    I get this will be dependent on how old you are, I've added a few from yesteryear to keep our golden oldies happy.

    The most complete? Stan, without doubt. He could be an attacking midfielder goalscoring threat, he could be an anchorman, he could be box to box, he could be the guy that cover other players, he could move out to the wing, * he even filled in at fullback a few times.

    Definitely the most complete I’ve seen.

    Went with McStay, maybe a sentimental vote but he was a class act. Just a shame his career was during a shocking period.

    It's an age thing really. If you saw McStay it's him every day of the week and twice on Saturdays.

    My hero growing up, Lambo. Could and did do everything, goalscoring attacking centre mid converted to a Champions League holding midfielder. Pure class.

    I’d class Lubo in this group though and he tops them all.

    I saw Celtic play for the first time in 1972, so I just missed Murdoch ........ Therefore it has to be McStay

    There was no N'Guemo option, so I had to settle for McStay. Lambert a close second.
