Club career[edit]

Heart of Midlothian[edit]

McGhee signed for Heart of Midlothian (Hearts) in 2007, having previously played for Claremont.[5] In July 2012, he signed a three-year professional contract, tying him to the club until 2015.[5] A member of the club's Under-20 squad[6] McGhee made his first team debut[7] aged 16,[8] on 4 May 2013, coming on as an 86th minute substitute at Tynecastle in a Scottish Premier League match against St. Mirren, replacing Mehdi Taouil in a 3–0 win.[9] The following season on 24 August 2013, in only his second substitute appearance,[10] he scored his first professional goal,[11] an 88th-minute winner in a 2-1 win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.[12] The following week he made his first start against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, in a 2–0 defeat.[13]

International career[edit]

McGhee earned caps at U15, U16 and U18 level before earning a call up to the Scotland U21 squad aged just 17 after some impressive performances for Hearts.

After establishing himself as a regular at centre back alongside Stuart Findlay, he captained the Scotland U21 side for the first time in a friendly against Switzerland on 18 November 2014 which ended in a 1-1 draw.[14]
