Alan McManus (born January 21, 1971 in Glasgow ) is a Scottish snooker player .


McManus began his professional career in 1990 and made it into the top 16 of the world rankings in just two years , where he stayed until 2005.

In 1992 and 1993 McManus reached the semifinals of the World Snooker Championship . He won the Dubai Classic and the Masters in 1994 . In 1996 he won the Thailand Masters . The Young Player of the Year in 1991 was part of the Scottish Dream Team along with Stephen Hendry and John Higgins , which won the Castrol-Honda World Cup in 1996 and the Coalite Nations Cup in 2001.

In his last appearance in a final of the Main Tour for the time being, he lost to Chris Small at the LG Cup in 2002/03 . In the two years that followed, his success subsided, so that in 2006 he fell out of the top 16 for the first time in 14 years. In the years that followed, he struggled to maintain his position in the top 48. In 2012 he reached his worst position in the world ranking list to date with 51st place.

McManus made a small comeback at the 2013 Welsh Open . He defeated Joe Perry 4: 3 in the round of 16 (after a 3-0 deficit) and was in the quarter-finals of a world ranking tournament for the first time since October 2006. There he had to admit defeat to his compatriot Stephen Maguire .

At the Snooker World Championship 2014 he made it to the quarterfinals, at the Snooker World Championship 2016 he (as the oldest participant) reached the semi-finals with a 13:11 against John Higgins . He lost that to Ding Junhui 11:17 .
