Sheffield United endured a disappointing season last time out as they were relegated from the Premier League without putting up much of a fight.
When you combine the dismal start they’ve had under Slavisa Jokanovic, it’s fair to say it’s been a tough 18 months for all Blades supporters. However, many will remember just how far the club have come.
They will recall that the side were stuck in League One for longer than they expected to be in the not too distant past. And, one player who featured regularly during those third tier days was Stefan Scougall.
The creative midfielder arrived with a good reputation and it was hoped that he could inspire the team to promotion.
And, whilst he wasn’t exactly key, as most of his appearances came from the bench, Scougall did play his part as Chris Wilder’s side won League One in 2017.
That was a pleasing end to what had been a frustrating few years for the Scotsman in Yorkshire, where he showed flashes of his talent but wasn’t always consistent.
Are these 22 Sheffield United stats real or fake?
Following promotion, Wilder would allow the player to move back to his home country, as he signed for St. Johnstone.
He would spent just a season with the club before going to Carlisle, who were in League Two. Once again, Scougall didn’t really shine, before he went back to Scotland, this time in the Championship with Alloa.
The previous campaign was a very disappointment one for all connected to the club as they were relegated, so the 28-year-old is now playing in the third tier, where he is doing well.
So, even though he remains in the game, Scougall’s career hasn’t played out how he would’ve hoped as he has failed to kick-on from the exciting talent that arrived at Sheffield United.
