Australian Football: Aussies to look out for in the Scottish Premiership

With the Premiership season getting underway in early August, a number of Australian players are preparing for the rigours of a top-flight campaign in Scotland.

Here’s a look at some of the Aussie stars set to take part in the Premiership and what they will be hoping to achieve over the months to come.

Hearts with healthy Aussie representation

Edinburgh has become home to many Australians over the years and Calem Nieuwenhof, Nathaniel Atkinson, Cameron Devlin and Kye Rowles are all set to be plying their trade in the Scottish capital with Heart of Midlothian.

Former Western Sydney midfielder Nieuwenhof has just joined Hearts on a four-year deal after signing from the Wanderers in July.

Having played with former Hearts player Oli Bozanic, he was told of what to expect at Hearts and why he should make the move to Tynecastle. 

Handed the No.8 shirt ahead of the new campaign, Australia under-23 international Nieuwenhof will be hoping to have a big impact this season.

He will join some fellow Aussies at Tynecastle, with Atkinson, Devlin and Rowles already established figures at Hearts.

Once again it looks set to be Cetlic and Rangers competing for the title but Hearts will be battling to be the best of the rest.

Hearts are 2.75 to win the title in 2023/24 Without Celtic & Rangers market.

Competition across the capital 

Just across Edinburgh, Hibernian has its own Australian stars looking for a strong season over the coming months.

Lewis Miller, Martin Boyle and Jimmy Jeggo have already played for the Easter Road outfit and should now be settled into the physical nature of Premiership football far from the warmer climate Down Under.

Boyle certainly will as a Scottish-born player who qualified to play for Australia with his father Graeme born in Sydney.

Making his debut for the Socceroos back in 2018, Boyle has made 19 appearances for Australia, while Hibs teammate Jeggo made his debut the same year and has 15 caps.

All three players will be eager to help the Hibernian cause, with the Leith outfit at 4.00 to win the title in 2023/24 Without Celtic & Rangers market.   

St Mirren duo eyeing top six

St Mirren have a couple of Aussie stars in their ranks, with Keanu Baccus and Ryan Strain set to feature for the Paisley outfit.

The Buddies managed to finish sixth last season behind fourth-place Hearts and fifth-placed Hibernian in the standings.

Baccus and Strain will be eager to help St Mirren enjoy a similar campaign, with the Paisley outfit available at 2.75 for a top-six finish this season.
