Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Rab was born on this date in Bellshill.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Rab was with Dundee, Middlesbrough (loan), Dunfermline Athletic and Motherwell before joining United under freedom of contract. He was a regular in the side in 1995-96 and influential in the First Division promotion winning side but in October 1996 he moved to Hibs for a fee quoted at £100,000.

  • Morton's message to United playing their first match out with the top flight of Scottish football for 35 years was "welcome to the First Division" as they gave us an early sample of how hard a task lies ahead of us this season. But given that the United line-up contained all five summer signings, there were some encouraging signs, particularly as five players were still suspended!

  • United made sure that there was no repeat of their shock defeat at Boghead back in October with a fictory which could have been even more convincing. Steven Pressley returned from suspension to the exclusion of Mark Perry in defence, but this was the only change in the United line-up from the one which defeated St Mirren. Dumbarton had the first shot on goal from King before the Tangerines started to dominate play and taking a twelfth minute lead.

  • Never a classic, United appeared on their way to collecting maximum points from the meeting of the two promoted clubs until Tod popped up with a header thirteen minutes from the end. "The ball must have had a sair heid" was manager Tommy McLean's assessment of a first half which, being kind, contained precious few moments to savour.
