Malky McDonald (26 October 1913 – 1999) was a Scottish football player and manager.[1][2]

McDonald played for Celtic during the 1930s. He represented the Scottish League once, in 1941[3] and played three times for Scotland in wartime internationals.[4] He signed for Kilmarnock during the Second World War, initially on loan.[1] He moved to English football for a few years, playing for Brentford, but returned to Kilmarnock as manager.[1] He managed the club in two spells, either side of the tenure of Willie Waddell.[2] In his second spell, he guided Kilmarnock to the semi-final of the 1966–67 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, where they lost to Leeds United.[2][5] McDonald was caretaker manager of the Scotland national football team for two games in 1966.

Less than 24 hours earlier, Kilmarnock FC exited the semi-finals of the Uefa Cup (known then as the Fair Cities Cup), when Leeds United defeated them 4-2 at Rugby Park, with both sides having played out a goalless encounter in the first leg at Elland Road on Wednesday 19 May. Despite the disappointment of failing to become the first Scottish side to reach the final of a major European trophy, Malky McDonald's Killie managed to defeat Royal Antwerp of Belgium 8-2 on aggregate and La Gantoise of Ghent 3-1 along the way, before Don Revie's men booked their ultimately doomed place in the finals against Dynamo Zagreb.
