Fast Facts You Need To Know


On 13 November 2019, it was announced that McFadden was to be inducted into the Motherwell F.C. Hall of Fame.

Alex McLeish appointed McFadden to an assistant coaching position with the Scotland national team in March 2018. Manager Alex McLeish and his backroom staff, including McFadden, was fired on 18 April 2019.


On 8 September 2017, McFadden signed for Dumfries club Queen of the South on a short-term contract. McFadden departed Queens in January 2018, after 15 appearances for the club.


Nearly seventeen years after making his Motherwell debut and nearly sixteen after scoring his first league goal, McFadden came on as a second-half substitute in Motherwell’s final game of the 2016-17 season versus Inverness Caledonian Thistle and scored in the 73rd minute, as the match ended in a 3-2 win for the Scottish Highlands club. McFadden departed Motherwell at the end of the season, as their manager Stephen Robinson opted for a new coaching set-up.


As of September 2015, McFadden was training with Motherwell. Two months later, he entered negotiations to be the marquee player of Indian Super League club Kerala Blasters, after the departure of Carlos Marchena.

On 18 December 2015, McFadden signed a short-term deal until the end of January 2016. That arrangement expired at the end of January, with McFadden expecting to move on to the USA. On 13 February, McFadden signed a new deal to stay to the end of the season. On 19 March, he was ruled out for the remainder of the 2015–16 season, after suffering a broken ankle in training. On 26 July 2016, Motherwell announced that McFadden had been appointed as the club’s assistant-manager, whilst also continuing as a player until the summer of 2017.


On 1 October 2014, McFadden signed for St Johnstone until the end of the 2014–15 season and had his debut on 4 October 2014 in a 2–1 defeat versus St Mirren. On 22 November 2014, McFadden scored his first goal for the Perth club in a 2–1 win versus Ross County. In May 2015, McFadden was released after only scoring one league goal during his season in Perthshire.


McFadden received some criticism for his lack of discipline, picking up fifteen yellow cards and one red during the campaign. McFadden’s final game for Motherwell that season saw him score a hat-trick in a 6–2 defeat of Livingston at Fir Park.

After failing to earn a new deal at Sunderland, McFadden again trained with former club Motherwell. On 18 February 2013, McFadden returned to Fir Park, signing on until the end of the season. McFadden made his first start on his return in a 2–1 win over Celtic. On Friday 15 March 2013, McFadden scored his first goal since returning in a 4–1 victory over Hibernian and also set up two goals during the match. McFadden’s performance earned him the man-of-the-match award. McFadden then scored the late equaliser in a 2–2 draw versus St Mirren on 6 April 2013 and then on 5 May 2013, scored a brace despite losing 4–3 versus Inverness Caledonian Thistle. At the end of the 2012-13 season, although McFadden was offered a new contract his future still remained uncertain.

At the start of pre-season training for the 2013–14 season, McFadden returned to the club and travelled with them to their training camp in Spain. In a 4–2 defeat versus Newcastle United in a friendly match, McFadden scored a penalty with an audacious chip down the centre of the goal, known as a Panenka. After the match, reports suggested that McFadden would remain at Motherwell on a one-year deal. On 19 July 2013, it was confirmed that McFadden had signed a new contract that he described as a straightforward decision to arrive at.

At the start of the 2013-14 season, McFadden started as a traditional right winger but soon afterwards his form and fitness slumped, having scored only once versus Livingston in the last sixteen of the Scottish League Cup. McFadden then suffered a back injury but returned soon after to score his first league goal of the season in a 5–1 win over Partick Thistle on 29 December 2013 and followed this up his second league goal in the next match, in a 4–0 victory over St Johnstone. After these two games, McFadden says his performance revived his form and he went on to score and provide three assists, on 1 March 2014 as Motherwell defeated Hearts. McFadden’s fourth goal arrived on 22 March 2014 in a 2–1 victory over Ross County.

At the end of the 2013–14 season, McFadden was released by the club after they decided not to extend his contract after citing a risk over McFadden’s recurring injury problems, even though he had expressed his desire to sign a new contract two months previously.


McFadden trained with Motherwell during the 2012–13 pre-season and played for Motherwell in a testimonial match for Steven Hammell on 21 July 2012, with Everton providing the opposition. Soon afterwards there was some transfer speculation, when Well manager Stuart McCall made an approach to sign McFadden after spending a few weeks training with the club. However, the approach to sign McFadden was unsuccessful as no agreement could be met.

In September 2012, McFadden undertook a trial with Sunderland. On 26 October, he joined Sunderland on a three-month contract that ended in January 2013. McFadden’s debut was on 15 December 2012, in a 3–1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. and his home debut was on 12 January 2013 in a 3–0 victory versus West Ham United.

McFadden was substituted at half-time in a UEFA Euro 2012 qualification match against Liechtenstein in September 2010, and was criticised by manager Craig Levein after the game. McFadden suffered a serious injury soon afterwards. He criticised Levein in February 2012 for describing him as “lazy”. In March 2013 new Scotland manager Gordon Strachan said that he would consider McFadden for selection, but noted that he needed to play regularly at club level, having not done so in the previous two seasons.


McFadden suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage in August 2010. He returned to training in March, but suffered a setback which meant he could not play in the 2010–11 season. Following their relegation from the Premier League, Birmingham chose not to take up a two-year option on his contract but attempted to negotiate amended terms. No agreement was reached, and McFadden left Birmingham after his contract expired on 30 June 2011.

