Brian was signed from Tynecastle Boys Club. He started in United youths and reserves and was a Scotland schools, Under-16 and youth international. In competition with several established first team players, he did not gain a regular starting slot until 1990-91. In season 1993-94, he was a first choice and scored crucial goals, en route to collecting a winnerís medal in the Scottish Cup final. He was a regular in the side which encountered relegation and after a tough campaign in the First Division, Brian netted what was arguably his most important goal for United, in the play-off second leg against Partick Thistle. At the beginning of the next season, he left to join Hibs for a fee of around £200,000.
