Alan William Morgan (born 27 November 1983 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former professional footballer.

Morgan began his career with English Premiership side Blackburn Rovers, but failed to break into the first team, and instead was released. He then won a move to the Scottish Premier League with Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2005. In almost three years in the Scottish Highlands, Morgan made 31 appearances, scoring just 3 goals. After falling out of favour, Morgan was shipped of to Ross County at the tail end of the 2006–07 season, where he made 5 appearances, and failing to score any goals.

He was released by Inverness in December 2007, before being quickly snapped up by injury-hit Kilmarnock. He debuted for Kilmarnock in their 1–0 home defeat to Falkirk on 2 January, a match that many felt should have been postponed due to the death of Motherwell captain Phil O'Donnell the previous weekend.

He joined St Johnstone on a six-month loan on 26 August 2008,[2] and returned to Kilmarnock at the end of that deal.[3] After being released from his Kilmarnock contract, Morgan signed for Stenhousemuir in February 2009.

After leaving Stenhousemuir, Morgan signed for local amateur team Musselburgh where he played out the season making 24 appearances and scoring 6 goals. After achieving promotion to Premier 1, it is reported that Morgan may still leave to play as many say he should, at a higher level.
