Gordan McQueen Bibliography;
Gordon McQueen was born 26 June 1952 and is a Scottish former professional footballer who played as a centre-back for St Mirren, Leeds United and Manchester United. He also represented Scotland.
Whilst a schoolboy he was a goalkeeper, but later switched to centre-back. He was signed at the age of 18 by St Mirren.He soon had scouts from other clubs monitoring his progress and it was Leeds United who finally offered £30,000 in the 1972 close season, seeing him as a long-term replacement for the ageing Jack Charlton.He played on six occasions in his first season at Leeds but missed out on the 1973 FA Cup Final, with manager Don Revie instead opting for the experience of utility player Paul Madeley. When Jack Charlton retired and Madeley playing in many positions, he was in the team for most of the 1973–74 season. Leeds won the League Championship, with a run of 29 matches without a defeat from the start of the season with McQueen playing a key part alongside Norman Hunter as Leeds' first-choice centre back pairing. At the end of that season he was called up to the Scotland squad and made his international debut versus Belgium.He and Hunter excelled at the back the following season, notably in Leeds' campaign in the European Cup, during which McQueen scored three goals. Unfortunately he was suspended for the 1975 European Cup Final, after being sent off in the semi-final versus Barcelona, although Leeds went on to lose 2–0 in the final versus Bayern Munich.
He was now a regular for the Scotland national football team, as he was selected for the 1978 FIFA World Cup squad for Argentina, although he could not play due to injury. He played his last match for Scotland in 1981, gaining 30 caps and scoring five goals. In February 1978, McQueen moved from Leeds to their arch-rivals Manchester United for £495,000. On signing, he said that "99% of players want to play for Manchester United and the rest are liars." He had declared earlier in Shoot magazine that he wanted to stay at Elland Road for his entire career.
He helped Manchester United reach the 1979 FA Cup Final, scoring a goal in the 86th minute.He finally gained an FA Cup winner's medal in the 1983 FA Cup Final after a replay versus Brighton & Hove Albion. He was also in the team that was defeated in the 1983 Football League Cup Final versus Liverpool that same season. He finally left Old Trafford in the 1985 close season, after losing his first-team place to Paul McGrath and not being included in the 1985 FA Cup Final team that defeated Everton 1–0.
