Alex Totten

Alex Totten was manager of Kilmarnock between 1994 & 1996 but his most notable moment came in the opposition dugout when a kilted Totten's Falkirk side lost to Bobby Williamson's Killie in the final of the Scottish Cup in 1997.

From his Wikipedia: Three years as a manager for Alloa Athletic ended when he became manager at previous club Falkirk after leading Alloa Athletic to the Scottish First Division and a 6th-place finish.

He then moved to Rangers to become Jock Wallace's assistant, leaving Rangers when Graeme Souness was appointed in 1986 and went to manage Dumbarton.

He then took St. Johnstone from the old Second Division to the Premier Division in the space of three seasons. He also led St. Johnstone to Scottish Cup semi-final appearances in 1989 and 1991. Totten's role in St. Johnstone's progress was rewarded when he was made SFWA Manager of the Year for 1991, but Geoff Brown sacked Totten in 1992 for demanding too much money for new players.

Totten then managed East Fife and Kilmarnock, before returning to Falkirk as a manager in 1996. He guided Falkirk to the 1997 Scottish Cup Final, having defeated Celtic in the semi-final. Falkirk lost 1–0 to Kilmarnock, who had sacked Totten earlier that season, in the final.

Totten was eventually moved into a director of football role by Falkirk in 2002. Falkirk played Rangers in a testimonial match for Totten on 21 July 2007 at the Falkirk Stadium. The match ended 1–1 with Lee McCulloch scoring for Rangers and Pedro Moutinho scoring for Falkirk.
