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.

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.

Following the international window, he sealed a move to German outfit FC St. Pauli.
