Biography


A pupil at Harris Academy, Derek had played with Butterburn Youth Club in his early years before signing briefly with Hibernian on an 'S' form. He was later signed by United from Lochee United where he has been playing as a teenager.

Derek first broke into Jim McLean's first team set up in 1974 and became a regular by 1977, mostly moving between the first eleven and the substitutes' bench. Although he was not involved in either of United's League Cup final victories in 1980 and 1981, he did play in several of the earlier rounds of both campaigns.

In September 1981, Derek left United to join the recently relegated Heart of Midlothian for a fee of £55,000 just a couple of months into the 1981-82 season. Although he held down a regular place in the Hearts side, the club were faced with financial difficulties when they failed to gain instant promotion back to the top flight, and Derek was sold to fellow First Division side St Johnstone for £65,000 just a year later. He spent 4 seasons at Muirton Park, taking on a Player-Coach role before moving on to Brechin City in 1986 where he finished his playing career.
