Remembered for one of the all-time great World Cup goals – conjured for Scotland against Holland in the 1978 finals – Archie had a glittering career that took in passing duty for St Mirren, Preston, Derby County, Nottingham Forest, Birmingham City, Wigan and, across the Pond, with the Jacksonville Teamen.
He had a well-publicised love-hate relationship with the overpowering Brian Clough at both Derby and Forest, and has many startling stories to share about the martinet manager.
Archie tried his hand at management with Rotherham after a spell as player-coach under Peter Taylor at Derby, and then with his old boss Cloughie at Forest. A proud Scot who won 32 international caps, he has in recent years managed Scotland’s Under-19 team.
He knows the game inside out, and has many fascinating tales to tell about his football travels.
