Club career

Advertisements

Dundee United

Dailly was born in Dundee, Tayside and first signed professional terms with Dundee United on 2 August 1990, aged sixteen years old. He became the youngest-ever player to appear for Dundee United when he made his first-team debut on 21 August 1990. Playing as a striker and scoring in each of his first three games, Dailly quickly shot to prominence, making his Scotland Under 21 side debut just a month later. In his debut season, Dailly managed five goals in eighteen appearances. His debut season would become his most prolific, and the 1991–92 season brought just eight games with no goals. In the 1992–93 season, Dailly scored four from fourteen appearances and firmly established himself as a regular in the 1993–94 season with 38 league appearances, and not only another four goals, but also the Scottish Cup, when his shot rebounded off the post for Craig Brewster to score the only goal against Rangers.

The 1994–95 season ended in disappointment with relegation, with yet another four goals from 33 games. In 1995–96, Dailly was firmly established as a central defender and started the season as United's club captain, although he was subsequently replaced by Dave Bowman. He scored just once in 30 appearances. It was an important goal though, as it ensured United drew the away leg of the short-lived league-playoff against Partick Thistle, and subsequently won the home leg to gain promotion at the first opportunity. This proved to be Dailly's final moment, as he joined Derby County in August 1996 for £500,000, with a further £500,000 payable dependent on his international career, which was later paid.

Derby County

Dailly joined Derby County at the start of the 1996–97 season, following Derby's promotion to the FA Premier League. In his debut English season, Dailly missed just two games, with his three goals helping Derby to 12th place and six points clear of relegation. In the 1997–98 season, Dailly made 30 appearances and scored once; Derby fared even better, with the club finishing 9th and just two points from European football. In 1998–99, Dailly played just once, ironically against Blackburn Rovers, the club he was then transferred to.

Blackburn Rovers

Dailly joined Rovers in August 1998 for £5.35m but a tumultuous season followed with Dailly not finding a settled position and an injury meaning he played just seventeen times. To make matters worse, Rovers were relegated from the FA Premier League as Dailly suffered relegation for the second time in his career. In the First Division, Dailly appeared 43 times in a hectic 1999–00 season, which saw him score four goals. However, he fell out of favour with new boss Graeme Souness and in January 2001, after making just nine appearances that season, Dailly left for West Ham United in a £1.75m deal and returned to the Premier League. During his spell in Lancashire he played in a testimonial match for Celtic- scoring a late consolation goal against Liverpool in the Ronnie Moran testimonial match on 13 May 2000. [2]

West Ham United

He made twelve appearances in 2000–01, helping the Hammers to 15th place. He also played in their 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup.[3] The following season, Dailly played every minute of every game as West Ham finished in seventh place. 2002–03 proved to be a low point, as Daily suffered relegation for a third time. Playing 26 times, West Ham were relegated with the highest number of points since the 1995–96 change to 20 teams, a total of 42.

In 2003–04, Dailly scored 3 times from 43 games as West Ham failed to win promotion. Injury prevented Dailly from the majority of West Ham's promotion-winning 2004–05 season, although he returned to make brief appearances in both play-off semi-final legs and the final. He signed a new deal with West Ham in June 2005.[4 ] Dailly appeared as a substitute for West Ham in their 2006 FA Cup Final defeat to Liverpool, coming on in the 77th minute. Despite being 2–0 ahead after 28 minutes, West Ham eventually lost on penalties. He was the longest serving West Ham player at the time of his departure and something of a cult hero to the fans.

Southampton

On 20 September 2007, he joined Southampton on loan, initially for a month. The loan was extended for a further month as Saints continued to suffer with injuries to several defensive players.[5] He made his debut against Barnsley in a 3–2 home league defeat on 22 September 2007. After eleven appearances for Saints he returned to West Ham.

Rangers

On 30 January 2008, Dailly signed for Rangers on a short term contract until the end of the season. The club took over what remained of his contract from West Ham United.[6] He made his Rangers debut three weeks later in a UEFA Cup match against Panathinaikos; the game ended in a 1-1 and saw the club progress to the fourth round.[7] He scored his first goal 9 days later, netting the equaliser in a 3-1 triumph over Aberdeen.[8] On 4 July 2008 he and David Weir signed new one-year contract extensions with the club.[9]

Dailly played in both legs of Rangers' UEFA Champions League qualifier defeat to FBK Kaunas. After that and a couple of league games he was frozen out of first team action until an injury to Madjid Bougherra saw him included in Rangers' 2009 Scottish League Cup Final squad. Dailly played in the 2-0 defeat to Celtic and became a regular in the team towards the end of that season. He played his final game for the club in the 2009 Scottish Cup Final as a 87th minute substitute. He was released two days later on 1 June 2009. Dailly made 36 appearances in total and scored twice for Rangers.[10]

Charlton Athletic

On 31 July 2009 Dailly signed for Charlton Athletic on a Bosman free transfer and took squad number 35, his current age.[11] His debut for Charlton came on 8 August 2009 in a 3-2 home win against Wycombe Wanderers; Dailly scoring the first Charlton goal.[12]

International career

On 11 September 1990 Dailly became the youngest player to appear for his country at under-21 level when he featured at the age of 16 against Romania at Easter Road. By the time Dailly was too old to continue playing at this level, he had received 34 caps, a world record for appearances at under-21 level.[13]

Dailly made his full international debut in May 1997, aged 23, in a 1–0 defeat against Wales. His first goal came in just his second match, and just four days after his international debut, when his early goal helped Scotland to a 3–2 away victory over Malta in a friendly match.

Dailly was famously caught unawares after Germany's 2–1 defeat of Scotland on 10 September 2003. He returned to the dressing room after the match shouting, "Cheats! Fucking cheats! Fucking diving cheats!" Unfortunately, the outburst was being broadcast live on BBC Scotland as then Scotland manager Berti Vogts was being interviewed by Chick Young. The player would have remained anonymous had it not been for Vogts shouting "Christian!" mid-interview to stop the tirade.[14][15]

Dailly has captained Scotland a total of 12 times.[13]
