James Andrew Brogan (born 5 June 1944 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former footballer, who played in over 200 league games for Jock Stein's highly successful Celtic sides of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He joined Celtic from local side St Roch's.

He played in the 1970 European Cup Final and won four caps for Scotland.[2] He won consecutive Scottish League Championships from 1968 to 1974, Scottish Cups in 1969, 1971, 1972 and 1974, and the Scottish League Cup in 1968/69, 1969/70 and 1974/75.

His older brother Frank also began his career at Celtic, though is better known as a player for Ipswich.[3] The siblings played in two matches alongside one another for Celtic.[4]

In 2017, Brogan's family confirmed that he had been suffering from dementia for several years, which they believed was connected to his football career.[5]
