Stan Anderson (22 June 1939 - 3 December 1997) was a Scottish football player and manager.

Anderson was born in Craigneuk, Scotland. He started his career in 1957 at Hamilton Academical.[1] He moved to Rangers two years later but did not make the break through, making only one appearance for the club during a 4-1 win over Clyde on 27 April 1960. A return to Accies followed in 1961[1] then a season with Queen of the South[2] before a final spell with Hamilton.[1] In 1966 Anderson moved to Clyde and made over one hundred appearances.[3]

After retiring in 1970, Anderson joined the Dumbarton coaching staff. He returned to Rangers as reserve-team coach under William Waddell and later Jock Wallace. In 1973 he was appointed manager of Clyde but only spent three seasons in charge.
