Ally began his playing career at St. Johnstone, playing there for a while before moving to Sunderland.

Ally also holds numerous other records for the club, including number of league goals scored, number of Scottish League Cup goals scored and most goals scored in European competitions. McCoist also featured heavily in Scottish international football during his career, gaining 61 caps and scoring 19 goals in the process. Towards the end of his playing career, McCoist started his media career. Between 1996 and 2007, he was a team captain on the BBC sports quiz A Question of Sport.
