Ryan McGeever (born 30 April 1994) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Queen's Park. McGeever began his career with Queen's Park, and signed for Falkirk in the summer of 2012.[2] During his time at Falkirk, he had loan spells at Peterhead and Arbroath (twice).

Club career[edit]

Falkirk[edit]

McGeever joined Falkirk in the summer of 2012, making his first team début in the Scottish Football League First Division against Dumbarton on 20 October 2012.[3] On his second start for the club, McGeever earned the ire of Partick Thistle boss Jackie McNamara for a "shocking" challenge on Thistle's Stuart Bannigan.[4]

In January 2013, McGeever signed a new three-and-a-half year contract with Falkirk, tying him to the club until 2016.[5]

Peterhead (loan)[edit]

McGeever joined Scottish League Two side Peterhead on a season-long loan on 22 August 2013.[6] His Peterhead debut came two days later, in the 2–2 draw against Elgin City.[7] Having been deemed surplus to requirements, the loan was cut short in November 2013,[8] after McGeever had made nine appearances in all competitions for the club.[7]

Arbroath (loans)[edit]

On 31 March 2014, McGeever signed for Scottish League One club Arbroath on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.[9]

On 8 January 2015, McGeever returned to Arbroath for a second loan spell.[10]

Queen's Park[edit]

On 7 August 2015, McGeever signed for Queen's Park, returning to the club three years after first leaving.[11][12]
