The Blue Toon were Hagen’s last senior club before a stint with junior side Bo’ness United and handed over a framed shirt to Davie’s sister Kristin.

Kristin told Peterhead’s website the family were putting together the framed shirts as a surprise on Christmas Day for the 46-year-old – and is looking for Scotland under-21s shirt from his seven appearances for in Dark Blue.

“We are putting together all the jerseys from David’s former clubs in his room to give him a surprise on Christmas Day,” she said.

Our thanks go to Peterhead and the other clubs that have helped out.”

“David also played seven times for Scotland’s under-21 side and I am trying to track down a top from them to complete the surprise.”

Hagen spent five years at Ibrox, coming through the youth system at Ibrox before leaving to sign for Hearts in 1994.

The midfielder spent a year at Tynecastle before signing for local club Falkirk, where he was a key member of the side for five years.

Spells with Livingston, Clyde and Peterhead followed before his brief sojourn into the junior game with Bo’ness brought the curtain down on his playing career.
