Kieran Duffie (born 4 March 1992 in Scotland) is a professional Football player currently playing as a defender for Falkirk in the Scottish Championship.

Career[edit]

Falkirk[edit]

Duffie made his Falkirk first team debut against Aberdeen in the SPL on 2 February 2010. He quickly established himself as first choice right-back and has gone on to make over 100 league appearances for Falkirk in the SPL, SFL and in the combined SPFL.

Duffie has become renowned for being an attacking full-back who likes to break forward at pace and overlap the midfield to get crosses into the box. In season 2011–12, he was a frequent supplier for striker Farid El Alagui and the 28 goals he scored, and it was mainly down to this that he was included in the PFA Scotland Team of the Year for Division One for that year.[1] He was also in the Falkirk side that won the Scottish Challenge Cup during that season as they beat Hamilton Academical 1–0 in the final.[2]

International career[edit]

Duffie has represented Scotland at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level.[3]
