Ian Grant Johnson (born 24 March 1972 in Dundee) is a Scottish former footballer who is currently a coach for Brechin City. He played as a midfielder before finishing his playing career in 2007 and works full-time in law.

Career[edit]

Johnson played for Dundee United until his mid-twenties, making over eighty appearances for The Terrors. He played eight games for United in 1996–97, which would be his final full season at Tannadice. In November 1997, he signed for Huddersfield Town, where he would spend the next three seasons. In August 2000, he had a month with Clydebank, then moved to Alloa Athletic for the remainder of the 2000–01 season. Two seasons at Montrose followed, before his move to Brechin City in 2003. He left the club in August 2007, returning a year later in a coaching role.[2]

Away from football, Johnson has completed a law degree and is now employed by Dundee law firm Thorntons.[3]
