Dariusz Paweł Dziekanowski (born 30 September 1962 in Warsaw) is a Polish football trainer and former player. He started his career at Polonia Warsaw, between 1973 79, throughout the youth set-up and into a very young first team, but went to ŁKS Łódź from 1979-83.

Having not impressed the coach during his final season he moved to Widzew Łódź in 1985. However, the following year he was selected in the Poland 1986 FIFA World Cup squad. He won the Polish Cup in 1989. He also had a minor career in archery, in 1988. He decided to move to Celtic in 1989 and became a fan favourite after scoring an amazing four goals in a nail-biting European Cup Winners' Cup tie against Partizan Belgrade. He left Celtic to join Bristol City in 1992.

Troubled years followed where he travelled all around Europe, but eventually he found himself settled back in Warsaw in his retirement season of 1996/97. Since his retirement, he has worked in Polish television as a football commentator. From July 2006 to May 2008 he was an assistant to Leo Beenhakker for the Poland national football team.
