Career

Early career

Dargo began his career with Kirkcaldy side Raith Rovers. He scored 29 goals in 82 league games before moving to Kilmarnock on a free transfer in June 2000.[1] He remained at Rugby Park for the next five years. During this time he made his first appearance in European competition, scoring as Kilmarnock were eliminated by Norwegian side Viking in the UEFA Cup.[2] His time at Kilmarnock was dogged by injuries, and he was released in May 2005[3] after over 100 games for Killie.

Inverness

In June 2005, Dargo joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a two-year deal,[4] scoring his first goal during a draw against Rangers at Ibrox Stadium. In February 2006, Dargo began negotiations on a new contract,[5] with former Inverness manager Craig Brewster, now managing Ross County, subsequently linked with signing the player.[6] The speculation passed and Dargo made an appearance for the Scotland Future side in March 2006, going on to score 19 goals in 38 league games that season.

In April 2007, weeks before the end of his contract, Inverness confirmed "a few English clubs" had expressed interest in signing Dargo.[7] A "last go" in mid May[8] – a record deal for the club[9] – failed to keep him at the club, with Dargo announcing in June that he would leave Inverness.[10]

St. Mirren

On 28 June 2007, he signed for St. Mirren.[11] Dargo aggravated his recurring knee injury which kept him out for several weeks, finally making debut against former club Kilmarnock on 22 December 2007. Dargo scored his first goal for the club against Gretna to officially relegate them on 29 March 2008.
