Jamie MacDonald’s Killie career in numbers

Following the announcement that Jamie MacDonald will be departing after five seasons at Rugby Park, we thought we’d look back on his Killie career.

Club historian John Livingston delves into the numbers.

Appearances 133 (includes one substitute appearance)

  • Premiership – 109
  • League Cup – 12
  • Scottish Cup – 8 (includes one sub appearance v Rangers)
  • Premiership Play-Off – 2
  • Europa League – 2

Jamie kept 37 clean sheets in his 133 appearances for Killie.


Jamie saved six penalty kicks during his time with Killie – all of them in the Scottish Premiership

Jamie MacDonald saves Kyle Lafferty’s penalty.

Four of those saves came in three different matches against his former club Hearts, all at Tynecastle.

  • He saved two (from Jamie Walker and Abiola Duada) in a 1-0 defeat on February 27, 2016
  • He saved one from Dario Zanatta in a 4-0 loss on December 27, 2016
  • He saved in the final minute from Kyle Lafferty in a 1-1 draw on February 27, 2018

Steve Clarke’s first game as Kilmarnock manager on October 25, 2017 saw Jamie save a last-minute penalty from Daniel Candeias, which led to the move for Chris Burke’s memorable equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

His final penalty save came on September 29, 2018 at home to Motherwell as Curtis Main’s effort was saved as Killie recovered to win 3-1.
