Miodrag Krivokapić (Cyrillic: Mиoдpaг Kpивoкaпић, born 6 September 1959 in Nikšić, Montenegro, FPR Yugoslavia) is a Montenegrin former footballer who played in defence. He played for Red Star Belgrade and represented Yugoslavia before moving to Scotland in 1988, where he went on to play for a number of clubs, including Dundee United and Motherwell.


Krivokapić joined Dundee United in 1989 from Red Star, where he had previously won four international caps. He stayed with United until 1993, picking up a Scottish Cup runners-up medal in 1991, before spending three years at Motherwell. Krivokapic had spells with Raith Rovers and Hamilton Academical before retiring. He was also reserve team coach at Hamilton winning the Scottish Reserve League in 1997-98. He had a four-game spell as caretaker manager of Motherwell in 2001 but was released from the coaching staff when new manager Eric Black was appointed.[1]

In June 2008, Krivokapić returned to Scotland when he was appointed by Celtic to work on youth development.[2]
