From Caley Nostalgia Page:

"It's white, it's blue, it hasn't got a clue" was the verdict of the Caley fanzine after a brief honeymoon period. Smart was signed by Baltacha (from Brechin's reserve side) but soon became embroiled in the merger controversy. As an outsider who travelled up the A9 in Sergei's car, his views were not appreciated, and when he scored the only goal in the North Cup Final, many actually booed him. His season with Caley was unspectacular, though soon after the merged club joined the Scottish League, he was off to Preston, Carlisle then Watford, scoring the goal which beat Chelsea in the Premiership. All of which goes to show that people like me know sod-all about football.
