Ian had been Dundee and Rangers before he signed for United. He had also won Scotland youth and Under-21 caps. Although he never won silverware with United he won medals in the Scottish Cup and League Cup (twice) when playing for Rangers against United.

With United he picked up runners-up medals in the Scottish Cup and UEFA Cup. During his three years at Tannadice he was a regular in the line up and an influential player, particularly on the European stage. He left in November 1988 to join Ipswich Town for around 200,000.
