Christopher Drummond "Chris" Hay (born 28 August 1974) is a Scottish former professional footballer. He played as a striker for Celtic, Swindon Town, Huddersfield Town, St Johnstone and Stirling Albion.

Hay began his professional career at Celtic in 1993, but only managed to make 26 league appearances in four years. He joined English club Swindon Town in 1997, and in just under a century of league appearances he scored 32 goals. In 2000, Hay moved to Huddersfield Town and spent two less successful seasons at the McAlpine Stadium.

Hay returned to Scotland in 2002 with Billy Stark's St Johnstone. He was Saints' top scorer in his first season, notching nine league goals. He went on to make 70 league appearances for the Perth club before joining Stirling Albion in 2005. He scored a hat-trick against Forfar Athletic on 3 December 2005.[2]

Hay currently lives in Mid Sussex and works in Brighton as an insurance broker.

  3. ^ After Hay's release by Stirling, Soccerbase linked to his namesake Paul Hay on its match result pages. This makes it looks as though Chris was still at the club in 2006–07 and 2007–08. It also explains why Paul Hay's Soccerbase page has no results for either season.
