You cannot make a fair comparison with over 120yrs to choose from.
Who can honestly say that players from yester-year were better or worse than those of today.
With different tactics, equipment, training and video anlyasis would some have been better or poorerin todays game. Likewise how would some of todays playershave coped with the tackles and rough house treatment dished out in the past.
You can probably break it down best teams of the decade or maybe 20yr cycles but anything else is futile.

I take your choice of Tom Boyd, Ed, and it's all about opinions and what each one of us prefers> My dad was the Chief Stand Steward at Parkhead in the mid 60s to the mid 70's and he was good at what he did - he always found me a seat :o) Just thought over the years KT read the defensive game very well and he was initially a left midfielder in the Development Squad and so had the attacking instinct in him. I also liked Darius Wdowczyk but felt KT had the overall package. Same as Davie Elliot - he was the best youth player I've seen at PH.

{Ed007's Note - I like my defenders to defend first and for me Boyd was a better defender - and better servant - than KT was for us.}

Ed, my great grandfather was on the founder's committee - 1895 and 1896. My dad had a trial as goalkeeper. Give me an email addy and I'll send you a biography that I did of my great-grandfather.

Stengo u could post it as an article at the top of the page if you've done it purely to keep the name going. Should be an interesting read for us during the boredom of lockdown.

Tough choices but here is mine.
Boruc
Jackie Mac
Aitken
VVD
Boyd

McStay
Petrov
Lambert

Larsson
Sutton
lubo

As u can see it’s more of up to date theme, no jinky Dalglish McGrain etc. only because I didn’t have the privilege of seeing much of them live. still a good team but I think.

31 Mar 2020 22:17:40
Jackie was a rb all day.

01 Apr 2020 00:26:04
Naw ed. He easily played both. I know boyd also played both but I never thought jackie looked out of position as a RB.

Did tam play more right as time went on and we brought tosh in tae?

{Ed007's Note - I remember Boyd playing CB more than I do RB but there was a lot of alcohol involved in matchdays back then lol.}

01 Apr 2020 12:27:24
Nor did Tommy Gemmell.

Gedceltic. I loved my mother to bits, but I never forgave her for not letting me go to the game. My big brother got to go and ribbed me about it for the rest of his life! It would be eight years of misery before I saw Celtic beating Rangers never mind demolishing them: the 1965 League Cup final!
