The top five places highlight the talent in the full-back areas, while they have been joined by those Mr Consistents that all teams required. Scroll through to find out the best full-backs in the top flight as voted by members of the Terrace Scottish Football Podcast.

One of the few Dundee players who came out of the season with a bit of credit. Voted the club's player of the year. Attack minded but doesn't negate defensive responsibility. Good in the air.
The right-back has stagnated and even regressed. Overshadowed by team-mate Max Lowe and without competition at right-back. Still a fine operator at Premiership level.
The Saints full-back was excellent with Drey Wright in ahead of him at the front end of the season, so much so he wanted a Scotland call-up. Tailed off after the winter break.

Another impressive season for the left-back. Continues to improve and is one of the most reliable players in the league.
The Swede has had an interesting season. It is a position Celtic have tried to improve on but he fought his way back into the starting team under Neil Lennon and provided a steadying influence.
Mr Consistent at Tynecastle. Excelled as a sweeper and played as a wing-back, never let Hearts down. A player fans know what they will get.
One of the few full-backs in the league capable of playing either right or left-back to a high standard. Gives Motherwell great energy, aggressive and great crosser of the ball.
It says a lot about the quality of players above him in the list that he sits fifth. Another whose standards rarely fall. Composed and tenacious. Deserving of his Scotland call-up.
What a signing by Derek McInnes. A vast improvement on Andrew Considine and provided real thrust down the wing, supporting attacks and driving the Dons forward. Will be missed.
The rampaging right-back has forged an excellent career for himself after moving back north from Luton. Offers Killie so much down the right, attacking and defensively.
Arguably more valuable than Alfredo Morelos. Does a bit of everything. So dangerous going forward but continues to develop as a defender.
A difficult season for the left-back after so much football. Troubled by a hernia issue, yet he has still been of a high standard. The most talented in Scotland.
