Profile:
Signed as a long term replacement for Gordon Strachan, Alex Ferguson once again plundered St Mirren and paid the Paisley club 100,000 for his services. An effective wide midfield player, Stark was a prolific goal taker, and with his natural ability these qualities made Stark a valuable asset at Pittodrie, which was never fully appreciated in some quarters. Joined Celtic after leaving Pittodrie.
