Who are the best and worst players in the Scottish Premier League?
Well, according to the new TalentSpotter website, Dundee United have 4 of the worst overall players in the division - Garry Kenneth, Darren Dods, Daniel Grainger and Mihael Kovacevic.
TalentSpotter is an interactive website, developed by the publishers of FourFourTwo magazine, which allows football supporters to rate professional footballers on things like passing, tackling, shooting, pace and work-rate .
In the 'Hot Lists' section, you can see the top 50 players in a variety of categories, but its Dundee United's defence which is currently dominating the 'Worst Players Overall' section for the SPL.
Darren Dods might not be the quickest player in the SPL, but his partnership with Lee Wilkie managed to maintain a good defensive record last season.
While Garry Kenneth, Danny Grainger and Mihael Kovacevic might be fringe players at Tannadice, but there must be far worse defenders at Saint Mirren, Hamilton and Falkirk.
However, there are some even more surprising results, with Hamilton Accies currently lead the division as the best overall side and Motherwell rated as the worst.
Although, having the best rated goalkeeper and being the best at tackling, still didn't help Rangers progress to the next stage of the Champions League on Tuesday night!
SPL Worst Players: Overall
1. Trevor Molloy, Motherwell (1.0 out of 10)
2. Garry Kenneth, Dundee United (2.5 out of 10)
3. Mihael Kovacevic, Dundee United (2.5 out of 10)
4. Darren Dods, Dundee United (2.5 out of 10)
5. Daniel Grainger, Dundee United (2.5 out of 10)
6. Christian Nade, Hearts (4.0 out of 10)
7. James O'Brien, Celtic (4.0 out of 10)
8. Massimo Donati, Celtic (4.2 out of 10)
9. Michael McGovern, Celtic (4.2 out of 10)
10. Mark Archdeacon, Motherwell (4.2 out of 10)
The results might be unrealistic at the moment, but that's because not enough Dundee United supporters have been rating the squad.
Once Arabs start entering their own opinions on Craig Levein's players, and the opposition teams, then we will see which club dominates the 'Worst Players' list - but there's no reason why it should be Dundee United... or is there???
