Career

McIntyre began his senior career in England, after having unsuccessful trials with Hearts and Dundee United, and serving a three-year joinery apprenticeship,[1] signing for Bristol City in 1991. While there, he had a loan spell with Exeter City in 1993. Later that year he returned to Scotland, signing for Airdrieonians. In March 1996 he joined Kilmarnock and went on to be part of the Killie side that won the Scottish Cup in 1997. McIntyre was instrumental in the club reaching the final, having scored the winning goal in the semi-final replay against Dundee United.

In March 1998, McIntyre was transferred to Reading for a fee of £440,000, and the following month appeared for Scotland in a 'B' international against Norway. However, his career at Reading failed to take off and he was released at the end of his contract in 2001. This led to another return to Scottish football, signing for Dundee United in July. Although his initial contract was for a two year period, he twice extended his stay at Tannadice.[2] However, it was announced by United manager Craig Brewster in April 2006 that McIntyre would be free to leave the club at the end of the season.[3]

In July 2006, McIntyre signed for Dunfermline after negotiating a termination of his United contract.[4] He scored a decisive penalty kick against Hibernian at Hampden Park in a Tennents Scottish Cup Semi Final replay allowing Dunfermline to progress to the Final with a 1-0 Victory.[5] After being appointed as Pars manager at the start of 2008, McIntyre didn't make an appearance for the club until November 2008 due to injury.[6]

Management

On 4 December 2007, McIntyre was appointed caretaker head-coach of Dunfermline, following the sacking of the incumbent manager of the club, Stephen Kenny. McIntyre's first match in charge was a home clash against Clyde on 8 December, when Dunfermline came from behind to claim a 1–1 draw, a result repeated the next week away at Partick Thistle, where Stephen Glass also missed a penalty.

He was appointed as Dunfermline manager on a full time basis on the 3 January 2008, signing a two-and-a-half year deal after an impressive run of four successive victories.[7] After four straight wins, McInytre was awarded the First Division Manager of the Month award for December.[8] He again won the award, this time for Dunfermline's unbeaten run in September 2008.[9]

McIntyre finally decided to hang up his boots in 2010 after an embarressing overhead kick attempt while playing Ayr United. [10]
