Alexander "Sandy" Robertson (born 26 April 1971 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former footballer who played in midfield.

His father, Malky Robertson, was also a professional footballer, with Ayr United, Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian.[3]

Robertson began his career with Rangers where manager Graeme Souness labelled him the best young player in Britain.[4] He scored Rangers' first goal under manager Walter Smith in a 1–0 victory over St Mirren on 20 April 1991 at Love Street.[5] However, in August 1997 he was jailed for assaulting a restaurant doorman in Edinburgh while drunk.[4][6] He had a previous conviction for assault in 1991.[7] Robertson later received facial scarring in a bottle attack.[4]
