Scottish soccer fullback who played for Darvel (1891–1893) and Rangers (1893–1904). Smith was also capped at international level, making 12 appearances for Scotland, two as captain. He also represented the Scottish League XI nine times.
Smith was part of Rangers' first ever Scottish Cup win in 1894, playing in all six games, including the 3–1 final win over Celtic. He formed an effective partnership in the defence alongside Jock Drummond for over a decade, and made over 300 competitive appearances.
At 6 AM on 6 January 1905 in Kilmarnock, aged 31, Smith died from enteric fever, an illness which also caused his wife's simultaneous death. His son Jimmy was also a soccer player, a winger, also for Rangers but primarily for Aberdeen in the 1920s.
