Compact Scottish forward who was picked up by the club as a
16-year-old and made his debut at the age of 17. The following season
he became a regular, and his goal-scoring talents looked like they had
a promising future at the club. After a couple of injuries, he found
himself sidelined and subsequently sold to Oldham by Billy
Bremner. His one and only international honour came as a substitute in
an U-21 game against Belgium. His best spell as a player probably came
during his time at Leicester, when he held down a regular place for 3
years and picked up a respectable number of goals: his time at Boro
was less productive with injuries starting to prove his undoing.
