Jimmy Smith

Date of birth20 January 1947
Place of birthGlasgow
NationalityScottish
PositionMidfielder

Jinky Jimmy might not have rewarded his Gallowgate audience with medals and trophies but it was of little consequence as his tricks and chips enthralled the admiring crowd. Already capped by Scotland before he left Aberdeen, a series of knee problems brought a premature end to his magical performances.
