Happy Birthday to Gary McSwegan who will turn 46 today. Gary gained two caps for Scotland both coming during his time with Hearts. He would come on as a late late substitute i.e. 89th minute against Bosnia and Herzegovina in October ’99 but would be given a starting place four days later as Scotland faced Lithuania also at Hampden. McSwegan would score in the second half to give Scotland a two nil lead following Don Hutchison’s earlier goal. Colin Cameron would round up the scoring as the Scots won 3-0.
It may not be the most noteworthy of Scotland careers but I’m sure Gary treasures his Scotland goal as you can see by the photo how much it meant to him at the time.
Happy Birthday Gary
