Michael had been with Coleraine and Newcastle United before he signed up at Tannadice for a then record fee. He was a regular in the side until he lost his place during the second half of 1989-90 and played more often in the reserves for the next two years, partly due to illness. Michael was restored to the side by October 1992, playing regularly until the season ended and left to join Hibs for 245,000 in August 1993.
