Pat Liney Net Worth At Death

Patrick Liney, a Scottish professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper has died aged 86. He played for clubs in both Scotland and England for Dalry Thistle, Dundee, St Mirren, Bradford Park Avenue and Bradford City.

At the time of death, Liney had an estimated net worth of $2 million.

Liney, who also had a spell at St Mirren, was part of the Dundee side that became league champions in 1962, and was also the club’s honorary president.

He made over 100 appearances for the Dens Park side between 1957 and 1963 and it was his crucial penalty save against St Mirren in the penultimate game of the 1962 season that was pivotal in securing the league title.

A statement from his former club Dundee read;

Liney will most likely be remembered by Dundee’s supporters for a crucial penalty save in the penultimate game of the season at home to St Mirren.

Going into the match Dundee were still a point behind leaders Rangers but by half time Dundee were one up thanks to an Alan Cousin strike and Rangers were losing 1-0 at Pittodrie.

With 12 minutes left however, disaster struck when the referee awarded St. Mirren a penalty after an alleged handball from Gordon Smith and it looked like Dundee’s chances of winning the League Flag were about to vanish into thin air.

However, earlier, in the season, Dundee been knocked out the Scottish Cup by eventual runners-up St Mirren and in the build up to the game Pat’s father, himself a Buddies supporter, gave him some advice that would prove crucial a few months later.

Liney saved the penalty which lead to Dundee clinching the league title.
