 13/01/07 SPL vs. Rangers (A)  0 - 5


Biography


A youth product of Cherry Orchard amateurs in his native Ireland, Jon signed his first professional contract with Stockport County in 1998. Over the next seven years, he spent time on loan at a Bury and Grimsby Town, flirting with first team football at Edgeley Park before moving to Hartlepool United in 2005. Jon improved his scoring rate at Hartlepool but ultimately found himself out on loan again before he was allowed to move to United for an undisclosed fee in 2007.

Injury hampered his first two seasons under Craig Levein at Tannadice, returning just two goals in as many seasons, and it looked as though the striker would move on. A return to the first team in 2008-09, however, saw Jon return to form and once fully fit and a regular in the line up, he returned nine goals, and thirteen the following season, finishing as the Club's top scorer in league competition. He capped off his 2009-10 season by collecting a Scottish Cup winners medal in May.

The following season, he scored a further twelve goals for the Club and was named as the Club's captain, however 2011-12 was undoubtedly his most successful as a forward, returning twenty-two goals with a goals-to-game ratio of 51%.

Much less prolific in his final season at Tannadice under new manager Jackie McNamara, Jon began playing as a centre half until his contract expired at the end of 2012-13, agreeing a pre-contract with Rangers on May 24th, 2013. Upon his departure, he had become the second highest scoring non-British player in the Club's history, with seventy-three goals on record.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Jon was born on this date in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    A youth product of Cherry Orchard amateurs in his native Ireland, Jon signed his first professional contract with Stockport County in 1998. Over the next seven years, he spent time on loan at a Bury and Grimsby Town, flirting with first team football at Edgeley Park before moving to Hartlepool United in 2005. Jon improved his scoring rate at Hartlepool but ultimately found himself out on loan again before he was allowed to move to United for an undisclosed fee in 2007.

  • Rangers fans left this match wondering how Walter Smith had transformed the Ibrox side in only his first fixture in charge. In truth, United marked his homecoming by gifting him three points after dominating much of the first half.

  • Jon Daly struck a sensational injury time goal which earned United a thoroughly deserved point after an early second half Nakamura free kick had looked to be enough to win the game for Celtic. United had been the better side in the first half and had also lost Barry Robson late on following a red card.

  • 50th Appearance - Dundee United 2 - 1 Celtic

    After early doubts about the game going ahead the lunchtime kick off took place as scheduled as both teams lined up for what promised to be an absorbing 90 minutes. The hosts knew that a win would take them within two points of their opponents and in doing so set them up very nicely for the rest of the season. United however had not recorded a single victory over Celtic since August 1999.

  • 50th League Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 1 Aberdeen

    United’s festive woes continued going down to a 1-0 home defeat by Aberdeen. A goal in the first half from Charlie Mulgrew was the difference and despite United creating the bulk of the chances, hitting the woodwork twice in the closing stages and having an extra man for the final 25 minutes, the visitors held on for all three points.

  • 100th Appearance - Dundee United 2 - 0 Motherwell

    After a frustrating draw against Ross County in the cup on Saturday Peter Houston made two changes to the starting line up which face Motherwell in a rearranged fixture. David Robertson replaced his namesake Scott in central midfield while David Goodwillie returned from a suspension to take his place again up front. The other absentee was Barry Douglas who failed to make the squad following a head knock during the weekend game so Johnny Russell was played out wide as United began with what looked an attacking formation. After hardly featuring all season through injury there was a boost for the Terrors as Craig Conway returned to take a place on the bench. Following the recent adverse weather this was the first league game at Tannadice since the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on the 13th of November with the hosts looking to continue a run of 5 games without defeat.

  • 100th League Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 1 Dunfermline

    Newly-promoted Dunfermline Athletic were the visitors at Tannadice in United’s third home game of the new season. With Peter Houston’s side still looking for their first home win and following on from a 5-1 drubbing at Parkhead the previous week the pressure was on United to get back to winning ways. Houston reacted to the heavy defeat at the hands of Celtic by making two changes to his starting 11: in came Barry Douglas and new signing Gavin Gunning in place of Keith Watson and Scott Allan. It was also a return to Tannadice for former United striker Jim McIntyre who was now manager of Dunfermline.

  • For the fourth consecutive game Peter Houston named an unchanged starting line up for the visit of Aberdeen. New signing Richie Ryan was listed as a substitute at a packed Tannadice.

  • 50th League Goal - Kilmarnock 3 - 1 Dundee United

    With Johnny Russell’s red card from the Dundee Derby downgraded to a yellow, Gary Mackay-Steven for Michael Gardyne was the only change from the side that won last Sunday’s derby as United looked to extend their winning start in the league to three victories, something they haven’t achieved for 22 years. Hosts Kilmarnock made four changes from the side that lost 2-1 at Motherwell as they looked for their first win of the season. Injured Scottish internationalist keeper Cammy Bell was replaced by Welshman Kyle Letheren, while Danny Racchi, Borja Perez, Rory McKenzie came in for Matthew Kennedy, Rory Boulding and Rory McKenzie.

  • Jackie McNamara made two changes to the starting line-up which had come so close to securing a Scottish Cup Final place - losing their semi-final 4-3 after extra time to Celtic. Brian McLean and Stuart Armstrong both started for United, replacing Keith Watson and Mark Millar.

  • 200th Appearance - Ross County 1 - 0 Dundee United

    The Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall had been witness to rain, hail, snow and sunshine in the run up to this evening’s game. Thankfully the weather had settled by kick off and although cold, the conditions were near perfect for this top 6 encounter. With the season nearing an end and both sides still capable of clinching a Europa League spot, an exciting match was anticipated. Both managers elected to stick with the same side that had started their previous match. Ross County hadn’t won a league game since they defeated Celtic back in March. United were looking to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat to Motherwell.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 4 Celtic

    United made three changes from the team that beat Inverness. Johnny Russell, Ryan Gauld and Ryan Dow dropped to the bench. In their place returned Mark Millar, Rory Boulding and Barry Douglas who was available again after his suspension. With defensive options limited due to long term injuries, Jon Daly was again asked to play in central defence.
