Biography


The son of former Hearts and United player Malcolm Robertson, Sandy came through the youth system at Rangers, making his first team debut in 1989 aged 18. A promising young player who was seen by many to be a future Scotland star, he ultimately failed to make the grade at Ibrox and was sold to Coventry City in January 1994.

After failing to break into the first team at Highfield Road, Sandy, along with Rangers and Coventry teammate Steven Pressley, arrived at Tannadice in July 1995 in a joint deal worth £1million - £250,000 of that towards the young midfielder. Making his first appearance in a friendly against Forfar Athletic, he made his competitive debut against Morton in the opening League game of the season.

Sandy was with United for two years but was rarely seen in the first team line-up, more often appearing for the reserves. He was transfer listed in January 1997 and released at the end of the season. he had spells with Airdrieonians, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Livingston and Clydebank, as well as a duration in Australia with Morwell Falcons and Joondalup. In 2001 he returned to Scotland with Cowdenbeath and was later with Berwick Rangers and Raith Rovers.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Sandy was born on this date in Edinburgh.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    The son of former Hearts and United player Malcolm Robertson, Sandy came through the youth system at Rangers, making his first team debut in 1989 aged 18. A promising young player who was seen by many to be a future Scotland star, he ultimately failed to make the grade at Ibrox and was sold to Coventry City in January 1994.

  • Morton's message to United playing their first match out with the top flight of Scottish football for 35 years was "welcome to the First Division" as they gave us an early sample of how hard a task lies ahead of us this season. But given that the United line-up contained all five summer signings, there were some encouraging signs, particularly as five players were still suspended!

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 0 Hearts

    Pre-match interest centred mainly round the possible appearance of the two Scandinavians in United's side and when the teams were announced the surprise was not the presence of the pair, but the fact that Swede Kjell Olofsson was listed under his own name, the striker having signed a short term contract on the morning of the match. Norwegian Erik Perdersen, however, was listed as a trialist in a United starting eleven which showed a whole host of changes from the one which had drawn at East End Park.
