Magic Number #15

We take a look at five players who have worn the #15 shirt during their time in Scottish football and ask the question - where are they now?

This week we will be focusing on five players who have worn the number 15 jersey during their time in Scottish football. 
The question is - do you remember them and where are they now?
Juho Makela (Heart of Midlothian)
The Finnish forward arrived at Tynecastle during the January transfer window of 2006. He spent three years with the Jambos, scoring only two league goals. During his time with the Gorgie side, Makela spent two short stints out on loan at FC Thun and HJK Helsinki.
Since leaving Hearts, Makela has spent time at numerous clubs around Europe as well as a short spell with Sydney FC in Australia. He has eight international caps for Finland and now plies his trade in his home nation at HIFK Fotboll.
Alan Gow (Rangers)
Gow made a name for himself at Airdrie United and Falkirk before being snapped up by the Gers on a pre-contract agreement in 2007. He made a handful of appearances for the Ibrox club and was sent out on loan on two occasions before being signed on a permanent deal by Plymouth Argyle in 2009.
The forward spent the 2011/12 season playing for East Bengal in India, before returning to the UK to sign for Exeter City. After a couple of seasons at St James Park, Gow came back to Scotland, appearing for Hibernian, Motherwell and St Mirren, before retiring in 2016.
Karim Touzani (Aberdeen)
The Dutch midfielder came through the youth system at Ajax and moved to Utrecht in 1999. He signed for FC Twente in 2004. Touzani notched up just shy of 90 Eredivisie appearances before moving to the Dons in 2006.
Touzani spent two seasons at Pittodrie, making 25 league appearances and scoring once. He left Aberdeen for Sparta Rotterdam in 2008 where he retired three years later.
Milan Misun (Celtic)
Misun was handed the number 15 shirt upon his arrival to Parkhead in 2009. The signing of the Czech defender was seen to be quite a coup for Celtic given that AC Milan and Copenhagen were also vying for his signature at the time. However, during his three-year spell in Glasgow, Misun failed to make a single first-team appearance in a competitive game.
He left the club to sign for Viktoria Plzen in his native Czech Republic in 2012 and now plays for FC Vysonica Jihlava in the Czech top flight.
Aaron Mooy (St Mirren)
The Sydney-born midfielder joined the Buddies as a free agent in October 2010, having rejected a contract extension at Bolton Wanderers. Mooy impressed during his time at the club and made over 20 league appearances during his two-year stay in Paisley. He left the club to move back to his native Australia in 2012, being unveiled as one of the inaugural signings for the newly-formed A League club, Western Sydney Wanderers.
Mooy moved on to Melbourne City in 2014 and his impressive displays for the club earned him a transfer to Melbourne’s sister club, Manchester City in the 2016 summer window. The midfielder is currently out on loan at English Championship side, Huddersfield Town.
