Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Steven was born on this date in Paisley.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Steven progressed through the youth system at United and by April 1996 he was playing in the reserves. He became a Scotland schools, youth, Under-21 and full international and in 1996-97 he was part of the United side which won the Youth League. Over the next two seasons he had frequent first team outings and by 1999-2000 he was established in the line up. Steven was then a regular for four years and was top scorer in 2001-02 and joint top scorer in the next campaign. In January 2003, he signed for Rangers as Billy Dodds moved in the opposite direction.

  • Hearts third visit of the season to Tannadice produced exactly the same result as the other two - a 1-0 victory for the lads in tangerinel

  • Uniteds 100th tie in Europe was undoubtedly the easiest. They just failed to equal the all time Scottish record victory in Europe by a single goal, but created a club record 17-0 aggregate win which in all probability, will never be equalled. Gary McSwegan (8), Robbie Winters (23), Gary McSwegan (24), Andy McLaren (37), Robbie Winters (42), Kjell Olofsson (55), Lars Zetterlund (59), Gary McSwegan (65) and Steven Thompson (88) were the United scorers.

  • A last minute winner from Jim McIntyre gave United their first win over Kilmarnock in nineteen matches and took the Tangerines off the bottom of the premierleague.

  • United ended a losing sequence of results when they drew for the third time this season with Partick Thistle. With Motherwell losing at Livingston, United closed the gap at the foot of the table to just one point although the Fir Park side have a game in hand and a superior goal difference.
