Profile:
An excellent signing by Ian Porterfield who was a grafter for the team although not a goalscorer. He playe an impressive 54 matches in his season at Pittodrie before leaving for family reasons. Unfotunately one of his most memorable contributions came in a penalty shootout in the 1987 League Cup Final when he missed the kick that brought about the Dons' defeat.
