    Cummings has time on his side, and a medal that the other 2 would kill for.

    Jason had some great seasons with us, but unlike the other two he hasn't scored in the SPL.

    Anyway, back to the original point - I think Griffiths is the better all round player, he was a huge goal threat as part of a team that was really toiling. Riordan was the purer striker of the ball.

    Unreal talent, he could hit them from anywhere. Really didn't have the career he should of had but neverthless he will always be a hibs legend.

    Griffiths by a country mile. He's pretty much first choice for the national team and deservedly so.

    Great player for us but are some on here seriously suggesting that he could still do a job for us?

    Sad to say it but hes been finished for quite some time now.

    I am now approaching the wrong side of my Sixties, seen some fantastic players at our club but Derek Riordan is up there with Stanton and O'Rourke for me. some of his goals were sublime.
    Watched Hibs for 47 years. The most gifted Scottish player I have seen play for Hibs. The control and long diagonal ball for O'Connor to score against I think Hearts was sublime.

    Honestly, Since the Turnbull era, I would say John Collins was better player than both Griffiths and Riordan - Riordan a more natural finisher of the two (two footed), Griffiths a better Number 9
