Greenock born winger Alex McNab began his career with hometown club Greenock Morton in 1916, playing five seasons for Morton until his departure for the United States in 1924. McNab’s form in the early 1920’s earned two international caps with the Scotland. His first was a 2-0 away win over Ireland on 26th February 1921 followed by a 3-0 victory over England on 9th April 1921. Arguably the highlight of McNab’s career came on 27th April 1922, playing in Morton’s team that incredibly won the Scottish FA Cup beating Rangers in the Final with a Jimmy Gourlay strike, still the only major trophy in the club’s history.

In 1924, Greenock Morton offered McNab £4 per week. He considered this excessively low, but when he asked for a transfer, the club placed a prohibitively high fee on him to force him to stay with Greenock. When McNab received an offer from the Boston Soccer Club of the American Soccer League to play for £12 per week, McNab immediately left Scotland, having scored 54 goals in 288 matches for The Ton, for the United States. In America he played for Boston for four years, then Fall River Marksmen from 1928 to 1930, and a variety of teams thereafter including the New York Yankees and New Bedford Whalers. He also managed various American teams in the 1930’s, settling in the United States and dying in St Louis in 1960.

He was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2005.
