Profile:
Signed from Falkirk as a promising central defender by Alex Ferguson in 1985, and in his early days played a supporting role to McLeish and Miller in the Dons team. After making the breakthrough, Irvine on to become a firm favourite with the Aberdeen support. A self confessed Aberdeen fan who wore his heart on his sleeve, scored the decisive penalty that won the 1990 Scottish Cup for the Dons. Released in 1997 after receiving a testimonial against Wimbledon. One of the abiding memories for Dons' fans was that Brian played in goal on more than one occasion, even saving a penalty at Easter Road. Retired from playing after a spell with Ross County.
