The Hungarian international was a surprise signing by Jim Bonthrone in 1972, after joining the Dons from Hertha Berlin in a £40,000 deal. Varga was a gifted player, blessed with a technical ability never before seen at Pittodrie, and in his brief stay at the club he thrilled the Dons support, with some fabulous moments. Often the target of the more physical players, Varga was often said to be ahead of his time, and those fortunate enough to see him at Pittodrie would not disagree. However, in his second season at Aberdeen he reported himself as being "injured" and unavailable to play. It was speculated that he was engineering a move back to the continent. Moved to Ajax in 1973 to replace the legendary Johan Cruyff.

Died: Budapest, 9th April 2010
