Steven had been with Rangers and Coventry City before he came to Tannadice for a United record fee. He was an influential player, with an important part in regaining top flight status in 1995-96. In 1997 he collected a runners-up medal in the League Cup final. Rarely out of the side during his three years at United, he left under freedom of contract at the end of 1997-98 and soon after he signed for Hearts.
