Gordon Marshall (born 19 April 1964) is a former Scottish professional football goalkeeper. He is currently goalkeeping coach at Motherwell.


Marshall began his career as a youth player at Rangers, but failed to make any first team appearances for the club. He went on to play for East Stirlingshire, East Fife and Falkirk before joining Celtic for £270,000 in 1991.

After over 7 years at Celtic Park, having made exactly 100 league appearances, he departed for Kilmarnock in 1998. Whist at Celtic Marshall spent time out on loan at St. Mirren and English club Stoke City with whom he made 13 appearances with in 1993–94.[1] After 5 years at Rugby Park, he moved to Motherwell in 2003, helping the Steelmen reach the 2005 League Cup Final. Marshall joined the coaching staff at the club before retiring as a player in 2005.

Marshall joined the Hibernian coaching staff in November 2005 and left his position in July 2009.[2][3] Marshall then worked for Alloa Athletic and St. Johnstone as a goalkeeping coach.[4] He returned to Motherwell in August 2011 as a goalkeeping coach, replacing Stewart Kerr.[4]

Marshall was capped once by Scotland, against the United States in May 1992. His father, also a goalkeeper named Gordon, was capped at under-23 level by England. His younger brother Scott played as a defender with Arsenal, Southampton and Celtic.
