Happy Birthday also to Stewart McKimmie who will turn 54 today. Stewart was a great attacking full back who played for Scotland from 1989 to 1996. Stewart won 40 caps in total, all during his time with Aberdeen. His first cap came in a 2-0 defeat to England at Hampden in the Rous Cup of 1989; his last cap would come seven years on, in a 2-0 defeat to England at Wembley in the 1996 Euros Finals. In between Stewart played in two games in Italia ’90 making a subs appearance against Costa Rica and playing the full ninety against Brazil.
He would also play in all three games of the 1992 Euros in Sweden; his Scotland swansong would be the two opening games of the ’96 Euros.
However, there is one moment we all remember Stewart for and it was his stunning goal to give Scotland victory against Argentina in March, 1990.
Happy Birthday Stewart and all the best.
