Biography

Paul played for Monifieth Athletic Boys Club before coming though the Dundee youth set up, making his first team debut at the start of the 2005-06 season. He became a first team regular with the Dark Blues for three years, taking his appearance tally to over 100 before moving across the road to Tannadice in the 2008 close season, having turned down approaches from Norwich City and Kilmarnock.

A Scotland Under-21 international since 2007, Paul established himself quickly, and made the left back slot at United his own. His impressive form saw him selected for the full Scotland squad for the International friendly with the Czech Republic, but a torrid time of injuries prevented Paul from making his international debut and he also missed out on a Scottish Cup winners medal in May 2010.

After signing a two year contract extension, he made his 100th appearance for the Club in in May 2011, and had a near ever-present record at Tannadice over the next two seasons as United became a regular qualifier for European competition. His great delivery into the box assisted a number of goals, and he always chipped in with a few goals himself, usually of the spectacular variety.
Following four successful seasons, Paul left United when his contract expired, joining Huddersfield Town. Within a few months, he had finally earned a Scotland cap under national manager Craig Levein. He spent two and a half seasons at John Smith's before the mutual termination of his contract in January 2015 saw him make a transfer deadline day return to Tannadice on February 2nd, signing a two and a half year contract.

Paul went straight back into the United first team, making his second debut for the club against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, and made his 150th appearance for United against Partick Thistle at the end of February. He also played in the League Cup Final at Hampden in March 2015, earning a runners-up medal. He continued to be a fixture in the first team during the 2015/16 season, but couldn't prevent United being relegated to the Championship after a disappointing season.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Paul was born on this date in Dundee.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Paul played for Monifieth Athletic Boys Club before coming though the Dundee youth set up, making his first team debut at the start of the 2005-06 season. He became a first team regular with the Dark Blues for three years, taking his appearance tally to over 100 before moving across the road to Tannadice in the 2008 close season, having turned down approaches from Norwich City and Kilmarnock.

  • United progressed comfortably into the Co-Operative Insurance Cup quarter finals after despatching Airdrie with ease courtesy of first half goals from David Goodwillie and Scott Robertson.

  • In a game of two contrasting halves, United gave themselves a mountain to climb – then climbed it with style. Following a disappointing first half from the visitors and with Celtic two goals to the good not long after the break, the game seemed dead and buried. But this United side are made of stern stuff and they produced one of their best 45 minutes of the season to get back on level terms – and then went looking for a winner.

  • Ray McKinnon’s Dundee United side travelled to the Falkirk Stadium for the second leg of their Premiership Play-off Semi-Final tie with Peter Houston’s Bairns following a 2-2 draw in the first game at Tannadice. United’s previous two visits to Falkirk had ended in 3-1 and 3-0 defeats earlier in the season and a much better performance would be required from the Terrors to progress to the Premiership Play-off Final. There were two changes to the United starting eleven with both full-backs being replaced from the first leg. Young Jamie Robson was dropped in favour of the experience of Paul Dixon and Stewart Murdoch, who had been effectively ruled out for the rest of the season through injury, was replaced by club captain Sean Dillon. Falkirk also made two alterations to their starting line-up with Paul Watson and John Baird coming in for Peter Grant and former United man Lee Miller.

  • 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.
