In total, MacGillivray made 135 appearances on the south coast.

He helped Pompey secure two play-off finishes, while he made a crucial save from Lee Cattermole in Kenny Jackett's side's penalty shootout victory over Sunderland in the Checkatrade Trophy final at Wembley in March 2019.

And although that wasn’t to be, he sent a classy message to the Fratton faithful after joining Charlton.

MacGillivray wrote on Twitter: ‘Thank you @Pompey for some amazing memories.

‘I can’t speak highly enough about my time at Portsmouth and want to thank everyone at the club for helping me create memories that I’ll cherish forever.

‘Also, a massive thank you to the fans for the huge support the last few years.’
