Marc Ian Twaddle (born 27 August 1986 in Glasgow) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for League One side Rochdale.


Twaddle, a defender, was previously a youth player at Rangers but failed to make any first team appearances and joined Falkirk in August 2003. The highlight of his Falkirk career was scoring the winner against Rangers – Falkirk's first league win against Rangers in over three decades.

He left Falkirk in the summer of 2007 in search of first team football and joined Partick Thistle. He was much appreciated by the Thistle support due to his exceptionally high work rate, good pace and cultured left foot. He usually plays as a left back, although he has been deployed either as a wing back in a five man defence or as a left midfielder. He rejoined Falkirk in July 2009 under former youth team coach Eddie May (Scottish footballer). Twaddle, nicknamed "The Twadfather', wears the number 4 shirt for Falkirk.

He is, like James McFadden and Gerry Britton a former pupil of Turnbull High School. Also in his year at school was Vincent Black Lightning, former drummer of the noted Glasgow band San Sebastian. Black Lightning, a well known Thistle supporter and fan of Twaddle's, will often refer to occasions when he played Twaddle at football in interviews.
