Biography


Joe began his career at Aberdeen, making his senior debut at the age of 17 as a substitute against United in December 1984. He became a regular in the successful Aberdeen team of the time, winning a Scottish Cup winners medal in 1986. In November 1987, he signed for Celtic for a reported £650,000 - a Scottish transfer record at the time. During almost six years with the Glasgow side he won a Scottish League championship and two Scottish Cup winners medals, with Joe scoring the winner in the 1989 final. An Under-21 Scotland international, he returned to Aberdeen in July 1993 and remained there for five years, collecting a League Cup winners medal in 1995 with a victory over Dundee at Hampden Park.

Released by the Dons, Joe signed for United in the summer of 1998 and made a scoring debut as a substitute against St Mirren in a friendly. His competitive debut came in the opening League fixture against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, and he featured regularly throughout the season, with a third of his matches coming from the bench. His two goals for United came in two different matches against his former club at Pittodrie.

Joe was released and spent time with Parramatta Power in Australia, returning to Raith Rovers for a short spell at the end of 2001. He quickly joined Clydebank, leaving them in June 2002 to return to Australia, joining North Sydney. In May 2005 he was back in Scotland as player/assistant manager at Clyde, taking over as manager there in August 2006, taking them to the League Challenge Cup final. He took the assistant manager's job at Dundalk in 2009.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Joe began his career at Aberdeen, making his senior debut at the age of 17 as a substitute against United in December 1984. He became a regular in the successful Aberdeen team of the time, winning a Scottish Cup winners medal in 1986.

An Under-21 Scotland international, he returned to Aberdeen in July 1993 and remained there for five years, collecting a League Cup winners medal in 1995 with a victory over Dundee at Hampden Park.

  • Nothing wrong with the start to the new season as we dominated and twice had the ball in the net. Unfortunately, the linesman and then the referee ruled both were offside to dent our confidence.

  • Our biggest and most convincing win of the season. Even before we went ahead, we should have been two goals to the good! Kjell Olofsson prodded in the opener from fellow Swede Lars Zetterlund's pass to give us the lead.

  • After Billy Dodds headed us in front nine minutes from the break, a whirlwind spell of three goals in as many minutes buried Aberdeen with Joe Miller, Kjell Olofsson and Billy Dodds all finding the net. Thereafter we cruised to our fourth win of the season over the Pittodrie men, recording our biggest win of the season.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 2 Dundee

    A highly disappointing derby from which we can have no quibble about the outcome. Irvine headed Dundee in front midway through the second half and Grady's second came in the very last minute. A header from Jason de Vos header which was cleared off the line by Miller two minutes from time was the only effort we had on target in the ninety minutes, illustrating the poverty of our performance.
