David Narey, MBE (born 12 June 1956) is a former Scottish internationalfootballer, who spent 21 years with Dundee United, coinciding with United's most successful era, under the management of Jim McLean. Many considered Narey to be the most naturally talented member of the side during these years. Although best remembered as a central defender, he was equally comfortable in a midfield position. Narey is probably best remembered for opening the scoring for Scotland against Brazil in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.
Upon leaving United, Narey joined Raith Rovers, who were playing in the Scottish Football League First Division. He was part of the Raith team that won promotion to the Premier Division as First Division champions. He also played in the Raith team that defeated Celtic in the 1994 Scottish League Cup Final, winning the Man-of-the-Match award for his performance in the game.
Narey made his international debut for Scotland against Sweden in April 1977, becoming the first Dundee United player to represent Scotland at full international level. He played in both the 1982 and 1986 FIFA World Cups an scored his only international goal during the 1982 tournament, a long range shot against Brazil. Television pundit Jimmy Hill upset Scottish fans by describing the goal as a "toe poke". Narey made the last of his 35 appearances for Scotland in 1989.
