Club career

Early career

He began his professional career in 1988 at Greenock Morton, where he played in 221 league games in seven seasons before moving to Rangers. He spent almost five years at Ibrox, amassing 53 appearances for the club. During his time in Glasgow, McInnes had a loan spell at English club Stockport County, where he made 13 league appearances. He was also briefly at French side Toulouse.

West Bromwich Albion

McInnes joined West Bromwich Albion in the summer of 2000, but a cruciate ligament injury ended his season in October. He returned the following season to captain Albion to a place in the Premier League. He also won Albion's Goal of the Season award at the end of the promotion campaign, for his 25-yard strike against Sheffield United in the Battle of Bramall Lane.[1] McInnes played in the majority of Albion's Premier League games during 2002-03 but was unable to prevent them from being relegated. In all he made 100 appearances and scored six times for the West Midlands side.

Return to Scotland

McInnes joined Dundee United on 11 July 2003, and was immediately installed as team captain by manager Ian McCall. In his first full season at Tannadice, McInnes missed only three league and one cup game. He helped the club to a fifth-place finish in the Scottish Premier League and scored twice — his first coming in the Scottish Cup against Dunfermline and his second in a league match against Hearts. After an unsteady start to the 2004-05 season, McInnes began to take control again in the centre of midfield. He then picked up an injury with a third of the season remaining but managed to return to the first team for the Scottish Cup final at the end of the season.

In April 2006, United manager Craig Brewster announced that McInnes was free to leave the club at the end of the season, despite having a year of his contract left to run.[2]

Millwall

On 24 June 2006, it was announced that McInnes had finally come to an agreement to be released from his contract and he subsequently joined Millwall. The then-Lions boss Nigel Spackman gave McInnes the captain's armband with the comment: "Every Millwall player on that pitch should be a Derek McInnes."[3]

St Johnstone

McInnes left Millwall on a free transfer during the January 2007 transfer window, returning to Scotland to sign for St. Johnstone late on New Year's Day.[4] He made his debut for the Perth club on 6 January, against Ayr United in the Scottish Cup at McDiarmid Park.

International career

International recognition came late to McInnes as he made his Scotland debut on 21 August 2002, coming on for the last ten minutes against Denmark in a friendly. Three months later, against Portugal, he was sub again, coming on midway through the first half.

Managerial career

McInnes was appointed manager of St. Johnstone on 27 November 2007, after the previous management team of Owen Coyle and Sandy Stewart had departed for Burnley.[5] On 2 May 2009, McInnes secured promotion to the Scottish Premier League for St. Johnstone, ending their seven year spell in the First Division.[6]

During the 2009/10 close season, McInnes was linked with the managerial positions at West Bromwich Albion and Watford.[7] He remained at St. Johnstone, however, and in October 2009 he signed a new contract with the Perth club.[7]
