  • Date of Birth

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Allan was a schoolboy international who joined United on an 'S' form from Hutchison Vale. He was quickly called up for United reserves, becoming part of the Scotland youth squad by season 1985-86. During his eight years with United, Allan was a regular in the second string but he only turned out in the first team occasionally. In October 1992, he left United to join Hearts, along with £215,000 in exchange for Scott Crabbe.

  • Apart from the result itself, this was a highly satisfying evening. The three youngsters drafted into the side — Brian Welsh, Harry Curran and Allan Preston — all played significant parts in winning an obviously potentially difficult match given Falkirks desperation for the points.

  • From Bucherest the action switched to Pittodrie, a ground where we always do well and once again we picked up a point and after equalising may well have won the match.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 2 - 3 Rangers

    After Extra-time our cup record against Rangers is, to say the least, poor, but this was a very close contest and strangely there was little evidence of a titanic battle in prospect at the end of an opening 45 minutes that was by and large an insipid affair. True Ian Ferguson had hit the base of the post, but other than that the half had been devoid of incident.
