Alex Maley (26 May 1874 – 20 September 1949) was a Scottish football manager and journalist. He was the younger brother of Tom Maley and Willie Maley.

Alex Maley managed a number of clubs in Scotland and England, including Clyde, Clydebank, Hibernian and Crystal Palace.[1]

Maley became manager of Crystal Palace in November 1925,[2] and oversaw thirteenth and sixth-place finishes in Division Three in 1926 and 1927 respectively.[3] However, the next season started poorly and after a succession of defeats Maley resigned in October 1927,[2] and returned to Scotland where he had a second spell as manager of Clydebank.[3] He later served as a director of Hibernian.[3]
