Biography


Grant was a regular in United reserves from August 1990, making his first team debut against an Australian XI at Tannadice that same month. He had to wait nearly two years before making his competitive debut against Dunfermline in March 1992, but then played regularly through the end of that season and into the 1992-93 campaign, gaining several Scotland Under-21 caps.

The midfielder had sporadic bursts in the first team over the next two seasons, which included United's Scottish Cup victory in May 1994 and their relegation from the Premier Division a year later. Grant had his best season at United in 1995-96, helping the Club to regain top flight status from the First Division, and collected a runners-up medal in the League Challenge Cup in November 1995. Playing in the second string more often than in the first team over his seven years at Tannadice, Grant completed a Law degree at the University of Dundee during his time with United. After falling out of favour under Tommy McLean, he made rare appearances in the first team during the 1996-97 season, and in November 1997 he accepted a transfer to Huddersfield Town for a fee quoted at £100,000.

Grant spent three seasons at the Kirklees Stadium, before returning to Scotland in August 2000 for a short spell with Clydebank. He then played for Alloa Athletic for a season, then Montrose where he stayed for two years. He then joined Brechin City in July 2003, where he won the Second Division title in 2005, before retiring in 2007, later taking up a coaching position at Glebe Park.
