Scott Peter Wilson (born 19 March 1977) is a Scottish former footballer, who played for Rangers, Portsmouth, Dunfermline Athletic and North Queensland Fury. Wilson represented Scotland at under-21 international level.

Club career[edit]

Wilson signed for Rangers in 1993 from the club's youth system. He made his debut as a 19-year-old in a UEFA Champions League defeat against Ajax at Ibrox in 1996. He made a further 77 appearances at Rangers, scoring 1 goal against Dundee United,[2] before moving to Portsmouth on loan near the end of the 2001–02 season.[3] He played five times during this loan spell, but did not do enough to earn a permanent contract and returned to Scotland.

He then signed for Dunfermline Athletic on 5 August 2002.[4] He made his Dunfermline debut in a 6–0 defeat to his former employers Rangers, just two weeks later.[5]

Wilson joined Australasian A-League team North Queensland Fury for the 2009–10 season after agreeing to a two-year contract on 6 March 2009.[6]

International career[edit]

Wilson played for the Scotland under–21 team during his time with Rangers. His performances for Dunfermline earned him selection for the Scotland B squad (then known as "Scotland Future"),[7] but he did not play.[8][9]
