George Shaw (born 10 February 1969 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former football player and manager.

Shaw began his career with St. Mirren but left the club in June 1991 for Partick Thistle when he and Mark McWalter were exchanged for Chic Charnley and David Elliot.[1] He followed this up with spells at Dundee, Dunfermline Athletic, Ross County, back at Partick Thistle, Clydebank, Stranraer, Forfar Athletic and Arbroath before dropping out of the Scottish Football League to play for Shettleston.

Shaw returned to Forfar Athletic under manager Ray Farningham, initially serving as his assistant before succeeding him in the role.[2] The team struggled, ultimately finishing bottom of the Second Division although Shaw was sacked in March before the season had ended.[3] Shaw now manages amateur team Kilsyth United AFC, who play in the Premier Division of the SECL.[4][better source needed]
