Daniel 'Danny' Galbraith was born in Galashiels in 1990 and began his career within the youth ranks of Hearts before moving to Manchester United in 2006. In his first season at the club, Danny was part of the side that reached the FA Youth Cup final playing a key role on the left side. He featured for the reserves at the end of his first season but his progress was stalled by a series of injuries and he never made an appearance for the Manchester United first team.

Danny signed for Hibernian in 2009 on a two-year deal after being given a free transfer by United and he made his debut for Hibs in a 2-1 victory over St Mirren, coming on as a substitute for Paul Hanlon. He scored his first goal in senior football and only goal for Hibs in January 2010, firing a low shot past Artur Boruc late on at Celtic Park to give Hibernian a 2–1 league win against Celtic, describing the goal as a "moment to remember".

Danny went onto play for Gillingham, York City and Edinburgh City before joining his home town club Gala Fairydean Rovers in 2019.
