Raymond McKinnon was appointed to the Head Coaches position at Queen's Park in January 2020 as the club moved on from its amateur status to embrace professionalism, turning full time in May 2020.
McKinnon had been a player at eleven different clubs in an 18 year playing career, most notably at Dundee United (twice), Nottingham Forest and Aberdeen.
His managerial career kicked off at Brechin City, followed by spells at Raith Rovers, Dundee United, Greenock Morton and Falkirk.
An early end to the 2019/20 season due to Covid saw a push for the play offs stopped in its tracks, however the truncated 2020/21 season saw Queen's top the League Two table almost from the start, remaining unbeaten until the 19th game of the season, a new club record, and eventually finished with a 16 point lead at the top of the table.
McKinnon was suprisingly sacked by Queen's just ten days after lifting the League Two trophy.
