    One from more recent years, Joe Thomson.
    He was hyped at 17, Made his debut for us at 18 5 years ago.

    Never broke into 1st team though and left to go to Dunfermline, where he has been for the past 2 season.

    Paul George.

    I'm sure he was Forrests year in the academy and was rated higher.

    Marcus Fraser - Coming on against Rennes in Europa League all those years ago and looked solid, didn't play after that, saying that he's still done okay but looked like he could of played a few more times after that night

    I'm sure he was captain and even played in the final for Scotland against Spain with the likes of Steven Fletcher..

    Injuries ruined him..

    John Paul McBride was the booze..

    The majority in here I didn't think would make it. Actually thought Paul Caddis would..

    McGeough was unlucky. Was brilliant against Madrid in that friendly then got an injury same game. Was also played wing back under Lenny for a while as well which I don't think helped him..

    McGeough (and Jacskon Irvine) was us waiting until they were too old before getting them out on loan to get some proper football under their belt’s. Think we’ve made sure to rectify that issue now.

    It used to be 22 mate, if he gets another one next season he’ll come back at 21 with 2 full seasons under his belt hopefully. Saying that, in Hendo’s case it’s not worked out that way.

    That's right mate. His international debut in a friendly against Romania. Done his knee and never recovered. Retired shortly after it. Would have been a great CB for us.

    Brutal! Im sure Celtic have put him through his badges and things, so he can have a crack at coaching. I mean 26 for a Assistant Manager is young, years ahead of him.
