Profile:
Signed for the Dons in a record Aberdeen transfer in 1970 for a fee of 50,000. As he was cup-tied, Murray missed out on the Dons Cup winning side of 1970, but the cultured midfielder was a vital cog in the Dons machine that went agonisingly close to taking the title in 1971. Capped for Scotland against Belgium at Pittodrie in 1971, Murray was also Aberdeen captain before a dispute with the club in 1973 resulted in a transfer to Celtic. Moved in to management after his playing career, and must hold some sort of record when he was in charge of Forfar for only 3 days.
