Ryan Michael McStay (born 4 December 1985 in Bellshill, Scotland), is a Scottish professional footballer who was most recently joint player-manager of Shettleston in the Scottish Juniors, West Region. McStay has previously played in the Scottish Premier League for Falkirk.
McStay started his career with Falkirk at U16 D-Form level, before playing for Partick Thistle, Dumbarton and Albion Rovers. McStay also had a loan spell at Queen of the South when he was at the Bairns.
At Falkirk, McStay scored the goal that got the club promoted to the SPL in the 2004–2005 season. Despite this, McStay was released by Falkirk in the summer of 2007 as he was in search of first-team football elsewhere. McStay signed for Partick Thistle on 1 June 2007, as one of three signings by new manager Ian McCall.
On 18 July 2011, McStay signed for his local and newly promoted, Second Division club Albion Rovers on a one-year contract. McStay left the Coatbridge club after the 2011-12 season and then signed for Ayr United on a 12 month contract.
On 3 July 2014, McStay signed for Annan Athletic. This was the second time that Jim Chapman, the Black and Golds' manager had McStay as a player, having played at the Sons when Chapman was in charge there. McStay was then announced as one of the joint player-managers at Shettleston in March 2016, alongside his Galabankies team-mate Peter Weatherson, with their tenure to commence at the start of the 2016-17 season in the Scottish Juniors, West Region.
McStay departed Shettleston by mutual consent, due to the club's financial problems, alongside joint player-manager Weatherson on 9 January 2017, after a 1-1 draw at home to his former club, Irvine Meadow on 7 January 2017.
