Marcos Agustín Gelabert (born 16 September 1981 in General Pico, La Pampa) is an Argentine footballer who plays for San Martín (SJ). His position is defensive midfielder.


He started his career at Estudiantes de La Plata in the Primera División Argentina in 2001. He went on to play over 100 games for the club before he moved to Swiss Super League side FC St. Gallen in 2006. He became, arguably, the club's best player but after their relegation into the Swiss Challenge League at the end of the 2007–08 season, he signed for FC Basel on 16 June 2008, signing a 3-year contract. He made his Basel debut on 18 July 2008, in a 2–1 win over BSC Young Boys at the Stade de Suisse, Wankdorf. He played his first European game in a Basel shirt on 13 August 2008 in a 0–0 Champions League Qualifying match draw against Vitória S.C. at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques. His first goal for FCB came on 30 August 2008, in a 2–0 win over FC Aarau at Stadion Brügglifeld. On 1 July 2010 he transferred to Neuchâtel Xamax.
