Scooped up by Celtic in 2012, Irvine spent time with Kilmarnock and Ross County where he developed a reputation as a versatile and energetic midfielder or centre-back.
His form in Scotland was noticed by Championship side Burton Albion, who successfully converted him into a box-to-box midfielder.
After finishing his debut season in England with 10 league goals and Burton's player of the year award, he was rewarded with a move to Hull City.
The midfielder spent three seasons at Hull and wore the captain’s armband on a handful of occasions in his final season at the club.
After 11 months without a club, Irvine returned to Scotland in January 2021, signing for Hibernian.
He immediately impressed with Hibs, establishing himself as a starter alongside his international teammate Martin Boyle.
Irvine carried his form onto the international stage, finishing with more goal contributions than any Socceroo during round two of qualifying.
Following the international window, he sealed a move to German outfit FC St. Pauli.
Best Socceroos moment:
Dangerous from set-pieces or arriving late into the box, Irvine opened his Socceroos account with a thumping header in a 2-0 win over the United Arab Emirates in March 2017.
Irvine spent two years in Melbourne Victory's youth set-up before being spotted by Celtic.
