From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John O'Hare (born 24 September 1946) is a Scottish former footballer. His clubs included Sunderland, Derby County and also Nottingham Forest and was part of their European Cup victory in 1980, coming on as a substitute in the final. He also won thirteen caps for the Scotland national team, scoring five goals.

O'Hare was born in Renton. His career took shape under the guidance of Derby manager Brian Clough after moving from Sunderland for £20,000 in 1967. There was initial criticism of him as he was seen as a large but slow forward. However, Clough persisted with him and in his second season he justified his fee, going on to establish a prolific partnership with Kevin Hector as they led Derby to the First Division title in 1972.

O'Hare followed Clough to Leeds United in 1974, however the latter left Leeds after only 44 days in the job. O'Hare was reunited with Clough after a transfer to Nottingham Forest in February 1975, going on to win another league title and a European Cup.
