Place of birthBury
NationalityScottish
Weight89 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionGoalkeeper

They say that everything comes to those who wait, but even Andy probably couldn't believe his dream move at the end of the 2000-01 campaign. Twenty years after Tommy Docherty tried to sign him for Manchester United,a goalkeeping crisis prompted Sir Alex Ferguson to sign Andy from Motherwell in March. At 36, the former Scottish international goalkeeper was considered a stop-gap signing and he appeared just twice for United. Andy is that rarity in the modern game a double international, having played both football and cricket for Scotland.
