Steven Caldwell (born 12 September 1980 in Stirling, Scotland) is a Scottish footballer. He plays as a defender for Burnley and the Scotland national team.



Caldwell began his career in England with Premier League club Newcastle United, along with his younger brother Gary. He was released by Newcastle in 2004, having previously been loaned out to Blackpool, Bradford City and Leeds United, where he scored once in the league against Blackburn Rovers.[1] At Newcastle he made 28 league appearances, and scored twice against Bradford City in the League Cup[2] and Middlesbrough in the league.[3] Once released by Newcastle, he joined local rivals Sunderland.

Caldwell is known for his whole hearted approach to the game and the solid partnership he formed with Gary Breen whilst they both played for Sunderland. On 23 April 2005, he scored Sunderland's winning goal against Leicester City to send his team back to the Premiership.

An injury-plagued season saw Caldwell fall out of favour at Sunderland and the centre half rarely featured in Roy Keane's first team when fit. He was linked with a move away from the club - with Sunderland accepting bids from Championship rivals Burnley and Coventry City. Caldwell signed for Burnley for £400,000 with just 9 minutes of the transfer window remaining. He was shortly thereafter named club captain and endeared himself to the team's fans with his uncompromising tackling and commitment.
