Charles "Charlie" McGillivray (5 July 1912 – 7 November 1986) was a Scottish footballer and manager. His position was inside forward (winger).


McGillivray was playing for Dundee United when he accepted the offer to become manager in November 1944. The club's youngest ever manager, McGillivray was in charge for eleven months, resigning in late 1945 when it was announced the club were looking for somebody from outside to manage. McGillivray had the misfortune to preside over United's record home defeat, a 9–1 loss to Aberdeen in February 1945.

He became Stirling Albion F.C.'s player coach in November 1945, leaving the club at end of the season. He later played five Eastern League games, scoring five times.
