Stéphane Guivarc'h (born 6 September 1970 in Concarneau, Finistère) is a French former football striker remembered principally for fleeting forays into international and top flight football.

Off the back of an exceptional domestic goalscoring record Guivarc'h was selected as the lone striker in the World Cup winning France team of 1998, starting five games and failing to contribute a single goal.

In the space of two months Guivarc'h was signed for Newcastle United by their manager Kenny Dalglish in the 1998 close season, played four games and scored on his debut against Liverpool,[1] then was sold to Rangers by an incumbent Ruud Gullit. [2]

He was made Chevalier (Knight) of the Légion d'honneur in 1998.[3][4]

In October 2009, Guivarc'h appeared at No1 in a list, compiled by the Daily Mail, of the top 50 worst strikers ever to play in the Premier League. He responded by saying "It is truly a crap newspaper", a comment the newspaper reported. [5]
