I don't if it can be done directly in Google Scholar, as it doesn't seem to allow to sort the results of the search. I think you'll have to copy the citation numbers and sort them yourself.

Google scholar seems to automatically calculate this and show it on the right sidebar of the scientist's page. For example:
243203

https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=qj74uXkAAAAJ&hl=en
Of course this assumes that the scientist has a Google Scholar page and that the page is accurate. No idea if there are any other good free sources if the author is not listed on Google Scholar.

If I understood correctly, for this to work the author must have created a personal profile and made that profile public.
