Victor Peter "Vic" Kasule (born 28 May 1965 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former footballer of Ugandan descent, who played as a winger for several clubs including Albion Rovers, Meadowbank Thistle, Shrewsbury Town, Chesterfield, Hamilton Academical, Portadown, Bohemians and Montrose. He also had brief spells playing in Finland and Malta.


Club career

Vic signed for Albion Rovers in 1982 as a 17-year-old, scoring on his debut and gaining 18 goals in total in 132 appearances and providing countless assists.

When playing for Meadowbank, Kasule was one of a handful black players in the Scottish game - a fact that the Meadowbank supporters were proud of.


Kasule was once described by The Guardian as "an armoured car of a winger with a cannon for a shot". "Vodka Vic", as he was nicknamed, was legendary as much for his off-the-field recreational exploits and antics as those on it. It was reported in the Sunday Herald that he was once disciplined by three separate clubs within a few months. He is often described as extravagantly gifted but ludicrously ill-disciplined. In 2005, he topped a poll for "Albion Rovers' all-time cult hero" run by Football Focus of the BBC.
