Alistair Espie "Ally" Maxwell (born 16 February 1965 in Hamilton) is a Scottish football coach and former professional footballer. He is currently a youth coach for SC Del Sol Soccer Club in the United States, having previously played for Motherwell, Rangers and Dundee United, and coached Greenock Morton and US side Sereno Golden Eagles.
Maxwell famously won the Scottish Cup with Motherwell, playing for most of the second half plus thirty minutes of extra time with broken ribs, a ruptured spleen and intermittent double vision sustained in a collision with Dundee United defender John Clark. Despite his injuries, Maxwell stretched to tip a fierce goal bound shot from Dundee United defender (and future Motherwell manager) Maurice Malpas over the bar with two minutes of extra time remaining, to ensure Motherwell ran out 4-3 winners.
After a playing loan spell in England with Bolton Wanderers, and one in Scotland with Clydebank, Maxwell moved to Rangers, where he picked up a Scottish League Cup winners' medal and a Scottish Cup runners-up medal, as Dundee United gained revenge for Maxwell's heroics three years previously.
He was briefly a goalkeeping coach at Hamilton Academical.
A UEFA 'A' licensed professional coach, he now resides in the United States.
