Fondly known as "Cup-tie" McKay after his remarkable rise to fame in the Dons memorable Scottish Cup win in 1970. McKay was signed on a free transfer from Dundee in 1969, and it was not until a flu virus decimated the Dons team before a quarter final tie at Falkirk that McKay was given his opportunity. McKay scored the only goals in both the Falkirk game and the semi final against Kilmarnock. Two goals in the Final against Celtic helped the Dons to an unlikely 3-1 win, so giving McKay notoriety in Pittodrie folklore. Released on a free in 1971.

Died: Pattaya, Thailand, 20th April 2008
