Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Neil was born on this date in Bellshill.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Neil had been with Rangers, Sion and FC Lorient-Bretagne Sud before he joined United on a short-term deal. His contract was not renewed at the end of the season and he then moved to Mainz.

  • We gained a place in the quarter finals with this narrow victory over a First Division side which shaded the play territorially, but in terms of chances all the scoring was squeezed into a five minute period either side of the half-time whistle. Neil Murray, making his debut, put us ahead with a controlled volley from 25 yards, but Walker hooked home the equaliser shortly after the re-start. Magnus Skoldmark with his first ever goal for the club sent us through with a well taken header from Craig Easton's cross within three minutes of Ayr's goal.

  • Last Appearance - Hearts 4 - 1 Dundee United

    The least said about this display the better. Manager Paul Sturrock was one of the lucky ones being abroad on a scouting mission. We were simply never at the races against a rampant Hearts side. Ironically, in the wake of our heaviest defeat of the season, Dunfermline's defeat at Dens Park confirmed our Premier status for next season.
