Andrew McNeil

Football player from Scotland

Andrew "Andy" McNeil (born 19 January 1987 in Edinburgh, Scotland) is a Scottish professional association football goalkeeper who currently plays for Livingston. McNeil was previously with Hibernian, for whom he played in the 2007 Scottish League Cup Final win. He has also represented Scotland at three youth international levels. A former student at Leith Academy, McNeil drew early inspiration, and an inclination towards goalkeeping, from watching Jim Leighton play for his local side, Hibs. He opted to start his career in England, however, joining Southampton in August 2003 through their academy system, earning a professional contract in 2004. He was a member of Southampton's youth team that reached the 2005 FA Youth Cup Final, losing on aggregate to Ipswich Town. McNeil negotiated an early release from his contract when new Saints manager George Burley signed a rival young goalkeeper, Bartosz Białkowski, in January 2006. Despite occasionally appearing on the substitute's bench, he did not make a competitive appearance during his time with Southampton. Two days after his departure from the St Mary's Stadium, McNeil returned to Edinburgh to sign for Hibernian. McNeil made his debut  ( Wikipedia article )
