Background: Experienced forward who signed for Wanderers in the January 2007 transfer from Northampton Town for an 'undisclosed fee'. Originally started his senior playing career with Edgware Town before a transfer to Charlton Athletic at the age of 20. Moved to Peterborough United in the summer of 1997 but after various loan spells and a relatively unsuccessful time at Leyton Orient, came to promenence when he scored over 40 goals in a three and half year spell at his home town club of Barnet. Subsequently had three year spells at Colchester United and Northampton Town where he took his total Football League appearances above the 500 mark and his goal tally pushing towards 150.
Manager Paul Lambert commented at the time of the singing, "He's an experienced striker who can score goals. Along with Tommy (Mooney), Jermaine (Easter) and Fola (Onibuje) he'll bring another dimension to our attack and we're thrilled to have him here." While McGleish said, "I've played as a professional for the last twelve years now and my goalscoring record has been good so long may it continue. I've been impressed with what I've seen here so far and I see this club as definite promotion candidates."
McGleish scored five times before the end of the 2006/7 season as Wanderers missed out on the play-offs and promotion. The following season he finished as top scorer at the Club with 26 League goals (including four credited in the away game at Mansfield on 8th January 2008). However, Wanderers were to miss out on promotion again, this time despite reaching the play-offs, and the departure of Manager Paul Lambert shortly afterwards promoted an outburst in the press from McGleish. He was quoted in the Bucks Free Press as saying, "If I was a player out of contract, if anybody wants to talk to you you've got to talk to them. The Club might not like me saying that and I'll probably get reprimanded for it but to be fair I'm not worried. If my contract was up this year I would be talking to people already."
His fall out with the Club continued under new boss Peter Taylor, where he was fined for removing his shirt and throwing it to the floor after being substituted in a League game versus Brentford in September 2008 and culminating in a transfer request the following month and an eventual loan back to former club Northampton Town on 28th October 2008. McGleish returned to Wycombe two months later and after appearing to settle his differences with Peter Taylor, returned to the Wanderers First Team in January 2009. However, on 12th February 2009 he was loaned to 'League One' side Leyton Orient until the end of the season when he was released by Peter Taylor.
