Biography


Starting his career with Montenegrin side FK Sutjeska Nikši?, Miodrag signed for Red Star Belgrade in 1983. Whilst there he helped the Serbian side win two Yugoslavian League championships and the Yugoslav Cup, as well as five international caps for Yugoslavia.

Signing for United for an estimated £200,000 in August 1988, it took Mio nearly two months to make his first appearance due to red tape and injury. He finally made his first team debut as a substitute in the League Cup semi-final against Aberdeen at Dens Park near the end of September. Originally used as cover for Paul Hegarty and Dave Narey, whilst also making appearances at full-back, the classy, versatile defender became a regular over the next two seasons, forming a partnership with fellow European defender Freddy Van der Hoorn, collecting a Scottish Cup runners-up medal after losing in the final against Motherwell in May 1991.

However, after a contract dispute with the Club, he did not turn up at Tannadice for the next season and threatened to quit football completely. He returned to Tannadice in March 1992 and signed a new deal. To regain match fitness, he played mainly in the reserves in 1992-93, but came into the starting eleven when called upon during the winter months, until he was transfer listed in April 1993. Mio was released a month later and joined Motherwell om July 1993, much to the annoyance of incoming United manager, Yugoslav internationalist Ivan Golac.

Mio spent three years at Fir Park, helping them finish third and second in the Premier Division, their highest League placings since the 1950s. In March 1996 he signed for Raith Rovers where he spent one season before moving on to Hamilton Academical, where he later took up a coaching role after retiring in 1998. Mio then returned to Motherwell in September 2001, spending a short time as caretaker manager. In June 2008 he was appointed youth coach at Celtic.

International Debut: December 23rd, 1987 v. Turkey

The Red Star Belgrade defender had made his international debut in December 1987, against Turkey, and remained a regular in the Yugoslavian national team's line-up through 1988, with appearances against Wales, Italy and Germany. After signing for United in August that year, his debut for the club was held up due to registration problems. Meanwhile he played once more at international level, coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 win over Spain in Oviedo, six days before his debut for United as a substitute in the League Cup semi-final against Aberdeen.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Miodrag was born on this date in Nikši?, Montenegro, FPR Yugoslavia.

  • International Debut

    Miodrag earned his first International cap for Yugoslavia, playing against Turkey.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Starting his career with Montenegrin side FK Sutjeska Nikši?, Miodrag signed for Red Star Belgrade in 1983. Whilst there he helped the Serbian side win two Yugoslavian League championships and the Yugoslav Cup, as well as five international caps for Yugoslavia.

  • After the saga of last season's Scottish Cup semi, both sides knew that a decision would be reached on the night with extra-time and penalties to decide the issue. Unlike the cagey nature of all last season's Scottish Cup semi-finals, this was a typical Cup tie which got off to a sensational start.

  • The Fir Park side may be bottom of the League, but on the evidence of this performance it is hardly a position that they merit. Frankly, we were a little bit lucky to collect both points against a Motherwell side which never gave up. However, as Celtic are finding just now, when luck deserts you everything seems to go wrong. Even the boost of an early goal failed to turn Motherwell's luck. Only five minutes had ticked by when Tom Boyd engineered a goal for Steve Kirk, who stole in to flash a header past Billy Thomson. Motherwell might have had a second seven minutes later when Paul Kinnaird twisted and turned to send a shot just past the far post.

  • We got back on the rails following Saturday's set back against Motherwell, who have shown greatly improved form since the turn of the year. In the first half particularly, we made most of the running on a heavy Fir Park surface.

  • 50th Appearance - Dundee 0 - 0 Dundee United

    The only winner in this Cup tie was the wind as we failed to over-come Dundee at the fourth attempt this season. Whereas we could lay legitimate claim to victory in the other three meetings, on this occasion Dundee held the upper hand. They served notice of intent right from the first minute when Dodds fired in a wind-assisted shot with Alan Main making light of an awkwardly bouncing ball. Alan was next put to the test when a McSkimming free-kick bounced in front of John Clark and the 'keeper had to react quickly to avert a disaster as John headed the ball back to him. Facing the blustery wind our early efforts on goal were limited to long range shots. Alan Main again twice came to our rescue. First he held a looping back-header from Maurice Malpas and then rushed from his charge to clear from Dodds. Dundee then squandered a chance when Keith Wright headed past from a good position. Then Alan Main brilliantly held a scorching drive by Craig from 25 yards out. Our closest shave of the half came when Alan Main, under pressure from Gordon Chisholm failed to hold a cross and Dodds' snap shot was a certain scorer until Jim McInally popped up to head the rising shot up and over the bar. Four minutes before half-time Kevin Gallacher created our best opening of the half, but shot weakly at Carson.

  • 50th League Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 1 Hearts

    With defender Dave Narey and Finn Mixu Paatelainen missing through injury, it was a youthful Tannadice eleven which met an experienced Tynecastle side. The Tynecastle men had already qualified for a UEFA Cup spot and had the advantage of a stiff breeze in the first half during which Alan Main pulled off top class saves from Colquhoun and Crabbe. Against that our best chance of that opening period came when Darren Jackson blazed a Hamish French cut back over the bar.

  • 100th Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 0 St Mirren

    Another early start and another comfortable Skol Cup success. Saints intention was clear from the very start as they tried to frustrate, fielding five men in midfield. Consequently, United enjoyed almost complete possession, but it took us until five minutes from the interval to finally break down the massed ranks of the visitors. John O'Neil slung over a cross from the left and Duncan Ferguson rapped the ball home from just inside the six yard box. If there were any lingering doubts about a United success, these were dispelled within two minutes of the restart. Money failed to hold Jim McInally's sweetly struck 25 yarder and John O'Neil was first to react, albeit, he was somewhat fortunate to score with a shot which bounced down and over the prostrate body of the Saints' goalkeeper.

  • Last Appearance - Rangers 3 - 2 Dundee United

    Our re-arranged meeting with Rangers, first postponed on 5th December, went ahead exactly a month later and proved an exciting and close fought affair as we recovered from a two goal interval deficit. Despite making a highly encouraging start to proceedings as we took the match to the home side, we fell behind after only eight minutes in what was Rangers first attack. McCoist fed Steven who in turn swept the ball out to Robertson on the left and when his first time cross came over Mark Hateley had only to nod the ball into the empty net. When Rangers went further ahead in the 23rd minute our task of taking something from the game began to look insurmountable against a side with a stammeringly fine home record. Certainly there was a fair measure of good fortune surrounding that second goal. McCoist did well to control a fast driven cross field ball, but as he stretched to get a second stab at the ball, he only succeeded in toe-ending the ball high into the air. Unfortunately for us it dropped on to the top of the crossbar and Stuart McCall was standing on the line to head the ball home.
