Biography: Bobby started his professional career, where he won the Scottish Cup in 1921. Rangers was his next stop before a £2,750 transfer took him to Newcastle United in 1926. There, he made an immediate impact, scoring a hat-trick on his debut and going on to help his new team to win the League Championship in his first season. A potential career in management was curtailed by the outbreak of World War 2, only a few weeks after he had taken over at Dundee United. The Glaswegian died in his home town in May 1977 at the age of 76.
