Think Jim started with Cathkin Utd,he went to Dundee Utd from Stonehouse Violet and played with a number of senior teams. Outstanding player should be well up the list.View Archive Comments »

Jimmy Kerr was a wonderful player, Jim McLean saw him and signed him to the 10 year mad contract that only Jim McLean could tear up. Jimmy wouldn't move to within the 10 mile rim of Tannadice. His passing was immense and the reading of the game. We have 7 witnesses of a bet that no one could hit a crossbar 3 times in a row from outside the 18 yard box. Jimmy done it 9 times in a row. very modest fellow but a great lad. Richard Gough said he couldn't understand why he never went on to better things. Didn't drink or rarely...My 21st he had a 1/2 pint shandy, fitness nut, btw, that's not him in the picture.

Met Jim a while back at the end of the season and he told me he had left E.K.Thistle and was going to have a break from football glad to see that did not happen and he has joined the management team at Cambuslang Rangers wish him all the best for the coming season.

I agree. Terrific footballer. Not sure what he is doing nowadays but a class act. Did he not have the opportunity to go to Dundee United but did not get on very well with Jim McLean? A good candidate for Rutherglens Greatest team. - I think he came from the Cathkin area. One to keep an eye on as voting hots up.
