Profile:
"Bumper" as he was affectionately known by the Dons faithful shot to fame almost immediately with the Dons. Following his move from Cambuslang juniors in 1970, Graham played in the Dons side that won the Scottish Cup in 1970, six weeks after making his first team debut. The rookie 17-year-old winger played his part, and went on to become a firm favourite at Pittodrie. Capped at U-23 level while at the Dons, Graham went on to earn 10 caps for Scotland after his suspension from Scotland after the Copenhagen affair in 1975. Transferred to Leeds United in 1977 for 125,000.
