Charlie Adam, love him or hate him, went on to be nominated for the EPL POTY award.  We sold him for £500k and he ended up moving to Liverpool for close to £7m a few years later.  

Agree 100%.

Riles me the way the wee ginger dick makes out he played for our first team and knows Ally well. Never kicked a ball for the first 11 and when Ally was asked said he had never met him. Just stick to making rolls and square sausage Gordon.

 

Still more popular on here than Windass though.:whistle:

 

Why does it bother you? He is as or if not more famous that most players to play for us yet wants to claim he played for us...... Says it all really

Dean Furman.... maybe not made it big but built a solid career after being let go by us and won a lot of international caps.

Van Vossen ended up at Feyenoord and 30 odd caps for Holland. Decent

I think in time we will regret getting rid of Kane Hemmings, I know he's only playing lower English league at the minute but he's banging goals in all over the shop. 

Jamie Ness scored his 1st goal in 3 yr yesterday, hopefully the lad can push on and make a name for himself, he scored one of my favourite ever OF goals.

I also thought Lewis Macleod had the potential to be  Scotland cpt but he sort of disappeared at Brentford.

our best times were probably the 90s and at that time Rangers was as big a Club as your Man Uniteds and other big clubs in Europe if not bigger, so our players wouldnt have needed to move. Many of our best players obviously loved it at Ibrox due to how long they stayed 

As big as Man Utd ....

behave yourself ffs ?

He didn’t make it ‘big’ but Stephen Dobbie actually carved out a decent career down south and played in some big games. Scored in one of the Championship play off finals he played in IIRC.

Some may not like it - but you could probably add Jim Bett to the list? Left us and had nine years in a strong Aberdeen team. Not world class, but left us too soon in my opinion

I'd say he was reasonably well known when we got him. He had also won the Champions league with Ajax the summer before we signed him.

Arteta Done well after leaving us. Pity we didn't keep him a few more seasons. Duncan Ferguson if shit hadn't happened.

Has Bedoya been mentioned? To play for four or five years in Ligue 1 after barely kicking a ball for us was more than anyone expected. Played at the last World Cup too.

Jeremy Clement went on to play 140 games for PSG and 170 games for St Etienne.

Theres some good obscure ones who maybe played for a season in a big league etc though like Mervan Celik playing in Serie A.

Jesper Christiansen had a good career after leaving us and played in the Champions league loads of times for FC Copenhagen.

Hemmings has 8 in 23 (League Two) this season, having scored 6 in 40 (League One) last season. He’s hardly banging them in all over the shop.

33 seconds, McCoist "I remember him well and the one thing that struck me about Gordon the one that never ever changed and never will change is he's a competitive so and so"  Then greets Ramsay like an old pal...

Goran tops klos all day long Imo though. Capable of pulling off truly miraculous saves in big games. 

Was about to say that. If Kris was 2nd to Gorman it was a very distant 2nd.
