However, under the guidance of Alex Ferguson, McGhee forged a memorable Pittodrie career, and was part of the Dons team of the 80's that carried all before them at home and abroad. Made over 250 appearances, scoring 100 goals before a 280,000 move to SV Hamburg in the German Bundesliga. Another Dons international, McGhee scored against England at Hampden in 1984, before leaving the Dons.
