In 2007, Sunderland signed Craig Gordon from Hearts for £9 million, a record-breaking fee for a British goalkeeper at the time.

The Scottish international racked up over 80 Premier League appearances for the Black Cats between 2007 and 2012, producing a number of fine performances.

His most memorable stop for the Lads came against Bolton Wanderers at the Stadium of Light, when he somehow denied Zat Knight at point-blank range.

The save was subsequently voted the best ever Premier League save.

But after a series of career-threatening knee injuries, the stopper took two years out of football before signing for Celtic in 2014.
