It didn’t take me long to work out who was the best player I saw wearing the colours of either Dundee or United in my time in the city.
Regular readers of my views online or in this column will know the answer, too.
The most technically-gifted player I’ve witnessed was Greg Stewart.
Without wanting to sound like I’m having a go, Dark Blues fans should feel lucky they saw a player of his grace and skill for two-and-a-bit seasons.
I’d be shocked if he didn’t make a success of his time in England. He is too good a player not to.
The problem he has is that he isn’t up to the level of his team-mates fitness wise. What does that say about Scottish football by the way?
The player who ran him close was United hero Johnny Russell, who was also a class act.
He was capable of scoring any kind of goal, from anywhere. And he’s taken that down to England.
But for that drop of a shoulder, a swipe of his wand of a left peg, Stewart wins hands down.
