Description

Inside forward Johnny McKenzie started his football career with junior club Maryhill before joining Scottish League Third Lanark. From there he joined Heart of Midlothian in 1934, making his Jambos’ debut that August in a friendly against Rapid Wien of Austria, and scoring 17 goals in 37 League and Cup appearances for them over  his single season at Tynecastle.

He moved to Aberdeen in the summer of 1935, he was apparently “so successful with Hearts that it was quite a surprise when he was placed on the open-to-transfer list.” Described as “a strong forcing player and a deadly marksman… he is the possessor of a deceiving body swerve which he uses to great effect”. He remained with Aberdeen until the outbreak of The Second World War in 1939, scoring 21 goals in 119 appearances over 4 seasons at Pittodrie.
