Paul Mathers (born 17 January 1970 in Aberdeen) is a Scottish professional footballer and coach. He is currently the goalkeeping coach at Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone, appointed in August 2015.

Career[edit]

Between 1985 and 1995, Mathers made 119 appearances for Dundee, before moving to Falkirk, where he played 76 times in three years. In 1998, he moved to Linfield, making 49 appearances until a transfer back to Dundee in 2001. In his second stint at Dundee, which lasted for only one season, Mathers did not make a league appearance and was loaned out twice. He moved on in 2002 to Peterhead, where he made 148 league appearances.

Mathers signed with St Mirren in 2007. He did not make a first team appearance for St Mirren as he was employed primarily as a goalkeeping coach, but he continued to hold a playing registration. Mathers was an unused substitute for a 2-2 SPL draw at Inverness Caledonian Thistle on 29 March 2014, aged 44.[1]

He moved to a coaching position with the Rangers academy on 6 August 2015.[2] Later in August 2015, Mathers moved to a first team coaching position at St Johnstone.[3]
