Robert (Bobby) Geddes (born 12 August 1960) is a Scottish former footballer who played as a goalkeeper. Geddes is currently goalkeeping coach at first club Dundee, a position he previously held at city rivals Dundee United.
Inverness-born Geddes began his professional career in 1980 with Dundee, and was part of the side who finished runners-up in the First Division and League Cup that season. In 1990 after ten years at Dens Park, Geddes moved west to Kilmarnock where in 1993 he was part of the promotion-winning side. A short spell with Raith Rovers followed in the mid-90s before spending two years in Northern Ireland with Linfield where he won the Irish League Cup in successive seasons. At the end of the decade, Geddes returned to Scotland with Brechin City, marking his twentieth and final season in professional football.
Geddes moved into management with junior side Carnoustie Panmure, adopting a player/manager role which brought the club the Scottish Junior Cup in 2003–04. In April 2005, Geddes moved into a goalkeeping coaching role with Dundee United, where he stayed before returning to Dundee in the same role. In April 2008, injuries forced 47-year old Geddes to appear as the substitute goalkeeper in a match against Hamilton Academical. Coincidentally, the New Douglas Park club were also forced to name their goalkeeping coach Brian Potter as their substitute goalkeeper. Potter was a used substitute in the 1-1 draw, whilst Geddes, listed as a trialist, was an unused substitute.
On 21 April 2010, Geddes appeared as a substitute goalkeeper for Dundee against Raith Rovers after Tony Bullock went off with a hamstring injury after 27 minutes which Dundee lost 1-0. Geddes became the oldest player to appear for Dundee in a league match, at 49 years old.
