Each player on the shortlist was rated out of ten in four categories: their goals return, how prolific they were at their peak, and how long that peak extended; their ability to turn it on in big games; their effectiveness in winning trophies and awards, taking into account that trophies tend to be more concentrated at a handful of clubs in the modern era; and the work they did for the team.

Then, Four Four Two ranked each player out of 20 for their 'wow' factor - what made them stand out and how they delighted and entertained fans.

Larsson should have been #1 tbh.

Good to see 2 Celtic players in the top 10 though.
