Tommy signed from Clydebank. His career at United never really took off and he was constantly battling for a first team place against established players. Even when he did get into the side he could not find his scoring touch. In the 1985 Scottish Cup final, Tommy was an unused substitute. In November 1986 he left to join neighbours Dundee for 75,000.
