Biography

Malcolm appeared in the 1970 Junior Cup Final for Penicuik Athletic before signing for Raith Rovers in 1971. After four years at Starks Park he moved to Ayr United for two seasons before signing for Hearts for £25,000 in 1977. During his time at Tynecastle the left winger was involved in two First Division promotion winning sides, making over 120 appearances before leaving to sign for Canadian side Toronto Blizzard in January 1981.

A year later he returned to Scotland to sign a short term contract for United midway through the 1981/82 season, and made his debut as a substitute in a League match against Hibs in February. He made the starting eleven three days later against Airdrie at Broomfield, but was released by the end of the season. Malcolm then joined Hibs briefly before moving to Malta to play with Hamrun Spartans.

Malcolm's son Sandy also played for United.

    Malcolm appeared in the 1970 Junior Cup Final for Penicuik Athletic before signing for Raith Rovers in 1971. After four years at Starks Park he moved to Ayr United for two seasons before signing for Hearts for £25,000 in 1977.

  • In a dress rehearsal for our Scottish Cup tie at Tannadice a week later, we visited a rain-soaked Easter Road deprived of the services of Paul Sturrock, a victim of the flu. Graeme Payne was brought in for his first start since October, and Derek Murray came in for Derek Stark.

  • Last Appearance - Airdrie 2 - 0 Dundee United

    United's second rescheduled fixture from the enforced winter shutdown saw a midweek visit to Broomfield, as United looked to make ground on 3rd placed Rangers, 3 points above the Terrors. Manager Jim McLean made two changes, with Iain Phillip replacing Derek Murray, and new signing Malcolm Robertson swapping places with Graeme Payne on the bench.
