Profile:
Another of the original "Fergie fledglings" that was to play a huge part in the Dons success of the 80's. A tough, competitive midfielder, Simpson proved an ideal minder for the more subtle skills of Strachan and Weir, and was also capped for Scotland while at Pittodrie. Played in the Dons side that won the ECWC in 1983, and eventually moved to Newcastle in 1989, after an 11-year stint at Pittodrie. Made almost 300 appearances for the Dons. Rejoined the club in June 2001 to head up the Dons Community coaching initiative, later becoming head of the Youth Academy.
