Dylan McGeouch (born 15 January 1993) is a Scottish footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Hibernian, on loan from Celtic. McGeouch has also previously played for Coventry City and the Scotland under-21 team.

Early life[edit]

McGeouch grew up in the Milton area of Glasgow, supporting Celtic.[2][3]

Club career[edit]

McGeouch started his career with Celtic and was often a ball boy during his time there.[4] However, he left in 2008 after his brother, Darren, who was also in Celtic's youth system, fell out of favour with the club. Dylan then went to Rangers, but he returned to Celtic in 2011 after Neil Lennon visited his house and asked him to come back.[5] Rangers manager Walter Smith had appealed to McGeouch to stay at Rangers.[2] McGeouch made his Celtic debut on 6 November 2011, when he came on as a late substitute in a 2–1 win over Motherwell.[6] On 26 November, he made his second appearance for Celtic, coming on as a 64th minute substitute against St Mirren. Eight minutes later he scored his first goal for the club after collecting the ball deep inside his own half and ran 70 yards, dribbling past several St. Mirren players, before striking a low left foot shot into the back of the net to seal a 5–0 victory.[5][7]

On 30 January 2014, McGeouch was loaned to Coventry City for the remainder of the 2013–14 season.[8] He returned to Celtic in the summer of 2014.

Hibernian[edit]

After making one appearance for Celtic in August 2014, he was loaned to Hibernian until the end of the season.[9] He made his first appearence against Cowdenbeath on 13 September. He received a red card in the League Cup fixture against Ross County for a heavy tackle on Joe Cardle. He scored his first goal for Hibernian in a 4-0 victory over Livingston at Almondvale Stadium.

International career[edit]

McGeouch was called up to the Scotland under-21 squad on 17 April 2012, to face Italy eight days later.[10]
