Biography


Alec started his career with Rangers in 1963, scoring twice in three games during his five years at Ibrox. After he was surprisingly released in 1968, Jerry Kerr brought the inside forward to Tannadice and he made his competitive debut against Dunfermline in the League Cup. He became a regular in the line up that season as United qualified for Europe, and was part of the squad that took part in the USA tour at the end of that season.

As United made the transition into tangerine in 1969, Alec played in the Fairs Cup ties against Newcastle United - with the opposition obviously taking note of his impressive displays. An injury picked up at the start of 1970 ruled him out for five months, but he returned to play in further European matches against Grasshoppers and Sparta Prague. In the 1st leg against Grasshoppers, he scored a late winner as United fought back from two goals down. In March 1971 Alec was transfer listed following a disagreement with Jerry Kerr, but was initially retained for the following season. However in October 1971, United brought Ian Mitchell back to Tannadice from St James Park, with Alex heading in the opposite direction in a player exchange.

Alec spent two seasons at St James' Park, but towards the end of his time there he went out on loan to Greenock Morton, eventually signing for them in the summer of 1973. In December 1975, Jim McLean paid £10,000 and exchanged Tommy Traynor to bring Alec back to Tannadice. However, after less than a year back with the Terrors he moved to Ayr United for a fee of £7,000, where he unfortunately sustained a serious injury and was forced to retire from the game aged 29. He then emigrated to Canada.

    League (Division One)

    Having drawn their first league game of the season with Rangers, United headed to Clyde hoping to build on the point gained at Tannadice to help get their league campaign off to a flyer. Ian Mitchell returned and Ian Scott dropped to the bench.

    United got their first league goal of the season after 36 minutes in this match. McHugh misjudged a cross by Reid and

    Lashing rain greeted the teams ahead of this match. The bad weather had kept many fans away and an injury kept Jim Baxter away.

    Within seconds of this match starting the goalmouth at the United end had cut up badly. Rangers had the wind at their backs in the first half and Johnstone tried to take advantage when he whistled in a thumping effort that flew wide.Then Greig had a go but his shot

    In a section comprising Celtic, Dumbarton and Arbroath, we had to win at Boghead to give us any hope of qualifying, but the picture was bleak at half-time. After a bright start, we were taken aback by an lan Wallace header. It took us until the 69th minute to get back on level terms. From a free-kick just outside the box George Fleming teed the ball up for Ale


  • 12. Last Appearance

    Ayr Utd 1 - 4 Dundee United
    League (Premier Division)

    Ayr show little respect for their visitors' top of the league status by almost scoring in 90 seconds. Robertson shoots from point blank range to beat McAlpine, but Kopel blocks the shot on the line. The Tannadice men get a penalty in seven minutes when Fleming pulls down Wallace - and the opening goal. McAlpine's hard spot-kick is brilliantly pushed out by Sproat, but Tom McAdam beats everyone in
