Scottish Football Answers to Questions

Reading Jim Bett's entry on wikipedia yesterday, I learnt that his sons Baldur and Calum won representative honours for Iceland U-19s. I immediately thought of Barney Battles Sr. and Barney Battles Jr., the latter a Scotland and USA cap. Are there other examples of players playing for Scotland whose son played for another country? I feel there are likely to be, with the United States, Canada, Australia and South Africa perhaps the most likely receptor countries, but I can't think of any players. Can anybody help?

Hibs player And Scotland international Jimmy McGhee's son - Bart McGhee - played for the USA at the 1930 world cup.
It's the Hope I can't stand
It's not quite an answer to this question, but the Brown family should certainly be mentioned here. Jim (scored for USA in 1930 World Cup semi-final) was a brother of Jock (Scotland); Jim's son George also played for the USA, whilst Jock's sons Peter and Gordon both played rugby for Scotland.
Bryan Gunn's son Angus is in the England U16 squad...
