David Duff Holt (born 3 January 1936) is a Scottish former international footballer who played as a left back. During his playing career, Holt made over 300 appearances in the Scottish Football League for Queen's Park, Heart of Midlothian and Partick Thistle between 1957 and 1970.

At Hearts (who were reigning Scottish champions and Scottish League Cup holders at the time he joined the club), during his nine-year spell Holt won the 1962–63 Scottish League Cup and was an important member of the team which only missed out on the 1964–65 Scottish Division One title on goal average.

Holt, who earned five caps for Scottish national side, also represented Great Britain at the 1960 Summer Olympics[2] (being able to do so as he played for Queen's Park who operate on an amateur basis).
