Gibson joined Rangers in 1894 from junior side Royal Albert. During his time at Ibrox, he won four consecutive league titles (1898-99, 1899-1900, 1900-01 and 1901-02) as well as the Scottish Cup in 1897, 1898 and 1903.
He moved to Partick Thistle in 1904 where he remained for five years.
Former Hibernian manager Willie McCartney stated that Gibson was "The greatest of my, and any generation following, in Scottish football", Steve Bloomer of Derby County and England described him as "The greatest footballer I ever saw", and Gibson's artistry led Harry Wood to dub him "Pavlova in football boots".
