Mike Galloway (born 30 May 1965) is a football player and coach. Galloway played for Berwick Rangers, Mansfield Town, Halifax Town, Heart of Midlothian, Celtic and Leicester City as a midfielder. Born in Oswestry, England, Galloway represented Scotland once in an international match.

Playing career

Galloway was a player with an aggressive attitude to the game but with a skilful left foot. A hard-tackling and aggressive ball winner, the red-haired Galloway started his career with Berwick Rangers. After spells at Mansfield Town and Halifax Town, he moved to Heart of Midlothian (Hearts) in the autumn of 1987. Galloway's combative performances for Hearts were a key reason why the Edinburgh side were able to push Celtic all the way during the 1987/88 season.

Celtic manager Billy McNeill signed Galloway in 1989. He made his competitive debut in a 3-1 win at old club Hearts on 12 August. He would be a regular feature in that first year with the club. Despite a weight problem and some inconsistent performances which saw him in and out of the team, he earned a Scotland cap in October 1991.[2] On his game he was an excellent midfield enforcer but at other times his slackness could be costly and as managers came and went at Parkhead a lack of discipline off the field saw Galloway lambasted by boss Lou Macari over missed training sessions. From that time on he was seldom more than a bit-part player at Celtic Park and he eventually departed in 1995 for Leicester City. Serious injuries sustained in a car crash would end his football career.

Coaching career

On 27 April 2011 he was appointed manager at East Of Scotland League Club Coldstream FC for season 2011/12.[3] On 15 June 2011 he was appointed manager at Northern Alliance League Club Berwick United for season 2011/12.[4] On 22 September 2013 he was appointed manager of East of Scotland League side Eyemouth United.[5]
