Jim had been at Celtic, Dundee (loan), Nottingham Forest and Coventry City before he joined United in May 1986, in the same deal that brought Dave Bowman to Tannadice.

He became a regular in the side for nine years, collecting runners-up medals in the UEFA Cup and in three Scottish Cups before he finally collected a winnerís medal in 1994.

Already a youth international, he achieved full international recognition while he was with United, winning ten full Scotland caps and was also capped at Under-21 level as an over age player.

Jim left to join Raith Rovers in 1995 but a year later he was back with United for a second spell, and in June 1997 he joined Dundee

After becoming an important part of the United team that reached the UEFA Cup final in 1987, McInally made his Scotland debut against Belgium in Brussels, and won his 2nd cap in a Rous Cup match versus Brazil at Hampden at the end of that season. After being in and out of the International set up over the next three years, he broke back into the team in the lead up to the European Championship Finals, playing in Scotland's third match of the competition in Sweden, the 3-0 win over the C.I.S. His last cap was a World Cup qualifier in Portugal in April 1993.
