Iain Davidson (born 14 January 1984) is a Scottish professional footballer, who is currently at Scottish Championship side Raith Rovers. Davidson mainly plays as a defensive midfielder but can also be played in the defence. He has previously played for Brechin City, Scarborough, another spell at Raith Rovers and Dundee.


Davidson started his career on the books of Sunderland, but was released in 2003.

He headed back to Scotland to sign with part-timers Brechin City, but only lasted six games at Glebe Park before heading back to England to play a couple of games with Scarborough.

Upon his release from the now defunct Yorkshire side, Davidson returned to his home town of Kirkcaldy to sign for Raith Rovers. Since then, despite having his injury troubles, Davidson was appointed team captain.[1]

Davidson signed a one-year contract with Dundee in June 2012.[2]

On 14 May 2015, Davidson was released from Dundee alongside team mate Jamie Reid by mutual consent.[3]

On 8 August 2015, it was announced that Davidson had signed back at Raith Rovers.[4]
