Ľubomír "Lubo" Moravčík (born June 22, 1965 in Nitra) is a former footballer from Slovakia, who played internationally for Czechoslovakia (42 caps, seven goals) and Slovakia (37 caps, six goals). He was a member of the Czechoslovakian team at Italia 90, where he was sent off against Germany in the quarter-final in Milan.

He was a creative midfield player, reminiscent of the old-fashioned Inside forward. Renowned for his technical ability, Moravčík was capable of unleashing powerful, accurate shots, and pinpoint crosses with both feet.

The 1990s saw him moving to Western Europe to play for Saint-Étienne, Bastia and MSV Duisburg before moving to Scottish side Celtic in November 1998. Signed by fellow Slovakian Dr Jozef Vengloš for a fee of just £300,000, he became a hero in the eyes of the Parkhead faithful, forming an outstanding partnership with Henrik Larsson.

Moravčík's first two goals for Celtic came against their arch-rivals Rangers on November 21, 1998, in what turned out to be a memorable 5–1 victory in the midst of a very poor season. He stayed at Celtic Park for a total of four seasons, winning two SPL championships, one Scottish Cup and two CIS Insurance Cups. He played his last competitive game in Scotland for Lochee United in a friendly game versus a Lubo Moravcik select, which Lochee lost on penalties.


Moravčík is his country's most capped player, with a total of 79 appearances for Czechoslovakia and Slovakia. He started a career of coach as a manager of Slovak national U-17 team. Popular 'Lubo' is currently coaching FC ViOn Zlaté Moravce, the team from highest Slovak league - Corgoň Liga.
