 Managers Stats & Profile - Matt McQueen

Matthew 'Matt' McQueen (born May 18, 1863 - died September 28, 1944) was a Scottish football player who became a director and manager of Liverpool F.C.

McQueen stepped into the managerial hot seat as a temporary measure in early 1923 when David Ashworth surprisingly resigned to take over the Oldham hotseat, it was surprising as Ashworth had guided the Reds to the league title the previous season and were well on the way to recording back to back championships when he left.

Not only did he see the club safely through to a successful defence of their First Division championship trophy, he stayed in the manager’s chair for 5 years even though he was nearly 60 years old at the time he was asked to take over. When Matt took over the reins at Anfield he became the first former player to manage the club.

But before he stood down, McQueen had made one of Liverpool’s most significant signings, South African Gordon Hodgson, a wonderful striker of the ball who would go on score nearly 250 senior goals for the club in fewer than 400 appearances.

Whilst on a scouting mission to Sheffield McQueen was involved in a road accident and he lost a leg. His health remained poor finally leading to his retirement in February 1928, living in Kemlyn Road just a stone’s throw from the stadium, in fact the Centenary Stand now covers the site where McQueen's house once stood. He remained a frequent and popular visitor to the club for the rest of his life. He died at the age of 81 in September 1944.
