Scott Booth (born 16 December 1971 in Aberdeen) is a former Scottishfootball player. He began his career at Aberdeen as a teenager in 1990, before moving to Germany in 1997 to play for Borussia Dortmund. After a spell in the Netherlands, he returned to Aberdeen in 2003 before retiring a year later. He is currently the manager of Stenhousemuir.
Booth started his career at his home town club of Aberdeen where he played up front for about nine years. Seen as a favourite by the Aberdeen fans, Booth was part of the Aberdeen side that came so close to winning the League title on the final day of the Scottish Premier League 1990–91 season. He played in every game of Aberdeen's 1995 Scottish League Cup campaign until an injury ruled him out of the final, in which Aberdeen beat Dundee 2–0. Less than two years later he left Pittodrie for a surprise move to Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
The success of fellow Scot Paul Lambert was perhaps one of the reasons behind the move. Nevertheless, he never really got a look-in with the then-European champions, even though he got a brief taste of Champions League football. He is also notable for being the first Scot to win the Intercontinental Cup.
Booth moved on loan to Dutch club FC Utrecht in 1998, to secure his place in the Scotland squad for the 1998 FIFA World Cup. A year later he moved to Vitesse on loan, after which he left Borussia Dortmund permanently. Booth then signed for FC Twente in the Netherlands. He was to become a favourite in the Netherlands, playing there for the next four years and picking up a winner's medal when Twente won the 2001 KNVB Cup after a penalty shoot-out (in which he scored).
Booth rejoined Aberdeen in the summer of 2003. He was Aberdeen's top scorer in the 2003–04 season, but was hit by injury. He retired from football aged 32 at the end of his contract in 2004.
After retiring from football, Scott Booth began a career in broadcasting. He worked as a match co-commentator and pundit for Setanta Sports until its UK broadcasting operation went into administration. He has also worked for STV, BBC Radio Scotland and ESPN. Booth scaled back these commitments when he was appointed as a national youth team coach by the Scottish Football Association.
