Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway born centre forward Bob McDougall had played for junior clubs St Cuthbert Wanderers and Dumfries before he joined First Division club Liverpool in November 1913, making his Football League debut at West Bromwich Albion in January 1914, scoring in a 1-0 win at The Hawthorns. McDougall also played once in the FA Cup, in the second round victory at Gillingham, as the club progressed towards the FA Cup Final, in 1914, where they would lose to Burnley in their first Cup Final.

McDougall was one of 27 different players used during the 1913-14 season, making 7 League appearances and his final appearance came in September 1914 in a 4-0 defeat at The Hawthorns, with the Official Liverpool programme noting: “McDougall was tried at centre-forward, but he was not a success; the young Scot has not got off the mark this season yet, and even in the reserve team has failed to fulfil expectations.”

With the onset of the First World War forcing the suspension of peacetime football in England in May 1915, he returned to Scotland later in 1915 joining Falkirk, making his Scottish League debut against Raith Rovers at Brockville Park that October, and for whom he played for six years scoring 13 times in 96 appearances. During that time he also was loaned to Partick Thistle during 1918-19. In 1921 he joined Ayr United, spending a year at Somerset Park before joining Queen of the South in 1922. He played a final two Scottish League seasons with The Doonhamers before a return to St Cuthbert Wanderers in 1924.
