Ian Johnson (born 7 March 1983 in Liverpool) is an English football midfielder. He is the grandson of former Liverpool player Ronnie Moran.[1]

Johnson started his career at Wigan Athletic. He made his debut for the club on 9 January 2001 in a 3–2 away win against Oldham Athletic in the Football League Trophy,[2] and made a further appearance in the next round of the competition in a 2–1 defeat against Walsall. He signed a one-year professional contract with the club at the end of the season, but failed to make a first-team appearance during the following season and was released in April 2002.[3] He then joined Southport, where he made one appearance in the Liverpool Senior Cup, scoring in a 3–1 win against Prescot Cables.[4] He was released, however, in March 2003 without making a single league appearance for the club.[5] He then signed for Marine, playing seven times and scoring once,[6] before joining Burscough in March 2004.[7]

After a good first season with the club, in which he scored six goals,[8] Johnson suffered a cruciate ligament injury, keeping him out for most of the following season.[9][10] In 2008, he signed for newly formed A.F.C. Liverpool,[1] where he played 14 times and scored twice during the 2008–09 season.[11][12]
