Jim McIntyre




Date of birth






Born in Scotland, McIntyre began his career in England with Bristol City in 1991, after unsuccessful trials with trials with Hearts and Dundee United.

He served a short loan spell with Exeter City before returning to Scotland to play for First Division side Airdrieonians in 1993.

Three seasons later and McIntyre was picked up by Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock, there the striker became a Scottish Cup winner, having scored the winner in the semi-final against Dundee United to take the East Ayrshire outfit to Ibrox for a showdown with Falkirk back in 1997.

A price tag of £440,000 brought the native Scot south of the border in March 2008 and he led the line in Madejski Stadium’s first match as Tommy Burns’ side, scoring in a 3-0 win over Luton Town.

He went on to make exactly 100 league appearances for Reading, the last of which came at the Millennium Stadium as Alan Pardew’s side lost out in the League One play-off final to Walsall.

Back to Scotland he went and his career continued at Dundee United and Dunfermline before moving into management at East End Park in 2007.

In September 2014, McIntyre was appointed as the manager of Scottish top flight side Ross County, aged 42.
