● Jackie McNamara, 2011 (BBC)

born in Scotland

John Robert McNamara was born on Wednesday, 24th October, 1973, in Glasgow. He had one spell as manager at Firhill.

MANAGERIAL SPELL

(Fri-15-Apr-2011 ↔ Wed-30-Jan-2013; 1y,9m,15d)

Post-McCall, Jackie McNamara, whilst still a player, took on the caretaker manager's role, and, 4 weeks later was made the permanent new manager, signing a rolling one-year deal. He would be assisted by fellow-Jag and ex-Celtic team-mate Simon Donnelly. They built a decent and hungry young team, and were promotion hopefuls in season 2012-13.

(37y,5m,23d) Sat-16-Apr-2011 [h] D1-1 Ross County (SFL First Division - game 32)
first – last of 83
(39y,3m,2d) Sat-26-Jan-2013 [h] W2-1 Cowdenbeath (SFL First Division - game 20)

Despite being at a critical stage in the season, Thistle were good enough to let Dundee United speak to McNamara in January, 2013. As a result of these discussions, McNamara and Donnelly resigned to take up managerial positions at the Premier League club. Legally, Thistle were due compensation for the loss of their contracted management team, but collecting this from the dishonourable regime at Tannadice proved to be problematic. In May, McNamara disgraced himself by filing a counter-claim in the form of a £40,000 promotion bonus, forever staining his reputation with many Thistle fans.

Jackie was in charge of Thistle for 83 games in total, as well as managing at Dundee United (2013-2015) and York City (2015-2016).
