Former fox Billy McKay is one doing a grand job north of the border. The
N Ireland international left Leicester in 2009, without getting his
league debut. McKay joined Northampton and did well at Sixfields,
scoring 13 goals in 74 league games.
After two seasons with Northampton it was time for a new adventure.
McKay moved to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in The Highlands of Scotland.
He had a good spell with Inverness lasting until 2015. He then moved
south again and signed for Wigan.
The move never became great and a loan return to Inverness helped McKay.
Last July he decided to make a move back to The Highlands, this time to
Inverness rival Ross County. Signed on a free, with a new two year
contract in his pocket.
Ross County play their home games at Victoria Park, a name also familier
for Leicester fans. Ross County is located in Dingwall, a place with a
population of around 5000 people. Impressive to see a small village host
McKay has so far played 15 league games and scored a single goal during
his first months with his new club.
This is not the first time that Leicester have players who also have
played for both clubs in The Highlands, former goalkeeper
Nicky Walker also appeared for Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross
County. If you like to follow up on former foxes check our
