Gary Mackay (born 23 January 1964 in Edinburgh) is a former Scottish international association football player, who is now a SFA–registered agent.[1] He also managed Airdrieonians for a year.

Mackay played for Heart of Midlothian for most of his career, and he holds the record for the most competitive appearances for the club, with 640.[2] Mackay won international recognition in the late 1980s, winning four caps for Scotland. His most significant act as a Scotland player was to score the winning goal in a UEFA Euro 1988 qualifying match against Bulgaria in Sofia.[3] Although this goal did not substantially benefit Scotland, who had already been eliminated, it was of great significance to Ireland, who qualified for the finals due to Mackay's late match–winning goal.[3]

Mackay left Hearts in 1997 to play for Airdrie. After retiring as a player in 1999, Mackay then managed Airdrie for a season, but the club suffered severe financial problems[4] and he was sacked by Steve Archibald during July 2000.[5]

Mackay has since worked as an agent, representing players including Garry O'Connor,[6] Christophe Berra[7] and Lee Wallace.[8]
