Robert Frame "Bobby" Main (10 February 1909 – 30 March 1985) was a Scottish professional football player who is best known for his time with Rangers.

Main began his career at local team Baillieston Juniors and joined Rangers in 1929, initially as understudy to Sandy Archibald. He was in and out of the side for four years before becoming a regular in 1933. During his spell at the club he won two Scottish league championships, two Scottish Cups, three Glasgow Cups and two Charity Cups. He made 158 appearances for Rangers and scored 35 goals.

He left Ibrox in 1939 and joined New Brighton but the outbreak of the Second World War curtailed his football career.
