Pallister believes that when people look back he will be spoken about in the same breath as the all-time legends.
He said: "At his very best, he was every bit as good as George Best flying down that wing.
"In years to come he will be spoken about in the same breath as the likes of Best, Bobby Charlton and Eric Cantona.
"On his day there has been nothing to compare to him in the Premier League for his balance and pace with the ball.
"It was not a comfortable experience for any defender facing him - and I know, having done it many times in training."
