Squad Numbers




February 11th, 2018
Aberdeen 4 - 2 Dundee United

Scottish Cup (5th Round)


  • Date of Birth

    Grant was born on this date in Bellshill.

  • Signed For Dundee United

  • United were eliminated from this year’s Scottish Cup after a 4-2 defeat by Premiership high flyers Aberdeen at a freezing Pittodrie. Csaba Laszlo made three changes from United’s previous game, the 3-0 home defeat to Morton two weeks earlier. Craig Slater, Matty Smith and new signing from Hamilton Grant Gillespie came into the team at the expense of Thomas Mikkelsen, Scott McDonald, and the injured Paul Quinn. United’s injury woes continued with Quinn’s absence forcing another defensive reshuffle with Mark Durnan being the club’s only fit centre half. Gillespie had to make his United debut in an unfamiliar right back role with Stewart Murdoch being forced to play as a makeshift central defender.

  • United lost further ground in the Championship with a 2-1 defeat against play off rivals Livingston. Although the fact that United lost due to a last-minute goal would suggest that they were slightly unlucky, in truth the defeat was well deserved as United were outplayed for the vast majority of the game.

  • Last Appearance - Livingston 1 - 1 Dundee United

    United’s season ended in disappointment as a 1-1 draw at the Tony Macaroni Arena was insufficient to overturn the first leg deficit to Livingston. The aggregate defeat consigned United to a third year in the Scottish Championship, and on balance the side from West Lothian fully deserved to go through to the next round to take on Partick Thistle.
