The players to win every domestic trophy in England and Scotland

Just three players have ever claimed a clean sweep of domestic trophies in England and Scotland, an exclusive group to have won it all on either side of the border.

One of those, Joe Hart, announced last week that he is to retire at the end of the season with the former England number one to leave Celtic and hang up his gloves in the summer.

Following the 36-year-old’s announcement of his impending retirement, we’ve looked at the three players to have won a league title and both domestic cups in England and Scotland.

The players to win every domestic trophy in England and Scotland:

Kenny Dalglish

Arguably Scotland and Liverpool’s greatest-ever player, Kenny Dalglish conquered both nations during a decorated career in British football.

Dalglish starred during a successful era for Celtic in the early seventies, as he claimed four Scottish titles, four Scottish Cups and the 1974/75 Scottish League Cup. The forward scored 173 goals in 338 games for the Bhoys, performances which earned interest from Liverpool.

The Reds signed Dalglish in a British record £440,000 deal in 1977, with the Scot given the unenviable task of replacing Kevin Keegan at Anfield. Dalglish did just that, eclipsing even Keegan’s achievements during an incredible career on Merseyside.

He won six league titles, five domestic cups and three European Cups with the Reds, scored 172 goals, and earned the nickname King Kenny on The Kop. He later had two spells as manager of Liverpool, leading the side to six major trophies.

Regarded as arguably the club’s finest footballer, he is regarded as one of British football’s all-time greats and holds the Scotland national team records for most caps (102) and goals (30 – level with Denis Law).

Andrei Kanchelskis

Andrei Kanchelskis arrived at Manchester United as an unknown in the early nineties, a signing from Shakhtar Donetsk who soon made his presence felt. The fleet-footed winger tormented Premier League full-backs for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, with his dazzling feet deceiving opposition defenders during a memorable period at Old Trafford.

The Russian won league titles in 1993 and 1994 as the Red Devils began the Premier League era with a bang, and also collected winner’s medals in the League Cup (1992) and FA Cup (1994).

He famously scored a hat-trick against Manchester City in a derby demolition of the club’s cross-town neighbours, but a fall-out with Ferguson and the emergence of David Beckham saw Kanchelskis surprisingly sold.

Short stints at Everton and Fiorentina followed before the winger returned to British football to sign for Rangers in 1998. He made 113 appearances across four seasons at Ibrox and won six trophies, including a Scottish treble during the 1998/99 campaign.

Joe Hart

Joe Hart became the third footballer to complete the set in England and Scotland, after forming part of the Celtic team that won a Scottish treble in 2022/23.

Hart first emerged as a top-level goalkeeper at Manchester City, who he had joined from Shrewsbury Town as a teenager. A fixture in the side during the first successes of the Sheikh Mansour era at the Etihad, he made 348 appearances for the Citizens and cemented his role as England’s number one.

Hart helped Manchester City to a first trophy in 35 years with FA Cup success in 2011, before a maiden Premier League title arrived the following season. He ended his time with the club having won a record four Premier League Golden Gloves and five major trophies, including each available domestic honour in English football.

A mixed period followed during spells at Torino (loan), West Ham, Burnley and Tottenham, before Celtic signed the shot-stopper as an experienced option in 2021. The veteran’s renaissance has seen him play 139 times to date and win five trophies, including back-to-back Scottish Premiership titles.
