Gjorgji Hristov or Ǵorǵi Hristov (Macedonian: Ѓорѓи Христов) (born 30 January 1976 in Bitola, Socialist Republic of Macedonia, Yugoslavia) is a Macedonian football coach and former striker.

Hristov played for Partizan Belgrade when English team Barnsley[1] signed him during summer 1997 for £1.5 million, a club record fee. Following the relegation of Barnsley from the FA Premier League that same season (1997/98), Hristov moved to NEC Nijmegen in the Netherlands. Having trouble with injuries, he moved to Scottish club Dunfermline Athletic in January 2005, playing there for six months before leaving for Debrecen (Hungary). In January 2007 he moved to Cypriot football club Olympiakos Nicosia for six months.

Hristov is the Macedonia national football team's second all-time leading scorer, with 16 goals.
