Dariusz Adamczuk (born 20 October 1969 in Szczecin) is a former Polish professional footballer.



He started his career with Pogoń Szczecin during the 1987–88 season, before moving on to play for Eintracht Frankfurt,[1] Dundee, Udinese Calcio and Belenenses.

It was in the 1999–00 season that he would get his big break, signing on a free transfer for Scottish champions Rangers from Dundee. He started off as a regular in the Rangers team, making 16 appearances up to and including a UEFA Cup tie against Borussia Dortmund on 7 December 1999, but didn't make any further appearances that season.[2] The following season he made 3 appearances in the league across October and November 2000, however these would be his last appearances for Rangers.[3] He had a loan spell at English club Wigan Athletic in 2001. In 2002 it was reported that he was suffering from depression.[4] Adamczuk retired in 2002,[5] then returned in 2006 to play for Pogoń Szczecin Nowa.
