With a professional career that saw Jimmy make over 200 appearances for Manchester United, earn 73 caps for Northern Ireland and play for Sunderland, West Brom and Rangers, it is unlikely that he will class the 55 minutes he was a City player as a particular highlight. The match was a 3-0 home defeat against Macclesfield and it was a red card that brought his City career to such an abrupt end. Headed to Raith Rovers almost immediately. Recently appointed assistant manager at Aberdeen.
