Bobby Parker (born 27 March 1891)[1] was a Scottish professional footballer.

Born in Glasgow, Taylor started off his career at Rangers before moving to play for Everton in 1913 for a fee of £1,500.[2] He finished top goalscorer for Everton in the 1913/14 and 1914/15 seasons, the latter of which he was top scorer overall in the First Division. The First World War robbed him from cementing a place amongst Everton's greats as he returned home with a bullet lodged in his back. The injury made him a shadow of his former self and he was later sold to Nottingham Forest.

In retirement he worked as manager of Irish club Bohemians where he coached them to the Clean Sweep in 1927/28; winning the League of Ireland, FAI Cup, Shield and Leinster Senior Cup.
