Paul Michael Lyons McStay MBE, nicknamed the Maestro (born 22 October 1964, Hamilton), is a former football player who spent his entire career with Scottish team Celtic F.C., making his debut in 1982 and retiring in 1997. He captained both Scotland and Celtic at all age levels. He was capped 76 times for his country and scored nine goals.

He helped Celtic win three league titles, the last one in 1988 and remains a popular figure amongst Celtic's fans and unusually admired by fans or arch rivals Rangers. The song "Willie Maley", which celebrates McStay (among other former players) has become popular in recent years.

He moved to live in Sydney Australia with his wife Anne Marie and their six children in 2010.
