Andrew Anderson (born 21 February 1909, date of death unknown) was a Scottish footballer who played for Scottish club Hearts and the Scotland national team. He was born in Airdrie.

Anderson, a right back, joined Hearts in 1929 from Baillieston Juniors and remained with the Edinburgh club for the remainder of his career, retiring in 1939 at the age of 30. He won 23 caps for Scotland between 1933 and 1938 and four caps for the Scottish League.

Anderson's brother-in-law Jock White, also an Airdrie man, played for Hearts and Scotland several years before Anderson. White returned to Hearts from Leeds United in 1930 and the two played together for four seasons.

After his playing retirement, Anderson worked as a joiner.
