Profile:
Alex Smith's first big signing as a replacement for Jim Leighton. Snelders was signed for 300,000 from Twente Enschede in Holland. The big keeper soon made his presence felt with a series of fine displays for the Dons. Capped for Holland during his spell with the Dons, Snelders was also part of the Dons double cup winning side in 1990. Included in the Holland squad that went to Italia 90, Snelders fell out of favour in 1995, and was sold to Rangers for around 300,000 to join as back up to Andy Goram.
