Quiz: Name the football manager from their playing days

Can you match the manager with the fresh-faced youth during his playing days?

Former Hearts manager and current Celtic boss Neil Lennon both played in Scotland during their playing days

Today’s quiz is very straightforward. We have picked out 18 photos of managers from their playing days, and all you need to do is match the player with the gaffer.

A couple of points to make it easier: each individual has managed at least one club in Scotland since the year 2000 and all have been permanent positions – no caretaker bosses here.
