Contents

Playing career

Kirkwood made his name with Dundee United, where over 400 appearances saw him clinch the Scottish Premier Division title and two League Cup wins, alongside five domestic cup runners-up medals. After a short spell with Hibernian and similarly short return to United, Kirkwood moved to Dunfermline, before finishing his career with Dundee.

Management

After Ivan Golac's sacking, Kirkwood took over the Dundee United manager's job in 1995 but could not prevent the Terrors from being relegated. In the First Division, he guided United to a play-off victory and promotion, but was sacked six games into the 1996-97 season and replaced by Tommy McLean, who would lead United to 3rd place. Kirkwood had a short caretaker manager role with St Johnstone in 2001, and has held assistant manager roles with Dundee, Dunfermline and St Johnstone, plus a coaching role with Livingston.
