Craig McPherson is a former Scottish professional footballer, who retired in 2006. He played as a left-back or left-sided midfielder.

McPherson started his career with his home town club Greenock Morton, where he played mainly on the left hand side of midfield, occasionally being played as a full-back by then manager Allan McGraw. McPherson then played for Clyde and Airdrieonians. He followed manager Ian McCall in moving to Falkirk after the Airdrieonians club closed in 2002. He won promotion with Falkirk in 2005 and retired after one season in the Scottish Premier League.

McPherson returned to Falkirk, in 2009, as academy technical director.[1]

In 2014, McPherson became assistant manager of his old club Morton,[2] and signed a two-year extension in May 2016.[3]
