    Dougie McGuire in the mid 80's think he only got a couple of app's, one in Europe tho. but he lived in same street as me when I was younger and we thought he'd go on to big things, not to be for him sadly. Think we sold him to Coventry.

    John Paul McBride was the next Paul McStay and after that I always thought Mark Burchill was going to be an absolute star. He didn't have a bad career to be fair, just not as good as I thought it would be

    David Marshall - Could have been, just didnt workout for him here

    Paul Caddis - good career atleast

    Paul George - career went nowhere

    Liam Henderson - again, good career so far

    Tony Watt - maybe doesnt count, waster

    Islam Feruz - *

    Mikey Johnstone - TBC


    Incidentally I thought Tierney was pish, McGregor was meh and hadnt heard of Forrest before his debut

    och nearly forgot, Stevie Fulton, touted by big Caesar as the next Baggio. Had so much hope that he would hit the heights but another who didn't quite make the grade.

    I know we got pumped by PSG but he wasn't at all fazed by Suarez. He might still do it.

    Dylan McGeouch.

    Was at the game where he scored against St Mirren. Now I dont even know if I'm spelling his name right.

    Really liked Paul Caddis when he broke through. Felt we got rid of him a bit too soon. Same goes for Jackson Irvine.

    As above, McGeouch is another one. Was at the St Mirren game as well and that goal was different class.
