right up there with George mccluskey as showing pure class in the twilight of his career for killie, guys like those two make you look forward to the footie

I loved George but Burke is a step ahead IMO.

Burke is playing week in week out and lasting 90 mins. George was some player right enough but I think  Burke is playing a higher standard. at the same age IMO.

Burke is playing in the top league in a time when athleticism is more to the fore than before.  George could play number 10 and give himself more space, Burke plays out on the wing and is more exposed.

Burke for me is a better player at this age than mccluskey was.  Plus Burkey didnt cost is teo packets of maletsers either.

Better signing than Mulumbu IMO

Agreed. Been so influential and actually enjoys playing for us. 
 

The best winger I’ve ever seen at RP.

Referees seem to agree too.

In two and a bit seasons at Killie, he's received five yellow cards - three of them this season - in 6,000 minutes.

 I also love that simple goal celebration. Brophy may have his Wolf thing going on but I prefer Burke. 
 

Only one man does it better:
