DAVID SINCLAIR from Stirling wonders who Davie considers to be the best he has played with and against?

Ronnie Simpson was the best I played with - though I did once lob him while playing in a reserve game.

Faither always gave the right shouts, and, even if a player got past you, you were confident Ronnie would save the day.

In terms of keepers I played against, I rank Pat Jennings as the best.

I faced him while playing for Scotland and Chelsea, and recall he had hands like shovels.
