  • Player profile

    A Glasgow-born forward who was brought up in Blackburn, Gallagher never really settled in the first team squad at Rovers after coming through their youth system. He had loan spells at Stoke City, Preston and Plymouth and seemingly had his heart set on a permanent move with the latter before Rovers told him he could yet have a future at Ewood Park. But a failure to impress boss Sam Allardyce saw him move to City in August 2009, on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

    He scored his first goals in a City shirt two months later when he came on as a second half substitute to net both goals in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. He kept his place in the side but didn't find the back of the net for 17 games - that was until he scored his first professional hat-trick and left to a standing ovation against Scunthorpe United in February 2010.

    He got praise from manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, who said "he is not far from Beckham in terms of his delivery of set-pieces" and penned a new deal with the Foxes in March 2011, which would keep him at the club until 2015. Gallagher has made one international appearance for Scotland, when Berti Vogts was in charge, in a 4-0 defeat against Wales in February 2004 but hasn't featured since.
