John "Jock" Drummond (13 April 1870 – 24 January 1935) was a Scottish footballer who played for Falkirk, Rangers and the Scotland national team.

Career[edit]

Drummond joined Rangers in 1892 from Falkirk. He went on to win five Scottish Cup medals (1894, 1897, 1898, 1899 and 1903) and four consecutive league titles (1898-99, 1899-1900, 1900-01 and 1901-02) - the first of which Rangers won all 18 of their Scottish league matches.[3] Drummond was inducted into the Rangers F.C. Hall of Fame in 2011.

Drummond was also capped 14 times by Scotland between 1892 and 1903. He also captained his country on four occasions. He finished his playing career with first club Falkirk, latterly becoming their coach then, eventually, a director.[4] He is notable for being the last outfield player in Scottish football to wear a cap while playing.[4]
