Joseph John Paul McKee (born 31 October 1992 in Glasgow, Scotland) is a Scottish footballer playing for Falkirk.

He has played for Championship club Bolton Wanderers, and also played for Burnley, St Mirren, Greenock Morton and Livingston. Joe signed a 6 month deal with Falkirk on 31 January 2017.

Joe was born in Glasgow despite numerous web sources stating that he was born in Linlithgow due to an administrative error when he first signed for Livingston.[4]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

McKee started his career in the youth team of Dundee United in 2000 at the age of seven.[5] He spent five years at Tannadice Park and progressed well at the club but left in 2005 due to unhappiness and joined Livingston.[5] He settled well into life at Almondvale, as he knew youth teammate Robert Snodgrass as they went to the same school, St Mungo's Academy in Glasgow.[5] McKee had a successful season for the under-19s in the 2008–09 season scoring 13 goals in 17 starts as they won the league title for the second consecutive season.[5] He signed full-time for the club in October 2008, and went with the first team squad on a training tour to Italy playing against Parma Reserves.[5] In March 2009 he was part of the squad for the Scottish Division One matches against St Johnstone and Queen of the South.[5] In the summer of 2009, Livingston went into administration and faced demotion to the Scottish Division Three.[6] He made his debut for Livingston on 1 August 2009 in the Scottish League Cup in a 3–0 defeat to Albion Rovers, replacing Michael Torrance in the second half.[7] He then played in the first league game of the season, a 2–0 win over Montrose, coming on as a second-half substitute for Anthony McParland.[7]

Burnley[edit]

Burnley manager Owen Coyle brought McKee to Turf Moor in August 2009 and signed a two-year scholarship after training with the club in the summer.[8] Burnley had to play Livingston in a pre-season friendly at Almondvale as part of the deal, and also pay a five-figure sum when he signed a professional contract.[9] He played primarily in the youth team in his first season at the club, but did feature in six games in the Premier Reserve League scoring one goal against Bolton Wanderers. In the 2010–11 season he was top scorer for the youth team and also featured regurlarly in the reserve side.[10] In June 2011, he signed his first professional contract with the club on a one-year deal after the end of his scholarship.[11] He was involved with the first team in the 2011–12 pre-season games and played in his first game for the Clarets in a 0–0 draw with Oldham Athletic, coming on in the last minute for Ross Wallace.[12] He was given the squad number 34 during pre-season.[10] On 9 August 2011, McKee was named on the bench in a 6–3 win over Burton Albion in the Football League Cup first round. However, he was an unused substitute.[13]

In April 2012, it announced that McKee was released at the end of his Contract by Burnley.[14]

St Mirren Loan[edit]

On 23 August 2011, he joined Scottish Premier League side St Mirren on a four-month loan until January 2012.[15] He made his debut for the club on 28 August 2011 in a 2–0 home defeat to Celtic, where he came on as a late substitute for Nigel Hasselbaink.[16] Having made two appearance for St Mirren, McKee loan spell with the club ended, but manager Danny Lennon hopes that he will become a better player.[17]

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

On 3 July, McKee tweeted that he had signed for Bolton Wanderers, reuniting with former Burnley manager, Owen Coyle.[18] This was confirmed a day later by Bolton's official Twitter page and McKee was given number 35.[18]

McKee was released by current Bolton boss Dougie Freedman at the end of the 2012–13 season, having made no appearance or even on the substitute bench in his Bolton career.[19]

Greenock Morton[edit]

In May 2013, McKee joined Scottish club Greenock Morton, playing in the Scottish Championship.[20] McKee signed a contract extension until summer 2015 in September 2013.[21]

Carlisle United[edit]

McKee left Morton on a Bosman free transfer to join English side Carlisle United.[22] He scored his first goal for Carlisle in an EFL Trophy tie against Fleetwood Town on 9 November 2016.[23]

Falkirk[edit]

On transfer deadline day, 31st January 2017, McKee signed a 6 month deal to move back north to Falkirk. Joe teamed up with long time friend Charlie Harris who is in the U23 squad as a physio."It was an easy decision. To come back up north and see Charlie clinched the deal" said Joe. [24]

International[edit]

McKee has represented Scotland at under-16, under-17 and under-19 level.[25] He was first called up to Scotland U19 squad in May 2011 for the two friendlies away to Denmark.[26] He started in the first friendly on 10 May in Copenhagen, playing 70 minutes as Scotland lost 3–2.[27] He was a substitute for the game two days later in Ballerup in another defeat, coming on in the second half for Rory McKenzie.[28]
