Paul McGowan (born 7 October 1987 in Bellshill, Scotland) is a Scottish football player. He is a striker and currently plays for Celtic.





McGowan made his Celtic debut in the 5-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle in September 2007. He scored his first senior goal for Celtic on 7 August 2008 in a pre-season friendly against Manchester City at Celtic Park. He had the chance to score his second senior goal to win the game for Celtic but his shot hit the crossbar and the game ended 1-1. McGowan made his Champions League debut against Villareal CF on 10 December 2008, as a 75th minute substitute for Aiden McGeady. Celtic won the match 2-0 but finished bottom of their group.

On 17 December 2009, just over a year to the day of his European debut, McGowan made his Europa League debut in a 3-3 draw away to Rapid Vienna. He made an impact in the 91st minute by scoring his first competitive goal for the Hoops to complete a sensational comeback from 3-0 down to draw 3-3.[1]

Greenock Morton

McGowan was loaned out to Greenock Morton for the 2006-07 season. He played as a striker for Morton and scored a total of 16 goals in 44 competitive matches. He was the club's top scorer and received a League winners medal as Morton won the Scottish Second Division. He was chosen in the 'Team of the year' in the Second Division and 3rd place in the 'Player of the Year' award.

Morton failed to land the player in the summer transfer window when their bid - approaching a six-figure sum - was rejected.

Hamilton Academical

He was loaned out to SPL side Hamilton Academical at the beginning of the January 2009 transfer window, and started his first game with an assist for Chris Swailes in the 1-0 win over Ross County in the Scottish Cup.
