NATHAN PATTERSON completed his dream move to the Premier League by joining Everton from Rangers on Tuesday. 

The 20-year-old has penned a five-year contract with the Toffees.

The deal represents Rangers breaking their record transfer fee received for a player. 

The Scotland international says it was an "easy choice" to sign for such a big club. 

He's not the only Scot to have joined Everton through the years, with the Blues picking up several star players from north of the border over the years. 

Here are six Great Scots the right-back will hope to emulate at Goodison Park.

Steven Naismith

Naisy joined Everton after leaving Rangers in 2012. He went on to make over 100 appearances and scored some important goals while leading the line, including a memorable hat-trick versus Chelsea in the EPL.

The Hearts coach has spoken to the media recently about what Patterson can bring to the Merseyside club. 

He spoke of the fans not being able to identify with some of the big-name players they've signed over the past few seasons. 

He was quoted as saying: “Evertonians like the Scottish mentality of just getting your head down and working hard for the team."

That's certainly something Naismith was renowned for. He had an abundance of talent, but he also worked tremendously hard for the team. 

Patterson appears to be cut from the same cloth, and although clearly playing in a different position, the relationship with the fans will still be the same should his passion and desire come across while pulling on the Everton shirt.

Duncan Ferguson

Probably the most synonymous name on this great list of Scottish players who have trodden on this well worn path. 

Big Dunc started his career at Dundee United before moving to Rangers. He would initially join Everton on loan, before the move was made a permanent one. 

He notched up close to 250 appearances for the Toffess over two separate spells at Goodison, with a brief spell at Newcastle wedged in-between.

The striker was famed for his hardy personality and style of play. Defenders would certainly know they were in for a game when facing him. 

He is so well revered at Goodison, he remains a vital cog of Rafa Benitez's backroom staff. 

He took interim charge of the side three years ago, and it would be no surprise to see Ferguson become permanent manager of the club at some stage in the future.

James McFadden

What a player the Scotland hero was for Everton. 

His stats of 18 goals and and four assists in 147 appearances might not jump off the page for a lot of people, but those who remember Faddy playing on Merseyside will recall the spark he brought to the side. 

He signed for £1.25million from Motherwell in 2003 in what was a huge move for the Scot at the time. 

The Scottish internationalist would go on to become a favourite under David Moyes, producing some fine displays on the wing in big games.

Another famous Scot, Alex McLeish, would obtain his services at Birmingham in 2008 for a £5million fee, as the attacker's Premier League career continued elsewhere. 

David Weir

The defensive stalwart was somewhat of an unsung hero at Goodison during his eight years in England's top flight. 

A favourite of Walter Smith and then the aforementioned Moyes, the centre-back played 263 games for the Evertonians. 

During that time, he bagged ten goals, highlighting his aerial threat from set-pieces.

Likes all of these players, as Naismith alluded too, the fans loved the effort, fight and hard-working nature of the Scotland defender. That, above all else, is something Patterson will look to replicate. 

Weir would join Rangers in 2007 under Smith, and would go on to make 215 appearances until retirement in 2012. 

Gary Naysmith

Like his namesake earlier mentioned on this list, Naysmith would enjoy relative success during his seven years with Everton. 

Having started his career at Hearts, the left-earned a switch down south. 

He had far more first team experience than Patterson does despite both moving an similarly early points of their playing days.

He played over 130 times for the Goodison outfit before eventually moving to Sheffield United in 2007. 

His career at Everton really propelled Naysmith's Scotland career, as he earned many of his 46 caps during the spell. Patterson could well follow suit, although in the opposite full-back role.

Richard Gough

And finally, bucking the trend of all the other players here, the Scotland favourite actually ended his career with Everton. 

He made just over 40 appearances between 1999 and 2001 under Smith, who he knew previously from a successful time at Rangers. 

Goughy needs no introduction regarding what he achieved in the game. 

Although he would always give his best, it would be fair to say that his prime playing days were behind him by the time he got to Goodison. 

So in that respect, his time with Everton will be much different to Patterson, who is still very much at the beginning of his. That's not to say he can't look at Gough's time with Everton take things from it.

Good players will always strive to do better. Patterson certainly strikes home as a young man who will go to great lengths to improve and be the best he can be.
