John O'Hare (born 24 September 1946) is a Scottish former footballer. His clubs included Sunderland, Derby County and also Nottingham Forest and was part of their European Cup victory in 1980, coming on as a substitute in the final. He also won thirteen caps for the Scotland national team, scoring five goals.
He moved to Derby County for £20,000 in 1967. There was initial criticism of him as he was seen as a large but slow forward. However the management team of Brian Clough persisted with him and in his second season he justified his fee. He establish a strike partnership with Kevin Hector as they led Derby to the 1971-72 Football League First Division title.
O'Hare and McGovern reunited with Clough at Nottingham Forest in February 1975 for a combined £130,000 fee. Forest were promoted to the top flight at the end of the 1976-77 season. In their first season back up Forest won the league by seven points (two for a win). Forest won the 1979 European Cup Final the season after.
O'Hare is currently a part-time chauffeur for Toyota and is a host of the executive/VIP guest suite at Nottingham Forest's home games.
