Scott Wilson (born 19 March 1977) is a former Scottish footballer.

Club career[edit]

Wilson signed for Rangers in 1993 from the club's youth system. He made his debut as a 19 year old in a UEFA Champions League defeat against Ajax at Ibrox in 1996. He made a further 77 appearances at Rangers, scoring 1 goal against Dundee United,[1] before moving to Portsmouth on loan near the end of the 2001–02 season.[2] He played five times during this loan spell, but did not do enough to earn a permanent contract and returned to Scotland.

He then signed for Dunfermline Athletic on 5 August 2002.[3] He made his Dunfermline debut in a 6–0 defeat to his former employers Rangers, just two weeks later.[4]

Wilson joined Australasian A-League team North Queensland Fury for the 2009–10 season after agreeing to a two-year contract on 6 March 2009.[5]

International career[edit]

Wilson has stood out as a consistent performer for Dunfermline and has been involved with the Scotland Future squad on several occasions, adding to the five Scotland under–21 caps gained during his spell at Ibrox Stadium.
