Adam McLean (b. in Glasgow 27 April 1899; d. 1973) was a Scottish footballer who played for Celtic, Sunderland, Aberdeen, and Partick Thistle. An outside-left, he was an integral part of the Celtic team of the 1920s. He provided many assists to Jimmy McGrory, the greatest British goalscorer of all time. In August 1928, after a dispute over terms, he left Celtic Park reluctantly for Sunderland before returning north again with Aberdeen. During the 1933 close season he was transferred to Partick Thistle.
