Scottish Football: Gillhaus finally moves on
Saturday 06 March 1993
Gillhaus had been in dispute with Aberdeen since last summer, refusing to re-sign and insisting that he did not want to move to another British club. Recently he had been at home in the Netherlands trying to fix himself up with a new club while Aberdeen held on to his registration.
Another Dutchman, Theo Ten Caat, is poised to return today for his first match since October in today's Tennents Scottish Cup quarter-final against Clydebank at Pittodrie. The midfielder started just two games before being injured four months ago, but Paul Mason is doubtful because he has five stitches in an ankle wound and his absence would give Ten Caat his chance.
Clydebank's slim hopes have been reduced by the absence of defender Doug Barron, who is in the United States on business. In addition, both Sean Sweeney and John Henry face fitness tests on injuries.
Danny McGrain, who has become something of a cult figure in his four months as manager of Second Division Arbroath, can raise his unmistakeable profile even higher. The former Celtic and Scotland defender pits his wits against Scottish Cup holders Rangers, when they visit Gayfield.
Hearts meet Falkirk in a Tynecastle re-run of last year's quarter-final, which the Edinburgh side won 3-1. The Hearts striker Ian Baird, who hurt his hamstring in the warm-up and missed that tie, could return after a month's absence with a similar problem.
John Burridge, Hibernian's 41- year-old goalkeeper, continues in place of the injured Chris Reid against St Johnstone in the quarter-final at Easter Road.
