A Shot at Glory is a film by Michael Corrente produced in 1999 and released in 2002, starring Robert Duvall and the Scottish football player Ally McCoist. It had limited commercial and critical success. The film features the fictional Scottish football club Kilnockie FC, based on a North of Scotland Highland Football League club, as they attempt to reach their first ever Scottish Cup Final. The final game is against Rangers.
Robert Duvall plays the club coach, Gordon McLeod. Jackie McQuillan (Ally McCoist) is the team's striker who has recently been signed from Arsenal. McQuillan is a legendary ex-Celtic player as well as the coach's son-in-law, and has a reputation for being troublesome. The two men put their personal problems aside as they try to prevent the small fishing town of Kilnockie from losing its club, which is owned by an American (played by Michael Keaton) who wants to move the team to Dublin in Ireland.

Filming took place at several locations across Scotland, including Boghead Park (the former ground of Dumbarton), Dumfries club Queen of the South's Palmerston Park ground, Kilmarnock's Rugby Park ground and Hampden Park. The majority of scenes representing the town of Kilnockie were filmed in Crail, Fife. Several extras in the film were then players of Raith Rovers, including future Celtic player Didier Agathe. Duvall regularly went to see Raith Rovers to learn from John McVeigh, the manager, on whom his character was based.
A soundtrack for the film was written by Mark Knopfler.
