Biography

Climbing up through the youth ranks at Rangers from the age of 12, Charlie Telfer made his professional debut in 2014 against Stenhousemuir as a substitute in what would prove to be his one and only appearance for the Ibrox club. During his time under professional terms at Rangers, he also represented Scotland at Under-19 level. Upon the expiry of his contract, at the age of eighteen, he moved to Tannadice on a three year contract.

Charlie made his United debut in the opening game of the season at Pittodrie, coming on as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Aberdeen. After a few more sub appearances, he made his first starting eleven against St Mirren in November, scoring his first goal for the Club in a 3-0 win at Tannadice, and he collected the SPFL Young Player of the Month Award for that month. His second goal for United was just as special, scoring the sixth goal in the 6-2 victory over Dundee on New Years’ Day, and grabbed another two against Motherwell just a few weeks later. Charlie finished his first season with 15 starts for United and 10 substitute appearances.

With heavy competition for first team places in midfield, Charlie joined SPFL League One side Livingston on loan until the end of the 2015-16 season after a quiet start to United's campaign. He featured regularly for the Lions as they reached the SPFL Championship Promotion playoff, before returning to United in May. Under new manager Ray McKinnon, he returned to first team action during the 2016-17 pre-season.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Charlie was born on this date in Carluke, South Lanarkshire.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Climbing up through the youth ranks at Rangers from the age of 12, Charlie Telfer made his professional debut in 2014 against Stenhousemuir as a substitute in what would prove to be his one and only appearance for the Ibrox club. During his time under professional terms at Rangers, he also represented Scotland at Under-19 level. Upon the expiry of his contract, at the age of eighteen, he moved to Tannadice on a three year contract.

  • United stormed to the top of the league on the opening weekend of the 2014/15 season with a stunning 3-0 away win at Pittodrie. United had failed to record a single victory against the Dons last season so it was always going to be a tough opening fixture for the tangerines. Jackie's first team selection of the season had a familiar look from middle to front, with the Manager sticking by players used extensively last season. However, at the back there were three debutants in the four man defence. Jarek Fojut and Callum Morris formed the central defensive partnership and Conor Townsend came in at left back. Former United man, David Goodwillie started up front for the Dons.

  • There were more than a few puzzled faces around Tannadice when the teams were announced for this first match of November. McNamara elected to make 6 changes from the team that successfully won through to the semi-final of the League Cup just a few days earlier. Dillon, Morris Butcher, Telfer, Ciftci and Bilate all coming into the team with the most surprising ommision being John Rankin.

  • United made the trip south to Palmerston Park with the hope of booking themselves a place in the final of the IRB BRU Cup against either St Mirren or the leaders of the Welsh Premier League The New Saints. McKinnon made three changes with Dillon, Murray, Telfer and Edjenguélé returning to the starting line up. The Doonhamers had a limited squad to chose from with Thomson, Mercer and Rankin all cup tied.

  • Last Appearance - Hamilton 1 - 0 Dundee United

    Ray McKinnon made just one change to his starting line-up from the side which had drawn 0-0 with Accies in the first leg of the Premiership Play-off Final with Charlie Telfer replacing Wato Kuate who had effectively been released from his contract following his on-field antics in the Tannadice game. United were relieved to have the services of Simon Murray despite his dismissal on Thursday night with the club appealing his second yellow card for simulation. Martin Canning was forced into making two changes to his side with Grant Gillespie coming in for the injured Massimo Donati and Greg Docherty starting in place of the suspended Darian MacKinnon.
