On the BBC Sport Scottish Football site there is a great picture of Sturrock in full flow playing for Dundee United at Ibrox. It’s in the tribute piece to Tom Forsyth, ex-Rangers and Scotland, who has sadly passed away
Since the advent of TV money the gap between top flight Scottish and English club football has become massive but back in the mid-eighties, there wasn’t too much difference between the top clubs in each League. Under Jim McLean, Dundee United were a top side and Sturrock was a prominent member of that team; he was a very good player.
During this time, as well as having success at home, Dundee United also did very well in Europe, beating the likes of Barcelona and other famous clubs.
