Peter Jacobus van Vossen (born April 21, 1968 in Zierikzee, Netherlands) is a former Dutch footballer, who played for K.S.K. Beveren, Anderlecht, Ajax, Istanbulspor, Rangers, Feyenoord, De Graafschap and Vitesse. During his time with Ajax he won the 1994–95 European Cup. During his time at Rangers he is well known for missing an open goal in a derby against Celtic. This led to the term 'doing a Van Vossen', although Rangers won the match 1–0.
He joined Rangers in January 1996 in an exchange deal for Russian striker Oleg Salenko from Turkish side Istanbulsor, but made just seven Scottish Premier Division appearances that season, failing to score. He managed five goals in 14 appearances the following season as Rangers matched Celtic's record of nine successive league title, but featured just once in the 1997–98 campaign before returning to Holland and signing for Feyenoord.
Van Vossen picked up 31 international caps for Holland, scoring nine goals. He participated at 1994 FIFA World Cup and at the Euro 2000. Van Vossen was initially selected to participate at Euro 1992, but missed it due to thrombosis.
