Hamed Namouchi (Arabic: حامد النموشي‎, born 14 February 1984) is a French-born Tunisian former professional footballer who played as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Cannes, France, Namouchi started his career with local club AS Cannes.

He signed for Rangers in September 2003 on a free transfer. He made his Rangers debut on 10 January 2004 against Hibernian as a substitute.[1] On 1 January 2005, he scored a late winner to salvage a 1–1 draw away to Dundee United.[2] At Rangers he picked up a Scottish Premier League winners' medal in 2005, and appeared in every game in their UEFA Champions League campaign where he was earmarked by Luis Figo as the player that "impressed him most".[3]

Namouchi joined Lorient for a fee of £500,000 in August 2006 after being told by Rangers manager Paul Le Guen that he was surplus to requirements.[4]

In late 2009, Namouchi agreed to a contract with the Turkish Süper Lig side Sivasspor after lengthy contract negotiations.[5]

On 15 November 2009, he was invited to a trial at SC Freiburg.[6] The following month, he signed with SC Freiburg for the remainder of the season.

In October 2010, he signed with French second-tier side Grenoble on a two-year deal.

In January 2012, he moved to Tunisia, signing a three and a half year contract with Étoile Sportive du Sahel.[7]

In June 2014 he moved to Bulgarian Club Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria Premier League

International career[edit]

He is a Tunisian international, despite being born in France. He won his 14th international cap against Belarus in May 2006, scoring his first international goal in the same game. He was also a member of Tunisia's qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and featured in all of their three games at the tournament.
