Mark Charles Casey (born 9 October 1982 in Glasgow) is a Scottish professional football player currently playing for Bellshill Athletic.

Career[edit]

Casey began his career with Celtic, appearing for the under-18 and under-21 side before joining Portsmouth in July 2001.[1] Casey failed to make a competitive first team appearance for Pompey, and moved on loan to St Patrick's Athletic in March 2004.[2]

Casey left Portsmouth in May 2005, and returned to Scotland to sign for Ayr United.[3] He spent two and a half years with Ayr, before leaving the club in January 2008 due to work commitments, and signing for junior side Glenafton Athletic.[4]

He returned to the senior game 8 months later, joining Albion Rovers. He was injured on his debut, and left the club a short time after. He spent the next year out of the game, before appearing at Clyde's open trials in July 2009, and earned himself a one-year contract.[5] He left the club after 6 months in December 2009. In January 2010 he signed for Bellshill Athletic.

Personal life[edit]

Casey is the son of former Celtic player Jim Casey.[6] In November 2008, Casey appeared in court after driving whilst being three times over the drink limit, despite already being banned from the road.[6]
