Biography


Recognised as the successor to all-time record goalscorer Peter McKay, Johnny was with St Joseph’s when he signed for United on a provisional form. He made an early impression scoring all four goals in a 4-2 win against Stenhousemuir, spending the latter part of 1952-53 at Brechin City on loan. His United appearances were infrequent in his first four seasons, due largely to the in-form Peter McKay and Johnny’s two years of national service. After he was demobbed in June 1955, he became a Tannadice legend. During the 1955-56 season, he finished as the Club's top goalscorer with a tally of 43 goals - a record that still stands. He was top of the scoring charts at Tannadice again in the next season. His form continued unabated in 1957-58 until he put in a transfer request, leaving to join Clyde in December for a fee of £5,000. At Clyde he showed the same goalscoring form he had at United and the following year he scored the only goal of the Scottish Cup Final to secure the trophy for the Shawfield side.

He may have played during what were lean times for United in the second tier of Scottish football, but Johnny was unmerciful in his attack on opposing defenders and his consistency and form in front of goal was nothing short of sensational. In January 2009, he was inducted into the Dundee United Hall of Fame.
