Profile:
An Alex Ferguson signing from Stirling Albion, the promising midfielder had to be patient before making the breakthrough in to the Dons first team. When former Stirling boss Alec Smith took over at Pittodrie, Grant established himself as a regular in the Dons team, and was part of the double Cup winning side in 1989-90. His loyalty was rewarded with a testimonial against Everton at Pittodrie in 1996. Was sold to Hibernian for 75,000 in 1997.
After his playing days had ended, Brian took on the MacDonalds franchies at Forfar for several years, whilst continuing in football as a coach with Dundee United.
