Collingwood veteran Tyson Goldsack has revealed to Triple M's The Rush Hour the best players he's played with and against.

The 32-year old announced his retirement from the game on Tuesday after 13 seasons, who will go down as one of the most loved Magpies to pull on the jumper.

Goldsack could not go past Pies skipper and longtime teammate Scott Pendlebury as the best he's played with, with the silky midfielder set to play his 300th game in next Friday night's qualifying final clash against Geelong.

“Pendles has to be up there just from how consistent how a bloke can be, especially when he can’t sprint, Mick would call him slow as treacle,” Goldsack said.

"He's so classy and so consistent. He'd have to be the best I've played with."

As for the best he's come up against, Goldsack named four-time premiership Hawk Cyril Rioli while giving kudos to Sydney legend Buddy Franklin.

“Cyril Rioli, so dangerous, you can man him for three quarters and then he’d still kick three or four. Players (like that) were so dangerous and difficult.

"In my first year I played on Buddy Franklin and he showed me what it was all about."
