Alexander Scott Rae, (born 30 September, 1969 in Glasgowmarker), is a former Scottishmarker professional footballer, who is first team coach at MK Dons.

Career

Rae started his career as a youngster at boyhood heroes Rangers but was rejected by boss Graeme Souness. He dropped down to junior leagues with Bishopbriggsmarker before he joined Falkirk and enjoyed a successful two years before heading south to sign for Millwall in 1990 for £100,000.

He made his Millwall debut on 25 August 1990. His form for Millwall earned him a big money move to Premier League Sunderland for £1 million in 1996, where he established himself as a crowd-pleasing, combative midfielder. His career took a downturn though, as he descended into alcoholism, leading to him attending a rehab clinic during 1998. He stayed sober after this treatment and further rehabilitation, and later became a patron for the Sporting Chance clinic.

Back on the field, he won promotion as champions back to the Premier League with Sunderland in 1998–99 and played regularly in the top flight. By 2001, he had dropped out of manager Peter Reid's plans and was sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 2001, for £1.2 million.

He quickly became an important player for Wolves, winning the fans' player of the season award in his first campaign. The following year, he helped them back into the Premier League when they won the play-offs in 2003. He had a strong year in the top flight, finishing as the club's leading scorer with 8 goals – his best ever seasonal tally – but could not prevent the club's relegation.

Rae re-signed for Rangers in May 2004, and won the league title in his first season. He only featured 12 times in his second season, however, and was later released by the club.

He was appointed as player/manager of on 24 May 2006. He led the club to third place in the First Division in his first season and took them a place higher in his second. He gave up playing for the 2008-09 season but was sacked on 20 October 2008 with the team in eighth place in the league. Following this, Rae travelled to Sweden as part of his work towards a UEFA Pro Licence.

In July 2009 he joined MK Dons, on a temporary basis with a view to a permanent deal, as first team coach working under Paul Ince.
