BiogThe son of Gordon Marshall Snr and brother of Gordon, former Arsenal player Scott Marshall was a loan signing from Southampton during season 1998-1999.
A centre half, Marshall showed early promise at Arsenal and was a Scotland Under 21 international tipped for a very bright future. However he never came close to fulfilling that early potential and he eventually departed Highbury on a free transfer in the summer of 1998 for Southampton.
His career at the Saints was a nightmare and Marshall began to look a very limited defender who was out of his depth at the highest level. His loan move to Celtic in March 1999 was greeted with a collective groan from the Celtic support who saw Marshall as a player simply not good enough for the Hoops.
So it proved. Marshall's only start for the Bhoys was in the disastrous 3-0 defeat to Rangers at Parkhead on May 2nd which saw the Ibrox club claim the league championship. Celtic's lengthy injury list saw Marshall form a makeshift back three with Enrico Annoni and a half-fit Alan Stubbs, in front of backup keeper Kerr, as referee Hugh Dallas wrote his name into the annals of Rangers lore.
He was subsequently released by Southampton and joined Brentford in October 1999 for a fee of £250,000. He was injury prone at Brentford and he missed most of the 01/02 season. After battling his way back to fitness, he at last gained regular first team football making a total of 94 appearances for the Bees, scoring 7 goals.
In November 2003, he joined Wycombe Wanderers.
On 27 August 2004 he announced his retirement from the professional game. After retiring, he took up a youth coach role at Brentford in 2007.
Despite the unsuccessful spell and very brief time at Celtic, we hope him the best. There are few more families who have had as many to have played in the professional ranks as the Marshalls.
