    seeing as we're doing well for GK's at the minute i thought i'd ask your thoughts on who you believe our best keeper is/has been.

    i think that gordon could become our best ever keeper but he ain't there yet. goram was a monster for rangers but i never thought he replicated that form enough for scotland.

    so i'm plumping for jim leighton. that great looking lad...

    he played in three world cups and kept goram on the bench for quite a while as he held onto the no.1 jersey.

    I think it's Leighton. I think Rough was also good. And I agree with you I think Gordon has the potential to the best.

    Jim Leighton has been my overall favourite although Craig Gordon is coming pretty close and in 10 years will alomst certainly be considered the best Scottish goalkeeper ever.

    There may only be one Craig Gordon, but there will always be two Andy Gorams.
