With Aberdeen he was honoured by his country and gained 65 Scottish caps. He has an appearance record of 556 league games, a feat that will probably never be surpassed.

He will be remembered for his role as Aberdeen's captain courageous under the managership of Alex Ferguson and this Bridgeton boy will go down in history as one of the greatest players to play for Aberdeen FC.
 

Webmaister - "As I mentioned Willie was in the same class as my sister, Linda McArthur in the year below me at John Street School. During that time we had a fantastic football team with Willie playing centre forward terrorising the opposition. I think the Dalmarnock School team was run by teacher Dan Wright at that time and our school was blessed with some wonderful players. The teacher at John St school was MrMcLachlan ( the boone)"
