What a character. A genius of a football manager.
I turned Jim and Dundee United down in 1987 to sign for Xerez in Spain.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing but I am sure that I made a mistake. My mind in all honesty was debating… Spain or Dundee, Spain or Dundee.
In the end sunny Spain was my destination.
Despite not signing for him, I went on to have a great relationship with him when I became an agent.
I did a lot of deals with him and he was always 100% upfront and honest. To sum the man up when he gave his word he never went back on it. A gentleman and an icon who will never be forgotten. RIP Mr McLean.
