Legendary Aberdeen striker, the battering ram at the front of the greatest ever Dons team that won the UEFA Cup Winners Cup. McGhee was a tenacious, battling striker, a total handful for opposition defences with his physical style of play, willingness to run with the ball at his feet and ability to bring his teammates into play. He had deceptively good close control and passing ability, especially his crossing, most famously to set up John Hewitt for the winning goal against Real Madrid in that legendary night in Gothenburg. Despite his all-action style of play that mainly focused on disrupting the opposition rather than besieging the goal himself, he had a good scoring record, netting exactly 100 goals in 250 games for Aberdeen. He also famously scored against England in the last ever game at the British Home Championship, abolished after its 100th anniversary.

After having spells at Hamburg, Celtic and Newcastle, McGhee has since had a long and varied managerial career. He's won promotion with Reading, Millwall and Brighton, and took Motherwell to European football for the first time in over a decade. Unfortunately, he's also had disastrous spells at Aberdeen, Bristol Rovers and a second period at Motherwell. His dealings with the press and the fans have been as erratic as his results as a manager, his temper boiling over on several occasions, especially with Aberdeen fans. Despite this, he's still an important figure in the club's history, and no Dons fan will tell you otherwise.
