Profile:
Nicknamed Spammer, John arrived at Pittodrie in 1972, and was part of the successful Dons reserve side that include Willie Miller and Joe Smith. Originally a winger, McMaster was converted in to a midfield player of great stature. A master of the long ball, an exquisite left foot was the scourge of many opponents. Awarded a testimonial in 1985, and a full house bears testimony to his popularity at Pittodrie. A bad injury in the 1980 European Cup-tie against Liverpool curtailed a promising career, and McMaster remains one of the greatest uncapped Dons.
