Rafael Felipe Scheidt (born February 10, 1976 in Porto Alegre, Brazil) is a Brazilian footballer. He was signed by the John Barnes/Kenny Dalglish management of Celtic from Grêmio for £5m and failed to make an impact. Scheidt's arrival was met with derision from opposing fans due to the amusing pronunciation of his last name. Plagued by injury and finding it hard to settle he started one game in the 1999-00 in Scottish football and was let out on loan to Corinthians by Martin O'Neill after just three appearances. The Guardian newspaper called Scheidt the second worst transfer in the history of soccer in an article published in 2001. In 2006 Scheidt was released by Botafogo. Scheidt has three caps for Brazil.
