The Scottish Premiership all time top scorers are a bonafide league of legends, each of who has etched their names into the history books - be that from the old guard now retired, to those still playing the game today (and, of course, adding to those numbers week-to-week).  

As such, the following top 20 list includes contributions spanning over 25 years (when Scotland's top tier was rebranded) from the late 1990s all the way through to the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership campaign today.

Of course, many of the players listed below scored many more goals for their clubs across all competitions – these totals are specific to domestic league competition.

And so from Kris Boyd to Celtic greats Henrik Larsson, Leigh Griffiths, John Hartson and more, here are the top 20 Scottish Premiership all time top scorers.
