Alex McLeish



Capped 77 times by Scotland, Alex served Aberdeen with distinction for a staggering 18 years. With the Dons, he won a Cup Winners Cup medal, three Premier League badges, a Super Cup winnerโ€™s medal, five Scottish cup winner’s medals and two League Cup winners medals and he played in 458 league matches.

By the early 1990s, Alex had gained all of his coaching certificates and when Tommy McLean left in 1994, Alex was offered a player/manager contract, which he said he would only accept if young Phil O’Donnell was not sold, but for some reason, he was offloaded not so long later. He was Motherwell’s twelfth manager and in his first season he took the club to second in the league.

As a ‘Well player, he only played in two league matches, however he was registered on the bench lots, but he did not see any further action. In February 1998, he left to join rivals Hibernian when both teams were fighting for SPL survival, but it was the ‘Well who came out on top. In 2001, he was named new Rangers manager, where he won the League Cup and Scottish Cup in his first season.
