Outfield Kit
Goalkeeper's Kit

In his first season 'Choccy' virtually guaranteed his place as a United legend, by becoming the first player since George Best in 1967/68 to score more than twenty League goals in a single campaign.

Although he never managed to repeat this feat he formed an attacking partnership with Mark Hughes that lasted until the arrival of Eric Cantona in November 1992. Only once in those five seasons did a United player score more goals than McClair.

The arrival of Mark Hughes in the summer of 1988 forced McClair into a slightly deeper role, and after the arrival of Cantona he increasingly played in United's midfield.

He was ever present when United won the Premier League title in 1992/93 but thereafter, though he remained at Old Trafford until June 1998, his appearances were more often than not from the subs bench,

He headed back north of the border to play for Motherwell, but announced his retirement just six months later to join up with Brian Kidd at Blackburn Rovers.

McClair returned to Old Trafford as youth team coach in 1999. He guided the Reserves to the Premier League title in 2001/02 and won the Youth Cup in 2003 with the Under 19 side.

He was appointed the Director of United's Youth Academy at the start of the 2006/07 season, and remained in the role until accepting the position as National Performance Director at the Scottish FA in February 2015. He took up the position on June 1st 2015.
