Henrik Larsson scored a record 12 Scottish Premier League hat-tricks, for Celtic.

The Scottish Premier League (SPL) was a football league competition that operated between 1998 and 2013.[a] During that period, more than 100 players scored three goals (a hat-trick) or more in a single match. The first player to achieve the feat was Craig Burley, who scored three times for Celtic in a 5–0 victory against Dunfermline Athletic on the opening day of the first SPL season.[1] Eight players scored more than three goals in a match; of these, three players, Kris Boyd (twice), Gary Hooper and Kenny Miller scored five.[2]

Three matches featured two hat-tricks in the same game. The first two came in the same week of the 1999–2000 season. Henrik Larsson and Mark Viduka both scored three goals each in Celtic's 7–0 win against Aberdeen on 16 October 1999,[3] then Aberdeen's Robbie Winters and Motherwell's John Spencer both scored hat-tricks in a 6–5 win for Aberdeen at Fir Park four days later.[4] Gary Hooper and Anthony Stokes both scored hat-tricks in Celtic's league record 9–0 win against Aberdeen on 6 November 2010.[5] Larsson and Stokes are the only players who have scored hat-tricks in consecutive matches.[2]

Henrik Larsson scored three or more goals twelve times in the Scottish Premier League, more than any other player.[2] Larsson, Boyd, John Hartson, Michael Higdon and Stokes were the only players to have scored more than three hat-tricks in the SPL. Five players scored hat-tricks for two different clubs: Boyd (Kilmarnock and Rangers), Higdon (St. Mirren and Motherwell), Gary McSwegan (Heart of Midlothian and Kilmarnock), Colin Nish (Kilmarnock and Hibernian) and Stokes (Falkirk and Celtic).

Hat-tricks[edit]

Mark Viduka scored a hat-trick for Celtic against Kilmarnock on 30 October 1999.[6] All three goals were scored in the space of four minutes, making it one of the fastest hat-tricks on record.[6]
Ivan Sproule scored all three goals in a 3–0 victory for Hibernian against Rangers on 27 August 2005.[7] He had only came onto the pitch as a substitute during the second half of the match.[7]
Kris Boyd broke the SPL goalscoring record set by Henrik Larsson when he scored five goals for Rangers against Dundee United on 30 December 2009.[8]
Kyle Lafferty scored a hat-trick as Rangers clinched the championship on the final day of the 2010–11 Scottish Premier League season.[9]
