Club career


Early career

McAllister began his career at Bellshill B.C.[1]

Queen of the South

McAllister began his senior career by signing for Dumfries club Queen of the South with new chairman Norman Blount getting the wheels moving on the club's revival.[2]

In 1997 the club reached the Scottish Challenge Cup final for the first time. Second Division Queens lost 1-0 to 1st Division Falkirk despite a rousing Queens display at Motherwell's Fir Park; a performance that included the man of the match award going to Queens veteran central midfield playmaker Tommy Bryce and an early career appearance for Jamie McAllister as substitute.[1] A late chance for a Derek Townsley equaliser went agonisingly over for Queens.[3] [4]

McAllister became one of the most sought after players in the lower leagues and was courted by several Scottish Premier League clubs.


Ebbe Skovdahl signed him for Aberdeen for a fee of £85,000 with further add ons as he made more appearances, resulting in a final fee of over £100,000.


In June 2003 Livingston signed McAllister on a free transfer after competition from English clubs.[5] It was in this spell at the West Lothian club that he regained his form and won a deserved call up from Berti Vogts for the International friendly match against Trinidad & Tobago. It was also during his spell at Livingston that he won the Scottish League Cup after a 2-0 victory over Hibernian in which he scored the second goal.[1]


At the end of the 2003/2004 season McAllister's contract expired and he agreed a two year deal to sign for Hearts [2]. During his spell at Tynecastle he was mainly used as a squad player, due to the outstanding form of Takis Fyssas and the signing of Jose Goncalves.

In January 2006, McAllister agreed a two year contract extension; however he was soon dissatisfied with his peripheral status at the club, particularly after the appointment of Valdas Ivanauskas as Hearts manager in April.

Bristol City

On August 2, 2006, McAllister signed for Bristol City on a 2 year deal. In his first season at Ashton Gate he helped City gain Promotion to the Football League Championship. In his second season McAllister was a main stay of the side that made it to the final of the play offs for a place in the English top division. On March 10 2009 he scored his first goal in over a year with a curling effort from the edge of the box against Coventry City

On 2 October 2008, McAllister was recalled to the Scotland squad by Manager George Burley for the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Norway.[6]
