Neil came through the youth system at Rangers, but after making just one first team appearance he was released in the summer of 1995.

United manager Billy Kirkwood had coached Neil during his time as youth coach with Rangers, and brought the right sided defender to Tannadice, where he made his debut against Morton in the opening League match of the season. He made only a handful of first team appearances, all before October, and spent most of the season in the reserves. His goal against Cowdenbeath in the League Challenge Cup proved to be his only in senior football.

Released in May 1996 he joined junior side Petershill, later moving to Rutherglen Glencairn.

League (First Division)


  • Date of Birth

    Neil was born on this date in Glasgow.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Neil came through the youth system at Rangers, but after making just one first team appearance he was released in the summer of 1995.

  • Morton's message to United playing their first match out with the top flight of Scottish football for 35 years was "welcome to the First Division" as they gave us an early sample of how hard a task lies ahead of us this season. But given that the United line-up contained all five summer signings, there were some encouraging signs, particularly as five players were still suspended!

  • This was a comfortable stroll in the sun against the side which finished thirty-ninth out of forty clubs last season! There was only one threatening moment from the Fifers. That came two minutes after United had gone in front. Yardley turned away from the United defence to angle in a shot which Ally Maxwell parried into the path of Scott who slotted the ball into an empty net. The stand-side linesman, however, raised his flag to indicate that the centre was offside and with that went any Fife hopes of causing an upset of any sort. United's early domination should have brought a goal in the 7th minute, but Rab Shannon's header from a Paddy Connolly cross drifted past the far post. United eventually went ahead in the 26th minute when Paddy Connolly was fouled by Malloy 22 yards out and Billy McKinlay's free-kick deflected off the defensive wall to leave Russell helpless. Paddy Connolly was again involved in the second goal. Russell reached but couldn't hold his flick, Robbie Winters headed the ball back and Neil Caldwell rammed the ball high into the roof of the net.

  • Last Appearance - Clydebank 0 - 1 Dundee United

    United dominated the opening stages and the Bankies had a narrow escape in the 12th minute. Paul Walker fed Ben Honeyman who whipped in a shot which Matthews couldn't hold and only Currie's intervention as he scrambled the ball away for a comer prevented Paul Walker giving United the lead. Honeyman then shot narrowly over. The young United newcomers were doing themselves no harm at all with Stuart Gilmour firing fractionally wide after a 20 minutes which had been totally dominated by the Tangerines.
