FORMER Bradford (Park Avenue) right-back Findlay McGillivray has died, aged 81.

A native of Newtongrange, near Dalkeith, he joined Third Lanark in 1959 and made over 100 appearances for the Scottish League Division One side. His consistent displays earned him a move to Glasgow Rangers in 1965, where he featured in the reserve team.

The following year he was recommended to Bradford manager Jock Buchanan who brought him to Park Avenue in May 1966. He appeared in 39 Division Four matches during 1966-7, when the club was forced to seek re-election. McGillivray moved back to Scotland and joined St Johnstone after being given a free transfer by new manager Jack Rowley. His professional career ended with Albion Rovers in 1970.
