Playing career

During his career he played for East Fife, Hibernian, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Rangers and Hearts. He was also capped 43 times by Scotland, scoring 7 goals. Durie scored the second goal in a 2–0 win against Latvia that clinched qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup.[1]

His spell with Chelsea from 1986 to 1991 yielded 51 league goals and a Second Division title medal, and in his subsequent two-year spell at Tottenham Hotspur he was scorer of the North London club's first FA Premier League goal in a 2–2 home draw with Crystal Palace on 22 August 1992.[2]

The most successful period of his career came while playing for Rangers, where he was part of the side that won nine Scottish league championships in a row, joining after their fifth successive triumph in 1993. He also added further titles in 1999 and 2000 after Celtic had disrupted their winning run.

Earlier in his career, he was part of the Chelsea side that won the Football League Second Division title in 1989.

Durie scored a hat-trick in the 1996 Scottish Cup Final to help Rangers beat Hearts 5–1.
