos and Ross County ended 4-2 to the home side – Jason Holt’s second-half volley was the pick of the bunch! The ball fell on to his weaker foot but it made no difference as he found the bottom corner.

Andrei Kanchelskis vs Dunfermline (February 1999)

“Oh golly, what a volley!”. Kanchelskis ripped a wonderful volley into the Dunfermline net as Rangers ran out comfortable 3-0 winners back in early 1999.

Alan Thompson vs Dunfermline (December 2001)

The English midfielder showed off his incredible left foot with this long-range scorcher as Celtic defeated the Pars 4-0 at East End Park in 2001.

Jim Hamilton vs Celtic (January 2006)

Motherwell ended up losing the game 3-1, but Jim Hamilton would go on to win the SPL Goal of the Decade with his unbelievable volley from the edge of the box.
