Born in Falkirk, McGrandles is a product of the Falkirk youth academy, moving into the first team at the start of the 2012–13 season.[2] He made his first team début on 29 September 2012, against Cowdenbeath at Central Park,[3] five days after his 17th birthday. His first senior goal came seven weeks later, against Livingston at Almondvale in the 84th minute.[4]
