    Pretty much agree. And scores of others just below this level. ANd then it crashed to halt from the mid 80s. Saw the rest but not Baxter

    I can only go back to 81 when I started going to Ibrox.

    Given the criteria the OP sets for world class then

    Souness
    Dalglish
    Hanson
    McCoist
    Cooper
    Goram
    Leighton
    Willie Miller
    McGrain

    in my time , Dave Mckay , Denis Law , slim Jim , Dalgleish and Souness my dad says the wee blue devil and Jerry Dawson and john whyte were world class , sandy jardine and McGrain were a level below but not by much .

    I doubt there is much if any serious debate over these players. I think there are probably a few more going further back.
    1) Andy Goram
    2) Jardine
    3) McGrain
    4) Souness
    5) Law
    5) Baxter
    7) Dalglish
    8) Jimmy McGrory (408 appearances and 408 goals is good at most levels)

    The following are debatable IMO
    McCoist
    Greig
    Cooper
    Jimmy Johnstone
    Hansen
    Darren Fletcher

Who do we think were the last 10 Scottish footballers that were by common consent "World Class". Let's define world class as they would have been accepted as top 10 in their position in their era by most knowledgeable fans. Here's my starter:

    Jim Baxter
    Denis Law
    Danny McGrain
    Kenny Dalglish
    Graeme Souness
    Andy Goram

    Over to you my fellow Bears (and here's a clue for lurking Tim's...Paul McStay is a no, never!!!!)
