The possibility of versatile defender Dave joining St Johnstone had been mooted on several occasions during the 2008/2009 season and that campaign had only been finished a matter of days when Mackay and his Livingston team mate Murray Davidson were recruited from the West Lothian side.

Mackay started his senior career at Dens Park and over the course of five seasons he played over one hundred games for the Dark Blues as well as gaining further experience on loan to Brechin City and Arbroath.

In the summer of 2004, Dave made a move south to Oxford United and enjoyed a productive season, missing only two of their forty six League Two matches. However, Dave wanted to return to Scotland for family reasons and the then Livingston manager Paul Lambert took him to the Almondvale side.

Dave was a hugely influential in his four seasons with the West Lothian side but at the end of the 2008/2009 season he agreed to move to St Johnstone and he enjoyed a superbly consistent season at SPL level, highlighted by the fact that he swept the boards at the Player of the Year awards.

Keen to secure such a talented player on a longer term deal, Dave was given a two year contract extension in the summer of 2010 which ties him to the club until 2013.

His consistently high quality performances in defence continued throughout the opening months of the 2010/2011 campaign during which he was named vice-captain and with the departure of Jody Morris in the summer of 2012, 'Cup tie' as he is known, was elevated to position of club captain.

In January 2013, Dave accepted a further deal which will take him through to May 2015.

Dave was captain of the history making Saints team that defeated Dundee United 2 - 0 in the Scottish Cup Final played at Celtic Park on 17 May 2014.
