Paul McHale (born 30 September 1981 in (Stirling) is a retired Scottish Association footballer and current football agent.

Career[edit]

McHale started his career with Rangers, but failed to play a senior game for them. He was loaned out to St Mirren in 2003, and spent the 2003/04 season at Cowdenbeath.

He became Graham Roberts' first signing for Clyde in the summer of 2005. Paul was handed the captain's armband, and has proved to be an influential leader. McHale missed most of season 2005-06 with a stomach injury, including the shock Scottish Cup victory over Celtic. McHale hoped to lift Clyde's first major trophy in 48 years in November 2006, the Scottish Challenge Cup, but Clyde lost out on a penalty shoot out.

In January 2006, he joined Dundee for a fee of £5,000. He was made redundant by the club in October 2010 when they entered administration.[1] He then joined Stirling Albion until 3 January 2011, and then signed a contract extension in January which took him through to the end of the season.
