Dylan McGeouch (born 15 January 1993) is a Scottish footballer, who plays as a midfielder for Hibernian. McGeouch has also previously played for Celtic and Coventry City. He represented Scotland at the under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.

Early life[edit]

McGeouch grew up in the Milton area of Glasgow, supporting Celtic.[2][3]

Club career[edit]

Celtic youth[edit]

McGeouch started his career with the Celtic youth system and was often a ball boy for first team matches during his time there.[4] He left Celtic in 2008 after his brother, Darren, who was also with Celtic, fell out of favour with the club.

Rangers youth[edit]

McGeouch went to Rangers in 2008, but he returned to Celtic in 2011 after Neil Lennon visited his house and asked him to come back.[5] Rangers manager Walter Smith had appealed to McGeouch to stay at Rangers.[2] Rangers were later awarded £100,000 by a transfer tribunal regarding the McGeouch transfer.[6]

Celtic[edit]

McGeouch made his Celtic debut on 6 November 2011, when he came on as a late substitute in a 2–1 win over Motherwell.[7] On 26 November, he made his second appearance for Celtic, coming on as a 64th-minute substitute against St Mirren. Eight minutes later he scored his first goal for the club after collecting the ball deep inside his own half and ran 70 yards, dribbling past several St Mirren players, before striking a low left foot shot into the back of the net to seal a 5–0 victory.[5][8]

Coventry City (loan)[edit]

On 30 January 2014, McGeouch was loaned to Coventry City for the remainder of the 2013–14 season.[9] He returned to Celtic in the summer of 2014.

Hibernian[edit]

After making one appearance for Celtic in August 2014, he was loaned to Hibernian until the end of the season.[10] He made his first appearance against Cowdenbeath on 13 September. He received a red card in the League Cup fixture against Ross County for a heavy tackle on Joe Cardle. He scored his first goal for Hibernian in a 4–0 victory over Livingston at Almondvale Stadium.

On 21 August 2015, McGeouch signed permanently for Hibernian on a three-year deal.[11] He suffered a series of injury problems during the 2015–16 season and was restricted to 19 league appearances. McGeouch came back into the team for the promotion playoffs, in which Hibs lost 5–4 on aggregate to Falkirk. He then played the full game as Hibs defeated Rangers in the 2016 Scottish Cup Final, their first victory in the competition for 114 years.[12]

International career[edit]

McGeouch was called up to the Scotland under-21 squad on 17 April 2012, to face Italy eight days later.[13]
