Who was Hugh Robertson?
Hugh Robertson was a Scottish association football player and manager. He played as a winger for the Dundee team that won the Scottish league championship in 1962, and the Dunfermline side that won the 1968 Scottish Cup. He played 40 games for Arbroath, including their promotion from Division 2 in 1971-2. He later managed Danish club Herfølge.
Robertson represented the Scotland national football team once, in a vital 1962 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Czechoslovakia. Injuries to Davie Wilson and Alex Scott meant that Robertson and Ralph Brand were brought in for the match, which Scotland had to win to qualify. Despite two goals by Ian St. John, Scotland lost 4–2 after extra time.
Robertson died at his home on 12 March 2010.
