Gary Mcallister


Gary Mcallister, Scottish football speaker


Former Scottish footballer turned football speaker Gary McAllister MBE enjoyed a successful career which saw him play over 700 games and score over 120 goals for 5 different British domestic teams.

Starting his career at local club Motherwell FC, McAllister grew into a phenomenal player for both club and country. Representing Scotland on 57 occasions, McAllister spent 4 of his 9 year Scotland career as team captain showing his leadership qualities which would set him in good stead for his management career which blossomed after his playing days had passed. Turning his hand to becoming an after dinner speaker, specialising as a football speaker, McAllister spent several years managing at Coventry City, Leeds United and Aston Villa until leaving his post at Villa Park in 2011.

Enjoying the majority of his success during his tenure with Liverpool, McAllister won the FA cup, League Cup, Charity Shield, Europa League and UEFA Cup with the Reds during his 2 season stint at Anfield, something which he takes great pride in elaborating on during his after dinner speaker appearances as a sports speaker. Prior to his success at Liverpool, McAllister had been an integral part of a Leeds United team who struck fear into the opposition during the early 90s; combining with the likes of David Batty, Gordon Strachan, Gary Speed and Eric Cantona, McAllister and the Leeds boys claimed the 1991-92 title. Having experienced the ecstasy of winning multiple titles and representing his country on a number of occasions, McAllister has equally experienced tragedy after the death of his wife Denise with terminal cancer.

Now a patron for a multitude of cancer charities, McAllister regularly holds fundraisers in conjunction with many other football stars in an attempt to raise desperately required funds to help aid research. Passionate as a sport speaker and not afraid to discuss his personal and professional career and experiences, Gary McAllister is able to exert his stories in a touching and compelling fashion as an after dinner speaker. A caring gentleman and sports speaker with a real passion for what he believes in, the addition of Gary McAllister to your event as a football speaker is one that’ll captivate the audience and help them to understand the story of a true football stalwart.

Scottish football hero Gary McAllister is available as an after dinner speaker and as a football speaker.
