Profile

Squad Number: 3
Position: Left Back
Date of Birth: Thursday, October 17, 1968
Birthplace: Aberdeen
Nationality: Scottish
Height: 5' 11

Emerged through the ranks at Pittodrie to solve the long-standing left back problem at Pittodrie. First made his presence in the same side as McLeish and Miller in 1987 before making the left back position his own. Nicknamed Beano by the Fanzine, The Northern Light.
Was the subject of a transfer to bitter rivals rangers in 1991 after the Dons had lost the title to the Ibrox club. A tribunal set the fee at £970,000. After tasting success at Ibrox, Robertson moved to Leeds Utd. Injury forced a premature retirement from playing and a move into coaching, including spells of management at Elgin City and Montrose. Following this he took up coaching in the USA at Phoenix FC and in 2017 moved to Real Kashmir in India where he became the subject of much interest and featured in a BBC documentary programme in 2021 about his adventures with his club.
In the 1921/22 New Year's Honours, David was awarded a British Empire Medal in recognition of his services to the community in Kashmir and in helping to foster good relations between India and the UK.
