Profile

The left sided defender arrived at Glebe Park in September 2020 having left Celtic that summer.

Born and bred in Lennoxtown, McKay grew up just down the road from Celtic's world-famous training facility and progressed through the academy at the Glasgow side right through from Under-8 level.

The 19 year-old spent time on loan at Lowland League outfit BSC Glasgow last season and was on target against Lochee United during BSC's impressive Scottish Cup run, where they finally succumbed to Hibernian in the fifth round.

McKay has already featured for City in the two pre-season matches against Cove Rangers and Arbroath. He is re-united with another former Celtic youth player in Scott Cusick, a recent loan signing from Dunfermline Athletic.

Manager Mark Wilson said, "Dave is another up and coming talent that we're hugely excited to work with. He's been with Celtic for a number of years now and played for their reserve side. He is someone we've been in touch with since January - we didn't quite get it over the line then but we're delighted to bring him in now.

"He had interest from the likes of Queens Park who will be heavily tipped to win our league, as well as Peterhead. However, Dave has decided to come to us on the promise of getting games and excelling himself to the next level.

"He has a fantastic attitude and a good pedigree behind him having worked with some excellent coaches throughout the years. He fills a position which has been a problem for us for a couple of years now."
