The 1993–94 season was the 84th year of football played by Dundee United, and covers the period from 1 July 1993 to 30 June 1994. United finished in sixth place but the season will be remembered for the club's first Scottish Cup win, after Ivan Golac guided the club to success in his first season.


Season review

The club began the season without Duncan Ferguson, selling him to Rangers for a British transfer record of £4m. Replacing him up front was Craig Brewster, signed from Raith Rovers for a more modest £0.25m.

The club endured replays in most rounds of the Scottish Cup before beating Rangers to win the trophy at the seventh attempt.

Match results

Dundee United played a total of 58 competitive matches during the 1993–94 season. The team finished sixth in the Scottish Premier Division.

In the cup competitions, United won the Scottish Cup for the first time, beating Rangers 1-0 and qualifying for the following season's UEFA Cup Winners' Cup competition in the process. The club lost narrowly in the League Cup semi-final to Hibernian and lost on away goals to Brøndby in the UEFA Cup first round.
