Best league crowds outside the top division and ranking (excludes clubs whose existing record/joint record is outside the top division and also clubs that have never played below top level). There are two figures for Dunfermline as they were not a top flight side at the time of their play-off v Aberdeen in 1995 but their opponents were. So I include this as well as their highest figure for a league match entirely outside the top flight. All figures were recorded in the second level (Division Two, B Division, 1st Division) except Gretna’s which was at the third level (2nd Division).

League attendance lows. I only include matches for which I have a figure. I make no assumptions about games with no recorded attendance. As a consequence many former clubs have a lower number of poor attendances than is probably the case. Therefore I have listed clubs alphabetically as there is no proper way to rank them. Renton have fewer sub-5,000 crowds than Rangers, Peterhead less than Hibs but by no stretch of the imagination could they be said to be better supported clubs. It is simply that Renton departed league football in 1897 and Peterhead didn’t join until 2000 that provides such distortions. There are many others. Still, it does give some indication as to support levels for those clubs which have been in league football a long time.

In this instance -5,000 represents 4,999 and under

* indicates every league match or every league match for which I have a figure is below 5,000

Final note on all the above. Information is from fully completed league seasons only 1890-2010. The C Division is excluded as are games completed but later expunged from the records such as the matches played in 1939-40, Bathgate, Armadale & Bo'ness matches in the seasons when those clubs failed to fulfil their fixtures and Renton's games in 1890-91.. I have also excluded matches designated as being played at neutral venues such as pre-WW1 championship and re-election deciders.

Where information is available Third Division (1923-26) matches have been included except for those later expunged.

Excellent data there

Whilst the 83,500 is recorded in some publications for the Celtic v Rangers game on 1st January 1938, I've only ever seen 60,000 recorded for the game v Rangers on 20th September 1930 although at least one Rangers record book has 70,000

Any reason for the difference?

I've received other queries about some figures so I compared my most recent to the oldest I have (unfortunately the original handwritten ones were lost years ago) so I can see that until about six or seven years ago there was a figure of 60,000 for this match.

It's impossible to say why I amended any particular figure out of thousands but my general rule with estimated attendances is to take the figure which appears in most sources. I wouldn't have changed 60,000 to 83,500 unless I'd seen that figure in more places than the original.

I must admit it struck me when I was compiling the lists on here as it suggests two matches hold the club and ground record for Celtic Park. Though without further evidence I'd be inclined to still regard the 1938 game as the record holder as we know on that occasion the gates were locked with some 10,000 outside.

Terrific compilation, thanks a lot.

I'd have just three remarks:

Peterhead - The attendance for the Div 1 Play-Off Semi Final vs Morton (6/5/2006) was 3,717 (according to Rothmans)

Stranraer vs Morton 30/4/2005: 2,778 (Rothmans and League Review)

Celtic vs Rangers 27/12/99: 59,619 (Rothmans)

I, of course, do not know what the most reliable source is...

Excellent stuff, thanks for all the stats.

The only query I would make is, why do you discount the oft-quoted 45,061 for Aberdeen v Hearts?
