Profile:
Dodds became the Dons record buy in 1994 when Willie Miller paid St Johnstone 800,000 for his services. Was top score with the Dons in each of his four years at Pittodrie. It was Dodd's vital goals in May 1995 that helped Aberdeen survive relegation for the first time. Sold to Dundee United, much to the chagrin of Aberdeen's supporters, by Alex Miller as part of the Robbie winters deal and subsequently moved to Rangers in 2000 before winding down his playing career with a return to Dundee United and finally (briefly) Partick Thistle. After retiring from playing Billy moved into football management and punditry with the BBC.
