Rúnar Már Sigurjónsson (full name Rúnar Már Sigurlaugarson Sigurjónsson,[1] though the matronymic 'Sigurlaugarson' is usually shortened to just "S.") (born (1990-06-18)18 June 1990) is an Icelandic footballer who plays as a midfielder for Grasshoppers. He made his debut for the Icelandic national team against Andorra in late 2012.

Club career[edit]

Rúnar started his career at hometown club Tindastóll before switching to HK when he moved to the Capital Region at 17 years of age. He played a season with HK's reserve side, Ýmir, in the lowest league before being promoted to the senior squad, managing by that time to have featured in all four divisions of Icelandic football after appearing in the 2009 1. deild karla. After two seasons with HK's senior squad, he switched to Valur before the 2010 Úrvalsdeild season.

After the 2012 season, on 31 January 2013, Rúnar signed with Dutch Eredivisie side Zwolle on loan until the end of the 2012–2013 season, with an option for two more seasons.[2][3] Shortly after arriving in the Netherlands he was injured and consequently could not play. In late April it was announced that he would be returning to Valur for the 2013 Icelandic season, although, due to his injury, he could not be sure when he would start playing.[4] Rúnar was cleared to play with Valur on 3 May 2013.[5]

On 6 August 2013, it was announced that Rúnar had moved to Swedish Superettan side GIF Sundsvall, with Rúnar signing a contract until the end of 2016.

In the summer of 2016 he was sold to Swiss Super League club Grasshopper Zürich for a sum around €350,000.[6]

International career[edit]

Rúnar played eight games for the youth sides of Iceland.[7] After a good 2012 season, during which he scored 7 goals, he was picked for the senior squad for a FIFA World Cup 2014 qualifier match against Switzerland in October 2012 but was an unused substitute.[8] A month later he started in a friendly match against Andorra, scoring the second goal of the game on his debut, a 2–0 win for Iceland.[9]

He was selected for EURO 2016.[10]
