Biography


Scot Symon began his professional career with Dundee after signing for the club from Dundee Violet in March of 1930. He had previously played for Errol Rovers and Preston North End juniors.

He was much sought after at junior level with Rangers, Aberdeen, Motherwell, Queens Park, Clyde, Dundee United, St Johnstone and numerous English clubs after his signature.

Boltow Wanderers offered him their highest limit to sign for them but he turned them down to sign for Dundee.

After 160 appearances for Dundee, he moved down South to Portsmouth were he spent a few season before returning to Scotland to sign for Rangers.

Symon spent 9 seasons at Ibrox and only raked up 37 first team games. This was due to the outbreak of World War 2.

He made over 250 appearances during the war years but these were all unofficial due to the leaves being suspended.

After retirement, Scot managed East Fife, Preston North End, Rangers and Partick Thistle.
