Robert Garrett (born 5 May 1988) is a Northern Irish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for NIFL Premiership side Linfield. He has previously played for Stoke City, Wrexham FC Edmonton and Portadown.
Garrett joined Stoke City in 2002 and played just twice for the club both coming as a substitute in games towards the end of the 2005–06 season. In the 2006–07 season, Garrett enjoyed a loan spell at Football League Two side Wrexham. He returned to Wrexham again on loan in the 2007–08 season. In the summer of 2007 Garrett returned to Belfast and joined Linfield and became one of their most important players. As Linfield added more quality to their midfield Robert's first team chances dried up, at which stage he had to consider his future.
It was announced in May 2017 that Garrett would be returning to Linfield.
In May 2009, Garrett received his first call up to the Northern Ireland squad for a friendly with Italy in Pisa. He was one of five Irish League players called up, one of which was former Linfield team mate Alan Mannus.
