Ah ok. They must of at some point with him making McKimmie his captain etc. Maybe thats what it's down to.

 

Why don't they get along?

 

Don't know, McKimmie was the obvious candidate for it after McLeish and Bett left. Who else could it have gone to? Grant? Probably too quiet. They were the longest serving players. Had to be McKimmie.

 

Just a clash of personalities I'm led to believe.

I guess your right, possibly Irvine but McKimmie was definitely the one who got everyone going.

 

It's well known he's a cock anyway.

I had a chat with McKimmie a few years back and we got onto the subject of Willie Miller's after dinner speaking, which I enjoyed at one of the many gothenburg nights.  He said he was surprised that Willie actually did that sort of thing 'cos when they were team mates he always found Miller a bit dour and he didn't really speak to the rest of the players too much only the older ones that he'd known for years.  Certainly wasn't life and soul of the dressing room and not what you'd call a funny guy.

 

So no, they weren't big pals.

Going by his book it's probably true.

Just been shown by a colleague today's Sun which has Willie Miller picking his greatest Dons side.  No real surprises, he went for:

 

Leighton

 

Kennedy

Miller

McLeish

McMaster

 

Strachan

Bett

Simpson

Weir

 

McGhee

Harper

 

I'm sure in his video, he had McKimmie at left back, not McMaster.

 

Cracking midfield!

I would have Black in ahead of Harper, just because Harper is a cretin!
