Garðar Bergmann Gunnlaugsson (born 7 September 1983) is an Icelandic footballer who currently plays for ÍA Akranes. He is the younger brother of Arnar Gunnlaugsson and Bjarki Gunnlaugsson.

Club career[edit]

Garðar was born in Akranes in western Iceland in 1983. He started his football career playing for his local team ÍA Akranes before moving to Valur in 2004. In 2007, he signed with Swedish club IFK Norrköping before moving, in August 2008, to Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia. He signed a three-year contract at Sofia, becoming the first Icelandic footballer to play in the Bulgarian A PFG when he made his debut in a match against PFC Pirin Blagoevgrad.

On 18 January 2010, Garðar officially terminated his contract with CSKA Sofia before signing for Austrian side LASK Linz in February 2010, making his debut for LASK in April due to groin injuries. In July 2010 Garðar signed a 2-year contract with German side SpVgg Unterhaching, but left the club after one year, returning to ÍA Akranes where he had begun his career.

International career[edit]

Garðar has played for Iceland U-19 and U-21 but did not make his debut for the senior team until 13 January 2016 in a friendly against Finland.

Personal life[edit]

He was married to model Ásdís Rán Gunnarsdóttir with whom he has a daughter and a son.[1] They divorced in 2012.
