Gordon McQueen

Date of birth26 June 1952
Place of birthKilbirnie
NationalityScottish
PositionDefender/Centre back

Scotland International

A top class centre-half, tall, quick, good in the air, powerful, good in the tackle, Gordon was one of United's greatest defenders (1977-85). Manager Dave Sexton had twice raided Elland Road in 1977-78, first to land Joe Jordan then McQueen, both commanding good fees. United certainly felt the benefit of the two experienced Scots. Won FA Cup medal in 1983.
