His roster of clubs took in Arsenal in 1943-44, where he scored four times in 11 games and he moved to Tottenham in September 1944, when he played 15 games and scored once.  Bobby was a speedy striker and a good finisher, so when he returned to Scotland with Airdrieonians, he netted 50 times in the 1946-47 season.    His goal-scoring impressed the Scottish selectors and he was awarded two Scottish caps and also represented the Scottish League twice.
