Alexander "Alex" Galloway Raisbeck (26 December 1878 – 12 March 1949) was a Scottish international footballer who played for Liverpool in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, leading them to two Football League Championships.

Life and playing career

Born in Polmont, Stirlingshire, Raisbeck played for Hibernian and Stoke before being signed by Liverpool manager Tom Watson in May 1898.

While at Liverpool, he won 8 caps for Scotland and captained his country on 5 occasions.
