Gus was born in Paisley, Scotland, but grew up in Port Glasgow.

Signed for Partick Thistle in November 1968 from Port Glasgow at the age of 16. In April 1970 it was announced that Gus had been given a free transfer.

Then joined Greenock Morton where he was said to have spent three seasons.

In the summer of 1973 he went on a vacation to Canada. Gus picked up on the story in an interview with Jim Nelson of the Windsor Star newspaper on May 17, 1977: “I had visited Sarnia where I had an aunt living. After returning home, I picked up a Glasgow paper one day and saw an ad for electrical designers in Sarnia, where I had just been. I applied for the job and got it.”

“I played part of that season with Sarnia Dante, but it was not the class of the National League and when the Stars were formed, I was here (Windsor) as soon as I heard of them.”

Gus joined Windsor Stars in April 1975 for their first season in the National Soccer League. The Stars won the NSL Second Division championship in the 1975 season and earned promotion to the First Division. The player-coach of the team was former Manchester City legend Roy Cheetham and playing at outside right was former Brazilian star Jair DaCosta.

Windsor Stars finished in fifth place in the final standings in the First Division in the 1976 NSL season.

In the May 17, 1977 interview Gus stated that the National Soccer League was not in the class of the Scottish Premier Division, but was comparable to the First Division in Scotland. And that that would translate into Second or Third Division strength in the English League.

Speaking about his lifestyle he said “I’ve got a 16-foot boat and I do some water-skiing”. He continued “Now, I think I’d like to give kite-flying (behind a boat) a try.”

In the 1977 National Soccer League season Gus helped Windsor Stars to a fourth place finish in the final standings in the NSL First Division.

Gus later became a referee. He was a referee in the National Soccer League in the 1990 season.
