Now McKay has signed for Queen of the South as he earns a move to the next division up. Manager Allan Johnston said of the former Leeds United player “Paul was one of Airdrie’s top players last season as they pushed for a place in the Championship so we are delighted to have him on board.

“Although predominantly a centre back he can also play in midfield which gives us other options. At 24 he is a good age and I’m looking forward to working with him”.
