Playing career

He began his career at Celtic, but failed to break into the first team. He was released and signed for Carlisle United and was almost ever present in their one season in the old First Division. He signed for Tottenham Hotspur in 1976 before injury as a result of a tackle by Jimmy Case lost him his place. He went on to play for the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the NASL for four seasons (1979-1982) alongside Rodney Marsh and Manny Andruszewski.

Coaching and management career

His coaching career has often been intertwined with his longtime friend Glenn Hoddle, starting when Gorman became Hoddle's assistant at Swindon Town. When Hoddle left for Chelsea, Gorman became full-time manager at Swindon. His spell as manager was unsuccessful, with Gorman receiving some unkind nicknames (such as "John Gormless") from fans and the side finishing bottom of the Premiership in 1993-94. Gorman was sacked halfway through the 1994-95 season, with Swindon on the verge of a second successive relegation (which his successor, Steve McMahon was unable to prevent).

Despite being Scottish, he later rejoined Hoddle as his assistant when Hoddle became England manager. After Hoddle's dismissal Gorman became assistant manager at Reading. Since then, he has also worked with Hoddle at Southampton and Tottenham. After leaving Tottenham in 2003 he was briefly caretaker manager at Wycombe but was passed over in favour of Tony Adams. He took over as caretaker manager at Gillingham after Andy Hessenthaler stepped down and despite a successful spell, declined the full-time job. Instead, after Adams' resignation in late 2004 Gorman returned to Wycombe as manager.
