Ragnar Nikolay Larsen (7 January 1925 – 14 January 1982) was a Norwegian football midfielder. He later became a football manager and, after actively retiring from the sport, he took up a position as a sports journalist for Aftenposten, a Norwegian newspaper.

Larsen played as a midfielder and started his playing career with Sandaker. He then relocated to Italy in 1951, spending time at both Lazio and Genoa. He also spent time with Swiss side Lugano[1] before returning to his first club and then retiring from the field in 1962.[2]

Larsen was last capped in 1961, aged 37 years and 201 days, and is the fifth oldest player at the Norwegian national team.[3]

As well as being capped for the Norway national football team, he was its manager for two different spells. He also coached Lillestrøm SK[4] and Strømsgodset.[5]
