Goals scored from set-pieces: The 12 Scottish Premiership clubs ranked in order

This list ranks the Scottish top flight teams in order of combined goals and free-kicks scored. Those who class penalties and throw-ins as “set-pieces” are wrong-uns, so keep that in mind when digesting the following information.

Other points of contention: goals were not classed as having come from a set-piece if it occurred in the second wave. For instance, if a corner is initially cleared and the ball is returned to the box a second time before going in, that doesn’t count. Meanwhile, tie-breakers have been decided in favour of those with a higher percentage of their total goals scored from set-pieces.

From corners (6), indirect free-kicks (1), direct free-kicks (2). Percentage of all goals (24).
