Stephen "Stevie" Gray (born 7 February 1967 in Glasgow;[2] died 19 September 2009 in Irvine[2]) was a Scottish professional footballer who played as a right winger. Gray made 85 appearances in the Scottish Football League for Aberdeen and Airdrie between 1985 and 1993. Gray also represented Scotland at under-21 international level.[2]

He won the Scottish Youth Cup with Aberdeen in 1985,[3] and then broke into the first team managed by Alex Ferguson, winning the 1985 Scottish League Cup Final.[2] He left Aberdeen in 1990 to join Airdrie, where he won a First Division winners' medal, but he dropped out of the senior game in 1993 to sign for Highland League team Huntly.[2] After Gray's death, former teammate Stewart McKimmie commented that Gray had perhaps lost his way after Ferguson left Aberdeen in 1986.[2]
