Biography

Rado was a youth player with his hometown side Sokół Szamocin in his native Poland before he made his professional debut at the age of 21. Over the next three years, he had spells with six different regional clubs before signing for Stomil Olsztyn. A season later he moved to Aluminium Konin, making several appearances before moving to the now defunct Amica Wronki, giving him his first taste of European football in the UEFA Cup. When Lech Poznan and Amica merged, he joined the new Poznan side. Failing to break into the team, Rado left within a season and he went on to become the first choice keeper at Korona Kielce, where his form earned him his first Poland international cap. In 2011, he moved abroad to Cypriot side Alki Larnaca, where he spent a year. In February the following year, Rado agreed a pre-contract with United, and in the months he waited for his deal to begin, he played for Polish side KS Cracovia.

His move to United was completed in the summer of 2012 and he was instantly installed as the Club's first choice keeper and was ever present throughout the 2012-13 season. He remained an ever present until May 2014, having played 89 consecutive games for United. That month, he collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final against St Johnstone. Rado remained first choice during the final year of his contract, earning a reputation for making a series of penalty kick saves. He collected a runners up medal in the League Cup Final that season before leaving the Club upon the expiration of his contract.

  • Dinamo Moscow twice fought back to register a draw in the Europa League qualifying third round tie. Crowd trouble marred the early part of the match as rival supporters clashed

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 0 Dundee

    It was a scrappy start with Dundee doing most of the pressing but with their first foray into the opposition box the hosts went ahead in 8 minutes. Chris Erskine received the ball in midfield and lofted a pass to Nadir Ciftci in behind the Dundee defence. Goalkeeper Kyle Letheren rushed out to challenge but allowed the ball to slip by offering Nadir Çiftçi the easy task of slamming the ball into an empty net. The Dark Blues kept pushing forward without really hurting the hosts and as a result left plenty space for United on the counter. They were often caught with tangerine shirts bearing down on them and both Paul McGinn and Thomas Konrad were booked for cynical challenges during this spell. In the 28th minute Dundee had their best chance when Greg Stewart did well to beat Erskine at the bye line before laying back to Stephen McGinn whose shot was held by Rado Cierzniak at the second attempt. The visitors were left to rue this miss as the home side doubled their lead in the 28th minute. Robbie Muirhead held the ball up well before playing in Ciftci on the left edge of the area. As the Turk evaded Konrad in the box the defender was then adjudged to have brought his man down as Bobby Madden pointed to the spot. Despite already being on a yellow card there was no further punishment for the German. As he did at Dens in the last derby Nadir Çiftçi was as composed as could be as he sent Letheren the wrong way to score his and United’s second. The pattern remained the same for the rest of the half with Dundee continuing to win corners but never seriously bothering the goal and United always looking likely to score on the break.
