Biography


The grandson of Celtic legend Patsy Gallacher and nephew of Dundee's Tommy Gallacher, Kevin joined United from Duntocher Boys Club in September 1983 and immediately began playing in the reserves. An attacking player who had been part of the national youth squad, he made his first team debut as a substitute against Neuchatel Xamax in a UEFA Cup tie in December 1985, quickly followed by his first starting place three days later against Rangers at Ibrox, and quickly became a regular in the first team squad. Signing a long-term contract in March 1986, by the end of that year he was part of the Scotland Under-21 set up.

Kevin was an important player for the Club in season 1986-87, helping United reach the UEFA Cup final against IFK Gothenburg, and he played in the second leg to collect a runners-up medal. His goal against Barcelona at Tannadice in the second minute of the quarter final is the stuff of legend. Kevin played in the Scottish Cup final against St Mirren that same season but was again on the losing side. He recorded a hat-trick against Dunfermline Athletic in February 1988, and in May that year he scored a stunning opening goal in the Scottish Cup final against Celtic, but United lost out in that final also. Three days after that disappointment, he won his first Scotland cap in a Rous Cup match against Colombia at Hampden, which was followed by an appearance against England at Wembley.

He had another good season with United in 1988-89, notching another hat-trick in January 1989 against Hamilton Academical, and gained two further international caps with games in Norway and Italy.

Constantly linked with a move to Celtic, at the beginning of the next season there were rumours of interest from Coventry City, and in January 1990 he moved there for a reported £900,000. He finished as the club’s top scorer in both of his seasons at Highfield Road, and in March 1993 he moved to Blackburn Rovers for £1.5 million. A regular in their side over the next six seasons, he was unlucky enough to suffer two broken legs which saw him miss most of the 1994-95 season when Blackburn won the E nglish Premier League.

He stayed at Ewood Park until October 1999 when he transferred to Newcastle United. Two years later he went to Preston North End and then to Sheffield Wednesday, before ending his career at Hudderfield Town in 2003. Kevin went on to make over 50 appearances for Scotland, taking part in the European Championships in 1992 and 1996 and the World Cup finals in 1998. After retiring he became a football pundit on TV and radio.

After his move to England in 1990, Gallacher became a regular in the Scotland squad, playing in all three matches in Sweden for the national sides first appearance in the European Championship finals in 1992. He went on to earn 53 caps for his country and competed in the European Championship finals of 1996 in England and the World Cup finals in France in 1998.
