Kevin Duncan MacDonald (born 22 November 1960, Invernessmarker, Scotlandmarker) was a Scottish football player who formed part of the Liverpool "double" winning side of 1986.

He is currently reserve team coach at Aston Villa and previously worked as assistant manager of Ireland, with his ex-Liverpool team-mate Steve Staunton, who he used to coach at Aston Villa.

Career

MacDonald joined the Anfieldmarker club from Leicester City for £400,000 in November 1984. He had been discovered by Leicester while playing for the Highland Football League side, Caledonian

He never commanded a regular spot at Anfield, but he was in the team at the right time, helping Liverpool to the First Division title in 1986 and then to the "double" (only the third in the 20th century) when he helped them beat Everton in the FA Cup final at Wembleymarker.

At the start of the following season, MacDonald broke his leg. By the time he recovered Kenny Dalglish had settled on Steve McMahon for the central midfield role and there was to be no way back into the Liverpool first team. He later had spells on loan at his old club Leicester and also at Rangers. In June 1989 he made a permanent move to Coventry City and played out his career. In April 1989, shortly before he left Liverpool, MacDonald, along with his team-mates, rallied round the bereaved families of the Hillsborough disaster.
