Kevin William Gallacher (born November 23 1966 in Clydebankmarker) is a Scottishmarker former professional footballer and now a sports pundit. He is the grandson of former Celtic forward Patsy Gallacher.

Career

Gallacher started his Scottish League career with Dundee United, where he spent seven years as part of a successful team under the guidance of Jim McLean. He appeared in Dundee United's UEFA Cup Final in 1987 where they lost on aggregate to IFK Göteborg. He won his first Scotland cap against Colombia in 1987 during this period. Gallacher scored Dundee United's goal in the 1988 Scottish Cup final, in the 2-1 defeat by Celtic. He moved to Coventry City in 1990 and became a fans favourite for three years.

He then joined Blackburn Roversmarker in March 1993, where he was also a firm favourite.

Unfortunately, two broken legs (the second sustained in his first game after the original injury) restricted him to just one Premier League game in 1994-95, when Blackburn were league champions. His only league game of the season came against Crystal Palace, when he scored a crucial goal in a 2-1 win.

He returned to full effectiveness in 1996-97, however, scoring 10 goals to help avoid a relegation scare. In 1997-98 he formed a potent partnership with Chris Sutton, scoring 16 goals himself as Blackburn finished 6th. However, injuries and inconsistencies meant he missed much of 1998-99, although he was the team's top goalscorer with 5 goals. Despite this, they were relegated just 4 seasons after winning the title.

He moved on to Newcastle United after Blackburn's relegation to become Bobby Robson's first signing. He was mostly used as a right winger, a role he adapted to superbly, and despite a lack of goals, was fairly popular with the Newcastle fans for his work rate.

Spells at Preston North End (where he scored twice against Kidderminster Harriers and Sheffield United), Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town followed before hanging up his boots in 2002, ending a career which had seen him score a total of 106 goals in 430 games in the English and Scottish leagues.

He now undertakes media work as a Co-commentator and Studio Analyst variously for BBC Radio 5 Live, Sky Sports, Setanta and Channel 5.In addition to this he is also a columnist in the Lancashire Telegraph.

Gallacher won 53 caps for Scotland. He represented Scotland at Euro 92, Euro 96, and the 1998 FIFA World Cup. He scored 9 goals for his country. He has recently received critical acclaim for his book, Tartan Turmoil: The Fall & Rise of Scottish Football, a semi-autobiographical look at the problems faced by Scottish football.
