His friends say he was some player. Played in the great Avoca team who went unbeated at the Overtoun Park for years, and also played for Johnstone Burgh.

In 1966 Danny went to Cambuslang Rangers from Avoca. He had played just 4 games at Junior level when Celtic wanted to sign him on a provisional form. He was an outstanding player. Not sure why he never signed for Celtic – does anyone know ?

Danny was a great player. He played for Avoca ( he played like the great Charlie Cooke of Chelsea). What a player. Probably the second best player to come from Rutherglen after Bobby Murdoch.

Danny won the Junior Cup playing for the 'Burgh and went on to play senior - East Fife I think.
