Paul Hamilton Wright (born 17 August 1967 in East Kilbride) is a retired Scottish football player. He played for seven clubs in a fourteen-year career, beginning with Aberdeen in 1983. It was in the mid-to-late '90s, however, that he was at the peak of his career, firstly with St Johnstone and then Kilmarnock. He was transferred from Hibernian to St Johnstone for £275,000; and from St Johnstone to Kilmarnock for £340,000, becoming both club's record buys.
Wright scored the winning goal for Kilmarnock in the 1997 Scottish Cup Final against Falkirk. Wright brought his professional playing career to a close in 2002 with Greenock Morton and moved into junior football with Larkhall Thistle.
Wright moved into coaching after retirement and currently works as Under-20s manager at Scottish Lowland Football League club BSC Glasgow.
