Darren McCormack (born 29 September 1988) is a Scottish professional association football player who plays for Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League. McCormack, a defender, has also represented Scotland at under–21 international level. He has attracted media attention for his personal life, particularly being convicted of an assault on Calum Elliot.



Celtic made an approach to sign McCormack in 2007, but he signed a five year deal to stay with Hibs.[2] He made his league debut for Hibs in a 4–1 win over Kilmarnock in September 2007.[2] McCormack made his first first-team appearance for Hibs in over a year in a 2–0 win against St. Mirren during January 2009, replacing the suspended David van Zanten at right back. His appearances have again been limited during the 2009–10 season, making only six first team appearances as of February 2010.[3] He was sent off during the last of those appearances, an Edinburgh derby match.[3]

McCormack was selected for the Scotland under–21 squad for the match against Norway in May 2008.[4] He was also selected for the match against Lithuania in August 2008, but did not play.[5]

Personal life

McCormack was arrested for an assault on Hearts striker Calum Elliot on 22 March 2009, near an Edinburgh nightclub.[6] When the case came to Edinburgh Sheriff Court, McCormack pleaded guilty to an assault charge, and was fined £1000.[7] The court was told that McCormack had punched Elliot in the face after Elliot had "made a deliberately antagonising remark to him about their respective football careers".[7] McCormack, who sent an apology to Elliot via his agent, was also fined £1200 (two weeks' wages) by his club.[7]

During February 2010, McCormack was arrested by police on Leith Walk and charged with the offences of driving without insurance and driving without a licence.[3] He was subsequently banned from driving for 12 months and fined £500.[8]
