Alexander Hector McMillan "Ally" McLeod (born 1 January 1951 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former professional footballer who played as a striker for many league clubs in Scotland and England.

McLeod played for Renfrew Juniors, where he had been successfully turned from a midfielder into a striker by manager Tommy Barrie. McLeod began his senior career with St. Mirren in 1970. He scored four goals in one Scottish League Cup game for St. Mirren against Rangers at Ibrox. It was the first time that Rangers had lost there to a lower division club and McLeod became the only opposing player to score four goals against Rangers at Ibrox in one match.

Southampton then signed McLeod, but he failed to settle in Hampshire and he returned to Scotland with Hibernian. MacLeod, who was a relatively prolific goalscorer in a defensive era, scored for Hibernian in the 1979 Scottish Cup Final second replay against Rangers.
