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 16 it affected McNulty, with him 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 nine appearances in his debut season in the first team.[6] The following season in the Second Division he made only four 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 Sheffield in a 2–1 League Cup first 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][17]

Portsmouth (loan)[edit]

On 6 November 2015, McNulty joined Portsmouth on a short-term loan deal.[18] On 7 November 2015 he made his debut in the first round FA Cup game against Macclesfield Town, with Portsmouth winning the game 2–1. On 24 November 2015, he scored a hat-trick in a 6–0 win against York City.[19] On 4 January 2016, McNulty's loan at Portsmouth was extended until the end of the season after scoring six goals in 11 appearances.[20]

Bradford City (loan)[edit]

On 31 August 2016, McNulty Joined Bradford City on a season long loan deal.[21] He was recalled by Sheffield United on 2 January 2017.[22]

Coventry City[edit]

On 18 May 2017, McNulty agreed to join League 2 side Coventry City on a two-year deal.[23] He scored his first goal for the club in his second appearance in a 2–0 win against Grimsby Town.[24] On 12 May 2018, in the home play off semi-final game against Notts County, McNulty scored his 100th career goal - a controversial penalty - to make the scoreline 1-1 going into the away leg at Meadow Lane, where he scored again in Coventry's 4-1 win, sending them to the League 2 final on 28 May. In the final, McNulty was named man-of-the-match in a 3-1 win over Exeter City which saw Coventry promoted to back to League One.[25]
