Biography

Vastly experienced goalkeeper David Marshall joined Derby County in the summer of 2020 on a two-year contract from Wigan Athletic.

The Glasgow-born shot-stopper is approaching 50 caps for Scotland at international level and was their first-choice goalkeeper upon joining the Rams, and subsequently since.

The experienced custodian brought a wealth of experience with him to Pride Park Stadium, having recorded in excess of 500 appearances in club football.

During the 2019/20 season he played 40 times in all competitions and kept 15 clean sheets from 39 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship for Wigan, which included a run of ten shut outs from 11 matches in the second half of the campaign.

The goalkeeper made 33 appearances for the Rams in all competitions in his first season with the club and kept nine clean sheets in total.

He also had a huge part to play on the international stage too as his heroics earned Scotland their first appearance at a major competition since 1998. The goalkeeper was a penalty hero twice in the Nations League Semi-Final and Final, against Israel and Serbia, to secure their qualification.

At the UEFA European Championships in the summer, Marshall started all three games for Scotland and kept a clean sheet at Wembley against England, however, they exited the competition at the group stage.

Marshall began his professional career in his homeland with Celtic and made his first-team debut in the 2002/03 season as a late substitute in a Scottish Cup tie against St Johnstone.

His breakthrough season came during the 2003/04 campaign as he made 18 appearances in all competitions, including a stunning Man of the Match display in a 0-0 draw at the Nou Camp against Barcelona – who had a certain Phillip Cocu in their midfield - in the UEFA Cup as the Hoops recorded a 1-0 aggregate victory against the Spanish giants.

Marshall’s time at Celtic saw him make 50 first-team appearances and claim four major honours, the Scottish Premier League in 2003/04, the Scottish Cup in 2003/04 and 2004/05 and the Scottish League Cup in 2005/06.

The 2006/07 season saw Marshall get his first taste of English football during a loan spell at Norwich City, before the move was made permanent in the summer of 2007.

After two seasons at Carrow Road, he moved to Cardiff City and went on to spend seven full seasons on the books with the Bluebirds.

During that time he made 281 appearances for the Welsh outfit and was a key member of their title-winning Championship side during the 2012/13 campaign, meaning he was able to play Premier League football for the first time in 2013/14.

Marshall’s next stop was Hull City in the summer of 2016 and he played 67 times for the Tigers across three seasons, including one campaign in the Premier League, prior to joining Wigan Athletic last summer and was a near ever-present in Paul Cook’s side.

On the international stage, Marshall has been capped 44 times by Scotland and he made his international bow in 2004 against Hungary. After a spell out of the international picture, he returned to the fold under Steve Clarke following his appointment in 2019.
