Michael Doherty (born 20 August 1990 in Lanarkshire) is a Scottish football defender currently without a club following his release from Clyde. He is a product of Clyde's youth system.


Doherty signed a YTS contract with Clyde in July 2007, and was part of Clyde's Under 19 side.

He made his senior debut on the 14 August 2007, coming on as a substitute against Queen of the South in a 1-0 win in the Scottish League Cup. Doherty made Clyde history on this appearance, becoming the youngest person ever to play for Clyde in a competitive match, at the age of 16 years and 359 days.[1] However, this record was beaten by Connor Stevenson 20 months later.[2] He was released in June 2008 along with the rest of the YTS players.[3]
