Rúrik Gíslason (born 25 February 1988) is an Icelandic footballer who plays as a midfielder for 2. Bundesliga side 1. FC Nürnberg.

Rúrik signed for Charlton Athletic at the end of August 2005, but failed to make an appearance for Charlton's first team, having played for HK Kópavogur in his youth.

He also played for RSC Anderlecht, the then champions of Belgium for a year, but did not settle so he returned to HK Kópavogur. This was before his move to Charlton.

In 2011, Rúrik was chosen as part of the squad to represent Iceland at the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in Denmark. The striker was named on the bench for the opening game against Belarus.

Rúrik is a candidate for the right-wing Independence Party in the Icelandic parliamentary election, 2016.
