Keith Wright Profile

 

National team Scotland
International debut

 

Edinburgh born centre forward Keith Wright first came to prominence with Raith Rovers in the mid eighties. He moved to Dundee in 1986 to form part of a prolific goal scoring partnership with Tommy Coyne in 1986.

Transferred to boyhood heroes Hibs in the summer of 1991, he became an immediate fans favourite when scoring in every round of the League Cup as Hibs lifted the trophy when defeating Dunfermline 2-0 at Hampden a few months later.

Called into the Scotland set up in 1992, Keith Wright won his first and only full cap in Scotland's 1-0 victory over Northern Ireland at Hampden in February of that year.

After six seasons at Easter Road as a first team regular under manager Alex Miller, Wright rejoined Raith Rovers in 1997, scoring 12 times from 25 appearances the second time around before moving on to Morton.
