Defender pens deal with the GreciansScotsman McAllister was most recently playing in the newly-formed Indian Super League, where he helped Kerala Blasters to the runners-up position in the inaugural championship, under the stewardship of former England goalkeeper David James.
Born in Glasgow, he began his playing career with Queen of the South, before moving on to spend four years with Aberdeen. McAllister then had a spell with Livingston, helping them to the Scottish League Cup title in 2004 – shortly before making his sole appearance for the Scotland national team – and then moved to Hearts where he would win the Scottish Cup in 2006.
His first move south of the border came later that summer, starting a six-year stint with Bristol City. He won League 1 promotion in his first season and came close to making it consecutive promotions – it was Hull City that were 1-0 winners against the Robins in the Championship play-off final.
McAllister then spent two years with Yeovil Town – earning League 1 promotion via the play-offs with the Glovers in 2013 – and featured 40 times for the Somerset club in their Championship campaign last season.
Jamie will be available to represent the Grecians tomorrow against Mansfield Town.
