David McNamee (born 10 October 1980 in Glasgow) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays for Championship club Plymouth Argyle.

McNamee, a versatile defender, started his career with Scottish club St Mirren, where his impressive performances alerted English Premier League club Blackburn Rovers, who signed him in 1999.

His £300,000 transfer to England, however, was unsuccessful, and in 2002, having failed to make a single first team appearance for the Ewood Park club, he returned to Scotland Livingston, on a free transfer.

He quickly established himself in the Livingston first team, and his continuous impressive and consistent performances alerted the attention of the then Scotland national team manager Berti Vogts, who rewarded him with his first cap against Estonia, in 2004. He featured again for Scotland just three days later, as a late substitute against Trinidad and Tobago.

McNamee was a member of the Livingston team which won the Scottish League Cup in 2004, against Hibernian at Hampden Park. In 2005-06, McNamee's season was blighted by injury and he only featured 15 times for Livingston, who were eventually relegated from the Scottish Premier League. The season ended on a high for McNamee, however, as he was recalled to the Scotland squad for the Kirin Cup matches against Bulgaria and Japan. McNamee featured as a substitute in both games as Scotland won the trophy after beating Bulgaria 5-1 and drawing 0-0 with hosts Japan.

With Livingston having been relegated from the SPL, and several clubs having confirmed their interest in him, it was unlikely that McNamee would remain at Livingston. On 2 June 2006, he signed for Coventry City F.C. of the English Championship, for a fee of £100,000.

On 14 July 2008, McNamee was released by Coventry. His time at the Ricoh Arena was blighted by injuries, and although given a chance to prove his worth to the team, manager Chris Coleman decided against offering a new deal.[1]

On 15 July, McNamee signed a two-year contract with Championship club Plymouth Argyle, becoming their third signing of the summer.
