James "Jamie" Robert Langfield (born December 22, 1979) is a Scottish professional football goalkeeper who plays for Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen.





Langfield started his career as a youth player at Dundee and went on to play for Partick Thistle[1], Raith Rovers (loan) and Dunfermline Athletic[2] before moving to Aberdeen in 2005.[3]. He took over from Esson as first choice and during season 2006-2007, Aberdeen finished third and qualified for the UEFA Cup.

In May 2007, he rejected a move to Glasgow club Rangers[4], preferring the option of more first-team opportunities at Aberdeen. In June 2007, while enjoying his stag do on holiday in Magaluf, he had a drunken argument with Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood after bumping into him in a chance encounter. His Aberdeen future was in doubt.[5]

In June 2007, Langfield was linked with a move to English Championship side Norwich City with the possibility of a swap deal being involved with Norwich's Scottish international goalkeeper Paul Gallacher.

Langfield also signed a three year extension to his contract on the 21st of December 2007 which will keep him at the club until 2011. During February 2008 Langfield experienced a drop in form. This started on 5 February when Aberdeen lost to Dundee United in the CIS Insurance Cup 4-1.[6]

Langfield has regained his good form in the 2008/2009 season and was voted the Fan's Player of the Year.


Langfield has made one Scotland B appearance, and has been called up to the full Scotland squad as the third choice goalkeeper under Walter Smith, Alex McLeish and George Burley respectively, although he is yet to win a cap at full international level.[7]
