Notes - Rare player shirt believed to have been issued to Whittaker in the Europa League Qualifying Play-Off 1st leg match against Maribor played at the Ljudski vrt, Maribor on the 18th August 2011. The side failed to qualify for the Champions League after being defeated by the Swedish side Malmö in the third qualifying round and then went on to play this Play-Off. Despite taking the lead, the hosts would win the match 2-1 and the Gers would fail in the second leg. The season would be marked by the financial turmoil, with the Gers finishing as distant runners-up in the SPL after a 10 point deduction for going into administration. The club's debts were so crippling that the PLC was forced into liquidation at the end of the season and the club started the following season in the Third Division. Whittaker was not part of the squad in the game and went on to make 22 appearances in his 5th and last season at the Ibrox Stadium.
