Ronaldo, Rooney & Beckham: Who's Manchester United's greatest ever player?

Wayne Rooney & Cristiano Ronaldo are two of Manchester United's greatest ever players

Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in world football.

The Red Devils have won 20 league titles, 12 FA Cups, five League Cups, three European Cups and many more trophies during their 142 year history.

Along with their enormous trophy collection, United have been home to some of the greatest players the beautiful game has ever seen.

But who is the finest of those world-class superstars to have donned the famous red jersey? Well, that's a question that's mighty difficult to answer and most fans of the club will have differing opinions.

However, a hefty number of supporters have tried to answer that question by anonymously voting for who they believe to be United's greatest ever player.

Man Utd's Old Trafford ground

Over 154,000 votes have been cast over on Ranker and unsurprisingly, the rankings at the time of writing are pretty controversial - to say the least.

Let's take a look at the top 30...

Denis Irwin (32nd), Bryan Robson (36th), Dwight Yorke (45th), Mark Hughes (49th) and many other United legends somehow miss out on the top 30.

As for the top 30 itself, we just have so many questions.

Saha ahead of Cole? Giggs only 14th? Cantona only ninth? De Gea ahead of Keane? We could go on for hours to be honest.

The fact current United manager Solskjaer is ahead of Keane, Ferdinand, Giggs and many more players who were far superior to the Norwegian in a United shirt says it all really.

Solskjaer on the touchline

Allowing users the freedom to anonymously vote and re-rank a list of United legends was never going to end well, was it?

Scholes isn't the worst shout for top spot, but most fans of the club would side with the likes of Best, Ronaldo, Cantona and Rooney over the English midfielder.

Every member of that quartet should be ahead of Beckham as well...