After continuing to train with Birmingham over the summer to regain fitness, McFadden had a successful trial with Wolverhampton Wanderers in September, but he did not agree terms. In mid-October he was reported to be in talks with Celtic, but on 17 October, McFadden signed for Everton on a contract until the end of the 2011–12 season. McFadden played in a reserve team match the following day, which was his first appearance since he injured his knee 13 months earlier and made his second debut for the first team on 5 November as an 81st-minute substitute in a 2–1 defeat away to Newcastle United. McFadden had to wait until April 2012 to make his first start on his return to the club as he played the first 64 minutes in a 4–0 league win over Sunderland. and was then released by the club at the end of the season, having played in a total of eight first-team matches during his short return to Goodison Park.


McFadden scored Birmingham’s first goal of the 2009–10 Premier League season, a 92nd-minute penalty, to give the club a 1–0 home win against Portsmouth.


In October 2007, McFadden scored a critical equalising goal in Everton’s victory over Metalist Kharkiv in the UEFA Cup. McFadden celebrated his goal versus Middlesbrough on 2 January 2008, by pointing to his black armband and then to the sky, in tribute to former Motherwell captain Phil O’Donnell, who had recently died.

On 18 January 2008, McFadden joined Birmingham City on a three-and-a-half-year deal, with an option for additional two years, for an initial fee of £5 million, potentially rising to £6m depending on appearances. McFadden’s first goal arrived in his fourth game for the club, a penalty kick versus West Ham United at Upton Park, after he had been fouled by Lucas Neill. In his next match, at home to Arsenal, he scored from a 20-yard free kick before adding the equalising goal from the penalty spot in the last minute of stoppage time.


McFadden was first capped by Scotland in 2002. His goal in a Euro 2008 qualification match on 12 September 2007 against France in the Parc des Princes, which gave Scotland a 1–0 win, is regarded as one of the team’s most famous goals. McFadden played 48 times for Scotland, scoring 15 goals, in total. He was appointed to an assistant coach position with the Scotland national team in March 2018.

McFadden made an indifferent start to the 2006–07 season, following the arrival of record signing Andrew Johnson, managing only two goals in the first half of the campaign. On 24 January 2007, McFadden injured his fifth metatarsal during training for Everton. After nearly three months on the sidelines, he made a scoring return to action for Everton as a second-half substitute versus Charlton Athletic on 15 April 2007. McFadden scored a spectacular volley in injury time to secure a 2–1 win for the Toffees, a goal later voted goal of the season by the readers of Sky Sports.


During the 2005–06 season, McFadden was in and out of the Everton team as they struggled to re-capture their form of the previous season. On 11 March 2006, he scored with a 35-yard volley to help Everton to a 3–1 victory over Fulham. This scoring run of form continued the next week versus Aston Villa, a half-volley from just outside the area helping the Toffees to a 4–1 victory and ended the season with seven goals.


English Premier League club Everton signed McFadden in 2003 for £1.25 million. McFadden scored his debut goal for Everton during their 5–2 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on 1 January 2005, more than a year after joining the club. One week later, he scored his second goal in a third-round FA Cup tie versus Plymouth Argyle.


McFadden gained his first Scotland cap at the age of 19, on a Far East tour against South Africa, at the end of which a night out drinking caused him to miss his flight home. Despite his domestic performances he became a regular in Berti Vogts’ Scotland set-up, scoring his first goal against the Faroe Islands during a 3–1 win in a UEFA Euro 2004 qualifying match at Hampden Park on 6 September 2003.

McFadden is also remembered for his goal versus Netherlands in November 2003 that gave Scotland a famous 1–0 victory. However, in September 2007, McFadden scored an even more significant goal in a 1–0 win over France in Paris during Scotland’s dramatic but ultimately narrowly unsuccessful qualifying campaign for UEFA Euro 2008, and was on target again in the following game, a 3–1 win over Ukraine at Hampden Park in October. He was unable to score in the last match of the campaign against Italy in November 2007 at Hampden, which Scotland lost 2–1. The winning goal in the September 2008 match against Iceland in the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign, scored on the rebound after McFadden’s penalty kick was saved, was initially credited to McFadden, but in the official match report was awarded to Barry Robson. The SFA lobbied on McFadden’s behalf, and in March 2009, FIFA re-credited the goal to him.


McFadden started his playing career with Motherwell, where he came to prominence in the 2002–03 season by scoring 19 goals and winning the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year award. Everton signed McFadden for £1.25 million in 2003. McFadden struggled to hold down a regular place in the Everton first-team and moved to Birmingham City for £5 million in January 2008. A serious injury meant that McFadden missed most of the 2010-11 season and the Blues, who were relegated in his absence, decided not to renew his contract. McFadden signed again for the Toffees on a free transfer in October 2011, after regaining his fitness, and spent three months with Sunderland in 2012.

McFadden was born and raised in Springburn, Glasgow. McFadden attended Turnbull High School in Bishopbriggs and joined the Motherwell youth system at a young age, making his first-team debut when he was 17 years old. McFadden came to greater prominence during the 2002–03 Scottish Premier League SPL season, scoring 19 goals from 34 starts and winning the Young Player of the Year Award.
