Robert "Bobby" Barr (born 23 June 1988) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Raith Rovers.


Born in Glasgow, Barr first played for St Johnstone,[1] but failed to make it into the first team. After being released by St Johnstone he was given a chance by Paul Martin at Albion Rovers but was released for his persistent bad attitude, and signed by Livingston manager Gary Bollan in January 2010.[2] Livingston won the Scottish Third Division.[3]

Before he was released by Livingston, Barr was sent to East Fife on loan for a period of three months and scored on his debut at home to Ayr United. In June 2013, he signed for Brechin City,[4] and after two years at the club moved to Greenock Morton on a one-year deal.[5]

Barr signed a pre-contract agreement on a two-year deal with league rivals Raith Rovers,[6] with his signing being confirmed at the end of May 2016.[7]
