Biography


McSwegan started his career with Rangers, where he scored 5 goals in only 24 appearances during his six years at Ibrox, including a goal against Marseille in the 1992-93 Champions League; this goal was the first goal ever scored in the Champions League proper by a substitute. His first team opportunities at Rangers, however, appeared to be limited and in 1993 he joined Notts County for £400,000. Two seasons later he returned to Scotland with Dundee United for £375,000 where he remained for three seasons, scoring 42 goals.

He joined Hearts in 1998 on a free transfer where he notched up 31 goals in 98 appearances. By 2002, however, McSwegan had fallen out of favour at Hearts and subsequently had loan spells in England with Barnsley and Luton Town before joining Kilmarnock where he remained for two seasons, scoring 17 goals.

His next professional club was Ross County where he played 39 games, scoring just 1 goal against Queen of the South in two injury-ravaged seasons. Despite these problems, McSwegan returned to top flight football, when signed by Inverness Caledonian Thistle in September 2006 on a short-term deal. McSwegan left Inverness Caledonian Thistle at the end of the 2006–07 season and joined Peterhead.

McSwegan joined Clyde on 14 March 2008, after previously training with the club and appearing in reserve games.

In June 2008, McSwegan signed a one year contract extension with the Broadwood side. He scored three goals in his second season, with two goals against Queen's Park in the League Cup and a late winner in the league against Livingston.[8] This meant that all six of his goals for Clyde came in the Broadwood Stadium. McSwegan was released by Clyde in June 2009 along with the rest of the out of contract players, due to the club's financial position.
