How many truly World Class players have played for the club?

Jim Baxter for one. Any others?

 

Can only speak for the era in which I've been old enough to appreciate players but I'd say guys like van Bronckhorst, Laudrup and De Boer could all be considered world class.

 

You can then add players like Butcher, Gough, McCoist and Goram who I think were truly terrific players who should have played at 'higher' levels relatively speaking.

During my childhood, we worshipped Baxter. It was more a memory of the player which was not reinforced when he returned to the club in 1969.

 

My grandfathers' generation loved Baxter too, but I remember most insisted their childhood hero, Neilly Gibson was a better player.

I'd add Gascoigne to that list mate.

 

My old man says Sandy Jardine was world class.

Possibly a slight twist on the original question (sorry...)

 

How many have gone won World Class honours ie World cup medals, Champions league winners etc???

 

Ah, the scientific route... ;)

 

I think Gio is our most decorated player in that respect even if Rino and Caniggia both won the World Cup
