Profile:
Jimmy was one of Eddie Turnbull's first signings for Aberdeen in 1965 when a £10,000 fee was paid to Morton. His debut came in the Summer Cup when he scored twice against Dundee. He was honoured against the English League in 1967 and was transferred to Motherwell that same year in a deal that brought George Murray to Pittodrie.
