Career[edit]

Livingston[edit]

McNulty attended Portobello High School and played for the youth teams of Hutchison Vale, Celtic and Hibernian.[1] After being released by Hibernian at age sixteen affects McNulty, believing he "wasn't going to make it in football" and "it was over".[2] He signed for Livingston aged 16,[1][3] before making a goalscoring debut at senior level on 31 October 2009 after coming on as a late substitute in a 3–0 away win over Montrose.[4] His prolific goal scoring record at under-19 level earned him a new three-year contract on 17 February 2010.[5] In all he made 9 appearance in his debut season in the first team.[6] The following season in the Second Division he made only 4 appearances in an injury troubled campaign.[7] Season 2011–12 saw him emerge as Livingston's top goal scorer back in the First Division, netting 16 goals in all competitions.[8] His form saw him attract the attention of clubs south of the border such as Sheffield United[9] and Derby County.[10] He extended his stay with Livingston on 25 July 2013 by signing a new two-year contract.[11]

Sheffield United[edit]

On 19 May 2014, McNulty joined Sheffield United on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee which would become effective on 1 July 2014.[12] The transfer fee is believed to be between £95,000[13] and £125,000.[14] McNulty scored his first competitive goal for the blades in a 2–1, Capital One Cup 1st round win over Mansfield Town on 13 August 2014. In November 2014, McNulty was ruled out as injured after sustaining a facial injury after an "altercation" in a night club in Edinburgh with United manager Nigel Clough claiming that McNulty was the "innocent party".[15] On 16 December 2014, McNulty scored the only goal in a 1-0 home victory over Southampton to send United to the semi-finals of the League Cup.[16]
