Biography


As a boy, Ian played for Errol Rovers, a youth football team set up by his father, before coming through the youth system at Dundee, where he made his professional debut during the 1976-77 season. Starting off as a forward, he helped Dundee win promotion to the Premier Division in 1979. In February 1980, he moved to Rangers for £210,000, what was then a record transfer fee between two Scottish clubs.

In his first season at Ibrox, he played in the 1981 Scottish Cup final against United at Hampden, seeing his last minute penalty saved by Hamish McAlpine, but collected a winners medal after Rangers won the replay. The following season, he scored the decisive goal in the 1982 League Cup final - again against United. He collected a runners-up medal after losing to Celtic in the 1982 League Cup final, but collected another League Cup winners medal in 1984 - completing an ironic hat-trick against United as Rangers won 1-0.

He was first linked with United in May 1985 when it was rumoured he was coming to Tannadice in a swap deal involving Ralph Milne. That never happened of course, but three months later the midfielder was signed for £70,000 and made his debut on 17th August 1985 against Aberdeen. He played a major role in United's midfield for the next three years, particularly on the European stage. In season 1986-87, he was influential in the side that won through to the UEFA Cup final, laying on the free-kick for John Clark's famous goal against Barcelona, and scored in the last minute against Borrussia Monchengladbach to confirm United's place in the final against IFK Gothenburg. Unfortunately, Ian was on the losing side in that final, as well as collecting a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup final against St Mirren.

Having previously won youth and Under-21 caps, Ian was one of five United players selected for the original Scotland squad to play Belgium in April 1987, but he was not in the final line up and never gaining that deserved international cap. Having played in all of United's matches on the way to the 1988 Scottish Cup final, he missed out on a place in the line-up for the match at Hampden, as United narrowly lost to Celtic.

He was transfer listed in October 1988 after requesting a move, and shortly afterwards he left to join Ipswich Town for around £200,000. He spent three years with Ipswich Town, returning to Scotland to join St Johnstone in August 1991. He then moved on to Brechin City as player/manager and finally to Raith Rovers, where he was part of the 1994-95 team that won the League Cup on penalties against Celtic - his last game as a professional player.
