Booth emerged through the Pittodrie ranks and was thought to have a great future in the game. Scott established himself in the Under 21 side, making a record amount of appearances, and goals. He became a regular in the Dons line up after breaking through with Eoin Jess in 1991. Scott was often let down by a catalogue of injuries, which hampered his progress. He missed out on the Dons only success during his time
at Pittodrie in 1995 when injury kept him out of the side that defeated Dundee in the League Cup Final.
He made his full Scotland debut against Germany at Ibrox in 1993, and was soon hailed as a striker of true potential by Craig Brown after
scoring a vital goal against Russia at Hampden in November 1994. Booth scored five goals for Scotland. He left Pittodrie in 1996 to join Dortmund under the Bosman ruling, and has since played for Twente and Utrecht in Holland. He returned to Pittodrie in 2003 and was the clubs top scorer with 10 goals from his 25 outings. Scott now works for Setanta Sports.
