If you haven’t been keeping up to date with the Global Domination that Sorare appear to be continuing, you may have missed the news that the Scottish Premier League have joined forces and will be producing NFT’s in partnership with Sorare.
This is a collaboration that has excited many current players on the platform, specifically the players that are from Scotland. In addition to being able to watch their teams and collect their favourite players, Scottish players will be able to use their extensive knowledge of their clubs youth setups in order to purchase the best wonderkids from the Scottish Premiership.
With the aim of saving you time and giving you fast access to a scouting report, we have found 5 players that you could use as a base team, with all of the players from the SPFL.
I will admit, I expect quite a few Celtic stacks to be deployed next season, but there’s a few other picks in mind that I have. It would almost be too simple to pick Joe Hart, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Jota and so on. However, I’ve got to admit that Jota will feature in my recommendations. His season-long averages are nothing short of elite.
I will also advise that you don’t look past Rangers, as there are multiple exciting prospects in this team. When Sorare can resolve the commercial rights with this one, they’d be another top stack team.
So let’s get into this article and show you the 5 players that I’m excited to watch on Sorare.
Calvin Ramsay – Defender (Right Back)
At just 18 years old, Ramsay carries quite a lot of utility. He’s a great option if you’re looking for an U23 Prospect. 12 months ago, you’d have been able to pick him up for a steal (if he was on the platform), but demand will be considerably higher now that Leeds United and Liverpool have been making their enquiries.
He’s an attacking right back, who has become a guaranteed starter for Aberdeen. With the potential of him getting assists, he will become a valuable asset in your gallery. He should only improve as he gains more experience.
I’d consider monitoring the transfer rumours over the summer. It’s no use for Sorare players if Ramsay becomes Alexander-Arnold’s understudy, as we need him playing in order to capitalise in Sorare tournaments.
He’s definitely one to watch, and if he stays at Aberdeen or gets a Loan back after a transfer, he’d be one of my top picks.
James Tavernier – Defender (Right Back)
I have to start with a disclaimer here that Rangers aren’t on the platform yet, but I anticipate that there will be already be managers circling, waiting for his arrival.
Another right back, Tavernier is experienced. At 30 years old, you’d be buying him for his current contributions. In many ways, my first pick Calvin Ramsay is the exact opposite, and managers would hope that Ramsay could develop into the next Tavernier.
In 57 appearances, Tavernier has 17 goals and 19 assists. These stats are outrageous when you consider that he’s a right back. With all scoring considered, it translates to an average of 65 over his Last 40 games. This puts Tavernier in the same region as Jurrien Timber, Dayot Upamecano and Nico Schlotterbeck.
Unfortunately, he’s not on the platform yet, but we have optimism that it shouldn’t take too long to see him.
He’d be a great addition to your gallery, but as he’s 30 Years Old he would be seen as a short term solution, rather than a prospect.
Jota, or Joao Filipe is another phenomenon from the Scottish Premiership. Celtic orginally snapped him up on loan, and he hit the ground running.
Ending the season with 27 goal contributions in 40 appearances, he was joint 2nd for Sorare average scores in the Scottish Premiership. His Sorare stats placed him as the 4th best forward on the platform, the 16th best overall.
In contrast, Lionel Messi was the 7th best forward.
The Summer Transfer window will be make or break for Jota, as he really needs to continue at Celtic to continue this fine form. He’s not officially a Celtic player just yet, but it’s widely rumoured that he will join them for £6.3m. This is a bargain for a player of Jota’s ability, but managers will be hoping that he can continue this form in the 2022/23 campaign too.
Lewis Ferguson (Midfielder)
We travel back to Aberdeen and find Lewis Ferguson, the 22 year old central midfielder that’s showing everything that you’d expect from a Sorare card.
He’s easily capabe of hitting 70+ scores, having done so 11 times in the last year. If you consider the fact that Aberdeen finished in 10th place, that’s impressive stuff.
Aberdeen didn’t have the best of seasons, narrowly missing out on relegation. The fact that Ferguson can post scores like this, only makes me wonder what he could do in a better squad. Will Aberdeen recruit?
Even more interestingly, I’d love to see how he performed at the spine of a team like Rangers. With Scott Arfield getting closer to retirement, he’d be a perfect fit. The only issue that we have here, is the intense rivalry between the two teams.
Liel Abada (Forward)
The final selection that we have today is Liel Abada. He’s a tricky Israeli forward that can be deployed from Centre Forward, although he is more used to playing on the Right Wing. In 32 appearances, he has scored 10 goals and assisted 7 times. These stats look good, but the fact that he only completed 90 minutes on 11 occassions shows that it could be even higher. Towards the end of the season, Liel did get rotated more, but this was down to the form of Jota, Maeda Furuhashi and Giakoumakis.
Abada is the younger of the Celtic attackers, and he’s still developing. His scores are a little bit hit and miss at present, but I’m sure this is down to his limited game-time. His Stats show that he’s a force to be reckoned with, he just needs a few more 90 minutes under his belt.
He was purchased for £3 million, which was a bargain for Celtic. You can grab the Abada limited card for a little over £60, which is a good price for a top prospect.
Sorare Scotland: Conclusion
I hope that this article has provided some value for your scouting in the Scottish League on Sorare. I wanted to avoid just going with a full Celtic stack, and decided to speculate upon a few players that aren’t actually on the platform yet. The addition of the Scottish Premiership to Sorare is a welcome one in my opinion.
I don’t watch the Scottish matches myself, but with each league that joins the platform, I find myself a new team to follow!
