THREE Celtic and Rangers players have been included in the World Soccer 500 'impact' list.

Annually, it looks at those within football who have made significant impacts throughout the year.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are all in the list, to the surprise of absolutely nobody.

But they are joined by SIX SPFL players, with three playing for Celtic, and the other three playing with Rangers

In the green corner, the feature includes Kyogo Furuhashi, Callum McGregor and David Turnbull.

For Steven Gerrard’s Gers, Glen Kamara, Ryan Kent and skipper James Tavernier all make the cut - with Alfredo Morelos perhaps surprsingly not inducted.

They aren’t the only Scots though, as Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney and Billy Gilmour are all in.

Ryan Gauld has been brilliant since his move to the MLS with Vancouver Whitecaps, and he finds a spot too.

Another Scottish link is Ali McCann. He was key in the historic double for St Johnstone last term, before earning a switch to Preston during the summer.
