The agony, he could handle. The flak, he was long used to. But when, on that afternoon last January, he heard fans baying for an end to his livelihood, he saw red.

"See that day, if I could have got back up, I was going in. I'd lost the plot," the Hamilton Academical midfielder says. "The Dundee fans were wishing my career was over. I've got kids to look after, I've got a wife - why would you want somebody's career over because of what you see on a football park?"

 

What the BBC forgot to mention is that he got hurt trying to end the career of 18 year old Henvey during a sickening tackle.

While I take no pleasure from any player getting injured and the thought of their career being over, I thought it was Karma in this case.

Your thought's on this?

I remember at the time he made a big thing about NM being a decent guy and coming to see him after the game to check he was OK. Playing the sympathy card as if he was the innocent party. Why not just put the photo we've all seen online and ask him to explain it.

I know I'm going to be alone in this but on reflection, I personally think he didn't mean to hurt Henvey. It would have been a really really stupid tackle to make in that area and cost them the game.

The conditions were horrific with the wind and rain so I could see how someone could do something like that - I remember Ben Hutchinson for us trying to put pressure on the Dunfermline 'keeper in similar weather and then shattering the guys leg in multiple places. The fact that he come off pretty badly himself too suggests that he made a challenge which he then lost control of. It should have been a sending off as it was very reckless but I don't think that always means that someone has actually meant to hurt.

He's obviously got the history and he's a bit of a nutter but I don't really think that sort of thing fits his previous style either. He's certainly combative seems more like he has wee tantrums and gets into trouble for handbags more than anything else.

I agree with your assessment about the weather and it was probably an accident, but his injury was caused by a reckless challenge on Henvey who was put out the game for the rest of the season.

If he doesn't understand why the Dundee fans were furious with him, then maybe he needs a reality check. I'm saddened that he got the abuse he did and was out injured, but he will not get an ounce of sympathy from me while he is putting out those bleeding heart stories.

I know what you're saying. No need to go about talking about it but I suspect that the press are maybe questioning him about it rather than him bringing it up unprompted. It was quite a memorable moment.

Short odds on him getting sent off at Dens after the split. Should be easy to wind him up.

I don't think McIntyre plays like that, but I am sure that the fans will have a nice wee warm reception for him though!

I wonder if the picture showing his tackle is anywhere in his head, if as a pro he fails to understand or comprehend why the fans have responded as they did he deserves all he gets. All he had to do was apologise at the time and it would have been consigned to history, an atrocious tackle with no thought for Henvy.

Let him bring it up, let him see the tackle again and again where he will suffer the consequences of his own actions. 🤬🤬

Does he really expect us to believe that’s the worst abuse he’s ever had from supporters in his career? Sorry Darian,  not buying that.

100% McKinnon is undeniably an animal. He obviously wants a few quid for regurgitating the same old story. Let's send him down like the judge did.

No, it was definitely Henvey.

I doubt for one second he thought he would try and break Henvey's leg but the long and the short of it is that he damaged himself committing a horrible foul. No point greeting about it afterwards, in the polarised world of football fans, it just comes across as whiny. It will be the digital equivalent of chip wrappers tomorrow though.

I was at the game . Don’t remember anything in particular about his treatment from our support but do remember his horrific challenge . Also remember aj s winner and general bedlam. Manager checked him . Did canning or McKinnon check Matty Henvey? . Dry yer eyes mckinnon. Hopefully be in the championship next season with yer pish team

So the most unlikeable player in Scottish football has singled Dundee fans out as the support he hates. Pleasing.

No they never. Second paragraph  

MacKinnon had clattered Dundee's goal-scorer Matt Henvey with a thumping tackle that would end the teenage striker's season and injured himself in the process, enraging the away fans. While he was off receiving treatment, Dundee scored a stoppage-time winner.

Second time in a few weeks BBC have peddled this story, though at least they've now mentioned the incident that was at the root of the Dundee fans giving him deserved stick.

The scary bit in that article, though, is the thought of a production line of MacKinnon/Imrie clones.....

He and Dougie Imrie - another Hamilton stalwart - coach the club's under-16s and are working to mould the next James McArthur, Lewis Ferguson, Greg Docherty or Eamonn Brophy.

"I can see myself in quite a few of them. You think to yourself, if they weren't playing football, they could be in a bit of bother. Those are the ones you try and help," MacKinnon says.

"It's a good thing because I've been there. You can tell them, 'listen, that's the path there, or do you want to go down the path to where I am now?'."

What a bizarre article for the BBC to go with. Is it a slow news day or just on trend with the recent highlighting of every little incident that happens at a football game in an attempt to show football fans in a bad light?

Of all the players to try and play the poor me sympathy card you've got to laugh that it's him. A player/thug who showed no regard for Henvey's career complains about the same incident.

I did find it amusing that he claims to not be the person he is perceived to be on the pitch. The next line of the article then goes on to list his previous off field thuggish behaviour. Obviously people deserve second chances (him included) but don't try to claim to the press that you're an angel and it's Dundee fans that are the thugs. Most Dundee fans haven't done a 4 stretch for assault!

The only thing that bothers me in that article is that one of our supporters phoned Hamilton to apologise. 

f**k them.
