Kinnaird was instantly recognizable by his red beard and long white trousers, (although a Scotland team photograph of 1879 shows him wearing three quarter length knickers), and was known for his robust approach to play.
Kinnaird made his only official appearance for Scotland in the second international- a 4-2 defeat to England at the Oval in 1873. He played in 3 nonofficial 'internationals' for Scotland (against England) between 1870 and 1872.
* Kinnaird caught a high ball and stepped over the goal line in doing so. The goal was allowed , however, tradition has it that Kinnaird was later able to persuade the FA to expunge the goal from the official record of the game.
** Contemporary sources state that Kinnaird took a free kick from which a 'scrimmage' developed, the ball being carried over the line, and the actual scorer's identity could not be determined from this melee.
