Biography


Billy began his professional career at Chelsea but made his senior debut whilst on loan with Partick Thistle in 1987. After making only three appearances at Stamford Bridge, he was transferred to Dundee in August 1989, winning the League Challenge Cup in 1990 and helped them win promotion to the topflight in 1992.

In January 1994 he moved to St Johnstone for the Perth club’s record transfer fee of £400,000, signed by former United legend Paul Sturrock who was now manager at McDiarmid Park. However, by the end of that season St Johnstone were relegated from the Premier Division along with Billy’s former side Dundee. After just six months in Perth, he signed for Aberdeen, again for a club record of £800,000, where he spent four successful years, collecting a League Cup winners medal in 1995 as he scored in the final against his former club Dundee at Hampden. He received international recognition, gaining his first Scotland cap against Latvia in October 1996.

A surprising move in September 1998 lead to Billy joining his former boss Paul Sturrock, this time at Tannadice, when he joined United in a swap deal that took Robbie Winters north to Aberdeen, with United also receiving a cash adjustment reputed to be around £700,000. He made his debut against Dunfermline Athletic two days later, coming on as a substitute at Tannadice, but it was his next match that made him an instant hit with the fans. In his first start for United, he scored a hat-trick against his former club St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, and his resurgence with United lead to an immediate recall to the Scotland squad. In his first international match in over a year, he scored twice against Estonia, and again against the Faroe Islands just days later. He went on to complete his first season at Tannadice as top scorer with an impressive 17 goals.

In season 1999-00 his goalscoring form continued, netting ten goals before December, with a knack for scoring against his former clubs. After impressing in Scotland’s European Championship play-off matches against England, Rangers came in with a bid that the Club could not turn down, and Billy left for Ibrox for a reported fee of £1.3m. Although leaving halfway through the season, he finished the campaign as the Club’s top scorer, with United never really recovering from losing their talisman player that won eleven of his 26 international caps whilst at Tannadice.

Billy helped the Glasgow side win the Scottish Championship and the Scottish Cup in his first season and collected a League Cup winners medal in 2002. He was constantly linked with a return to Tannadice, and at the turn of the year during the 2002-03 season he came back to United as part of a deal that saw Steven Thompson depart for Ibrox. He marked his comeback with a goal against Kilmarnock in January 2003 and finished as second top scorer in the next 2003-04 season, behind Jim McIntyre. By 2004 he took more of a supporting role in midfield and became involved in coaching. Appointed Assistant Manager under Gordon Chisholm in June 2005, he took charge of the first team as caretaker manager for one match against Falkirk in January 2006. After the arrival of Craig Brewster as manager, Billy left for Partick Thistle until the end of the season, later re-joining Gordon Chisholm at Queen of the South and Dundee.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Billy was born on this date in Old Cumnock.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Billy began his professional career at Chelsea but made his senior debut whilst on loan with Partick Thistle in 1987. After making only three appearances at Stamford Bridge, he was transferred to Dundee in August 1989, winning the League Challenge Cup in 1990 and helped them win promotion to the topflight in 1992.

  • Pre-match talk was all about Billy Dodds arrival and Robbie Winters departure to Aberdeen but some things stay the same as we drew with the Pars for the fifth consecutive match! Billy Dodds did come on as a substitute but was unable to change the course of the game.

  • A dream hat-trick by Billy Dodds registered our first win of the season as Paul Sturrock made a swift return to McDiarmid Park.

  • Lars Hirschfeld continued in goal in place of the injured Tony Bullock and was determined to build on his performance against Clyde in midweek. The back four lined up with Stuart Duff and Alan Archibald flanking the central duo of David McCracken and Chris Innes. Mark Wilson had been passed fit and started the game at right midfield with Grant Brebner, Derek McInnes and Barry Robson completing the midfield select. Up front Jim McIntyre was partnered by Andy McLaren.

  • Last Appearance - Kilmarnock 3 - 0 Dundee United

    In a less than inspiring first half from both sides, the first goal threats came from the visitors. Crawford’s 13th minute cross was blocked by Hay and, from the resulting corner, Duff’s effort on goal was blocked by the Killie defence.
