Gary was with Celtic youths until he was released in August 1981 when he joined United. Already a schools international, he became part of the Scotland Under-18 squad and helped the national side win an Under-18 European Championship. He was later capped at Under-21 level also. Gary was a squad player during his nine years at Tannadice, playing much more often in the reserves than he did at first team level. In February 1990, he left to join St Johnstone for a fee of 100,000, then a record for the Perth club.
