Paul McMullan (born 25 February 1996) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a forward for Dundee United. McMullan began his career with Celtic and has also had loan spells at Greenock Morton, Stenhousemuir, St Mirren and Dunfermline Athletic.

Career[edit]

Celtic[edit]

Born in Stirling, McMullan began his career in the under-19 team at Celtic.

Stenhousemuir (loan)[edit]

On 23 January 2015, he joined Scottish League One club Stenhousemuir on loan for the remainder of the season.[1] He made his senior debut the following day, playing the full 90 minutes of a 1–1 draw with Ayr United at Ochilview Park, scoring his team's goal.[2] On 14 February, he opened the scoring away to Dunfermline Athletic, who came from behind to defeat Stenhousemuir 3–2.[3] McMullan's only other goal of 14 league appearances came on 11 April in a defeat by the same score at Greenock Morton.[4] Stenhousemuir finished in the relegation play-off places, but stayed up with a 2–1 aggregate victory over Queen's Park: McMullan's free-kick set up Jamie McCormack to head the only goal of the first leg on 13 May,[5] and he also assisted Colin McMenamin in the second leg three days later.[6]

St Mirren (loan)[edit]

On 13 July 2015, McMullan was loaned to Scottish Championship club St Mirren for the 2015–16 season.[7] He made his debut 12 days later, playing the full 90 minutes of a 3–1 home win over Berwick Rangers in the first round of the Scottish Challenge Cup.[8] On 7 August, he made his league debut for the team in a defeat by the same score to Rangers at Ibrox.[9] Twenty-two days later, he scored his only goal for the team from Paisley, taking four minutes to open a 1–1 draw against Livingston at St. Mirren Park; the result meant his team had not won yet in four league games of the season.[10]

In January 2016, McMullan's loan was ended by Saints, and he returned to Celtic. In total, he played 22 games for the club, scoring once.[11]

Greenock Morton (loan)[edit]

McMullan was loaned to Greenock Morton on 24 February 2016, making his debut in a 3–0 Championship win at Hibernian on the same day.[12] On 15 March at Cappielow, he scored his first goal for the Ton, putting them 3–0 up at half time in an eventual 3–2 win over Queen of the South.[13]

Dunfermline Athletic (loan)[edit]

On 4 July 2016, McMullan was loaned to newly promoted Championship team Dunfermline Athletic, as PJ Crossan made the move in the other direction on a permanent basis.[14]

Dundee United[edit]

On 23 June 2017, McMullan signed a two-year contract with Dundee United.[15]

International[edit]

McMullan represented Scotland at the under-16,[16] under-17,[17] under-19[18] and under-21 levels. He made his debut for the under-21 team in March 2017, appearing in a goalless draw against Estonia.[19]
