Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Danny was born on this date in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Danny was a Northern Ireland schools, youth, Under-21 and 'B' international and went on to become a full international with 29 caps. He was with St Johnstone for almost seven years and then signed for United. His debut was delayed for several months because of injury but he became a regular in the line up and Club captain. Danny was plagued by injury in his last two seasons at Tannadice, and in January 2004 he left to join Stockport County.

  • Visits toTynecastle Park have not been that enjoyable in recent seasons with some notable exceptions, not least, our victory there last season. In this game, right from the start, it was clear that this would not be one of the exceptions with Hearts threatening to swamp United from the first few minutes. United started without the man who has rapidly become a hero in the Arab defence, the suspended Jim Lauchlan...and how we missed him! Hearts cut right through the tangerine rearguard from the kick-off and within five minutes were one up when Colin Cameron netted. United were happy to give another outing to Danny Griffin but they didn't look up for the battle here and the Jambo's threatened to provide a big score when they went two up by the 20th minute, the second coming from a quite spectacular Neil Heaney headed own goal. Then quite surprisingly, the visitors came back into the match. United won a free kick just outside the penalty area and Hasney Aljofree scored from the rebound of Miller's free kick after 27 minutes. For a while, United took heart from getting back into the game and a nervousness spread round the maroon support. It was surprising that the Arabs were still within one goal of Hearts at half time because they hadn't played well and the Jambo's were playing with a strong sense of purpose for their new manager.

  • With both United and Aberdeen showing much improved form recently, this rearranged match was eagerly anticipated by both sets of supporters. After the outstanding 2-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox, there was huge expectation in theTannadice ranks going into the game. Aberdeen were also confident of getting a result after pushing champions elect Celtic hard three days earlier. As expected, Alex Smith kept faith with the eleven players who had finished the game at Ibrox, with Stephen Thompson starting up front In place of the injured Jim Hamilton. Returning from suspension, midfielder David Hannah had to settle for a place on the subs bench as the manager opted for 4-3-3 formation with the onus on attack.

  • United were the better side in the opening twenty minutes and Latapy was getting the better of a nervous Hearts side, but chances were few and far between for both sides in the early stages. Hearts began to take charge in the latter stages of the half with Valois, De Vries and Severin all trying their luck at goal before United took the lead through a beautifully executed Griffin free-kick.

  • Last Appearance - Kilmarnock 0 - 2 Dundee United

    United made the long trip to Kilmarnock today and scored a goal in each half to grab all three points and move up three places in the league to seventh. There were two changes from the eleven who started on Tuesday evening against Partick Thistle, with Jim Paterson and Barry Robson fielded in place of Danny Griffin and Charlie Miller, both of whom were on the bench.
