The ex-Scotland international is currently in charge of York City, and has been found guilty of not paying the £86 fare for a train journey between Edinburgh and York on April 11, according to the York Press.
The 42-year-old was summonsed to appear before York magistrates on Friday, where he pleaded guilty to travelling on a railway without obtaining a ticket and was ordered to pay almost £500 by way of a fine and other court costs.
The ordeal caps a pretty unhappy time in York for McNamara.
After taking over the Minstermen in 2015, McNamara failed to keep the club in League Two, and the club were subsequently relegated out of the English Football League.
Moreover, this season hasn’t started much brighter, with the recent 2-0 defeat to Barrow leaving York just two points above the National League relegation zone.
Pretty embarrassing, eh? Perhaps we’ll see him back coaching in Scotland sooner rather than later.
