Iain signed on a free transfer from Rangers in the summer of 1974. He rarely missed a game over 1974-75 and joined a Scotland Under-23 squad against Romania but was an unused substitute. After suffering a serious injury, he missed most of the next season and in February 1976, he was forced to retire from the game, still aged just 23.
