Leading members of Scotland's football community attended the funeral service, including members of the current Rangers squad and former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Jardine's team-mate back in the 1960s.
Jardine, who made almost 800 appearances during his Ibrox career, died last week at the age of 65 after battling liver cancer for 18 months.
He was part of Rangers' European Cup Winners' Cup-winning team of 1972 and played 38 times for his country.
His association with Rangers extended after his playing days, and he was part of fundraising efforts to save the club after it went into administration in 2012.
More than 1,000 mourners were in attendance, including supporters from Rangers and his boyhood club Hearts, whom the Edinburgh-born player went on to represent after leaving Ibrox in 1982.
Former SFA chief executive Gordon Smith, who also represented Rangers as a player, said: "I think the Rangers support, and even the Hearts support, had a lot of time for Sandy.
"He had a great career, at international level as well, and it's been a week of sadness. He's been honoured greatly by all the people who have spoken about Sandy right across the game, from different countries too.
"Today is the farewell for his family, friends and former team-mates. A lot of supporters have come along to say farewell as well."
