Profile:
McGill arrived at Pittodrie in 1931 after a spell in the States. "Oor Ba" McGill soon became a big favourite at Pittodrie and after an extended spell at left-back, McGill was honoured by the Scottish League. Kilmarnock born McGill was unfortunate to miss out on the Dons big day at Hampden in 1937 before joining Glentoran in 1938.

Later returned to the USA where he lived till he passed away in Fall River, Massachusetts, in 1988.
