Biography


Originally a youth player with Rangers, Nicky made the switch to Aberdeen at age 15 before signing professional terms with the Pittodrie club in 2009. After a spell on loan at Peterhead, he left Aberdeen to join the Second Division side permanently for the 2010-11 season.

The following year he made a switch to SPFL Championship contenders Queen of the South, where he remained for two seasons. Despite not scoring a single goal in his first season, the following year Nicky netted 41 goals in 46 games for the Doonhamers during the 2012-13 campaign, and his form attracted significant attention. In May 2013, he returned to Rangers on a three year deal, spending one year in League One before returning to the Championship for the final two seasons of his contract. He notched 24 goals in 107 appearances for the Glasgow club and left at the end of his deal.

He then moved to English League one club Bury in 2016 for a short lived spell before returning to Scotland to join Dunfermline Athletic. In two seasons with the Pars he scored 37 goals in 78 games. Opting not to extend his current deal, Nicky left East End Park to join United on two year deal in May 2018, and he scored on his debut against Arbroath in July. Early in the season, an ankle injury ruled him out for two months and he found it hard to force his way back into the starting eleven. Further problems with his achilles tendons saw him miss out most of the winter, but on his return to the first team he grabbed eight goals in fourteen matches to help United secure second place in the Championship and a place in the Play-Offs, with Nicky finishing as the Clubs joint top scorer in all competitions.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Nicky was born on this date in Bellshill.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Originally a youth player with Rangers, Nicky made the switch to Aberdeen at age 15 before signing professional terms with the Pittodrie club in 2009. After a spell on loan at Peterhead, he left Aberdeen to join the Second Division side permanently for the 2010-11 season.

  • United commenced their 2018/19 campaign with a penalty shoot-out defeat against Arbroath in the Betfred Cup after a rather lacklustre 1-1 draw. The turnover in players since last season was illustrated by the six debutants in the starting line-up, with new signings Ben Siegrist, Frederick Frans, Sam Wardrop, Fraser Aird, Christoph Rabitisch and Nicky Clark all making their first United appearances. In addition, young midfielder Declan Glass was handed his first start for the club.

  • 50th Appearance - Dundee 0 - 2 Dundee United

    A packed Dens Park saw both teams set off at a frantic pace with plenty of tackles and free-kicks in the opening exchanges. An early booking inside two minutes for United’s Butcher set the tone for the early stages of the game. The home side started brightly with McDaid down the left causing plenty of trouble for United. The midfielder had the first chance of the game but his cross flew by Siegrist’s post. The frantic pace continued for the first 10 minutes with little composure from either side. The tension in the build-up to the game clearly carried onto the pitch. Appéré and McMullan were the early pace setters for United but couldn’t make a way through the dogged Dundee defence. In the 13th minute, United’s first chance came when a foul on Clark by Mackie gave the away side a free-kick 20 yards from goal. Clark’s effort was on target but couldn’t find its way past the scramble of defenders. United had the bulk of the possession in the opening 20 minutes compared to Dundee but showed little in the way of clear-cut chances. The Dark Blues began to create more openings after 25 minutes as both Dorrans and McDaid came more into the game. The first corner of the game went to Dundee, courtesy of McDaid, but the resultant set piece was easily cleared by United. With so much at stake in the game it was a case of neither side settling to produce any real quality in the match. A win for either side could be the difference between a three or a nine point gap. Plenty to play for, and no side were prepared to give an inch. Whilst the forward lines of both sides were seeing little opportunity, the defences were giving little away. McMullan continued to impress down United’s right wing, and the tricky winger’s run and cross in the 35th minute was unlucky not to be met by Shankland. Dundee had clearly singled out McMullan as United’s main threat, with both Mackie and McDaid doubling up to thwart the United winger. Neither side were looking comfortable on the ball and possession was being continually passed back between the two sides. Plenty of aggression but little quality from either team. As the first-half came to a close, the biggest statistic was the five bookings shown by referee Steven McLean. Little in the way of actual chances but plenty of hustle and bustle by both sets of players.
