The 59-year-old Glasgow man, most recently manager of Greenock Morton, was considered the outstanding candidate among the array who applied to be Sons manager after Stevie Aitken's departure.

He has been nearly 40 years in Scottish football, as player and manager. He first turned professional as a player with Celtic in 1979, then moved to Greenock Morton.

His career developed greatly there, and in 1985 he was named Scottish PFA Players' Player of the Year despite Morton being relegated.

He moved to Dundee, only for his career apparently to be ended by injury aged only 28.

After a short spell as manager of Falkirk he made a playing comeback with Dundee before joining Partick Thistle.

He went back to Dundee for a third spell in 1992 as player/assistant manager to Simon Stainrod, then succeeded him to become player-manager in the autumn of 1993.

His career has taken him to the higher levels of the game, including spells as coach at Chelsea, Portsmouth and Norwich City.

He boasts vast experience of management, having also been in charge of Clyde, Brechin City, Hibernian and Falkirk.
