Albert "Albie" Murphy (November 1930 in Dublin – June 2000 in Dublin) was an Irish former professional football player.

He joined Clyde in Scotland from Transport in 1949 before returning to Shamrock Rovers in 1951. He then rejoined Clyde for many years winning the Scottish Cup with them twice in 1955 and 1958.

He signed for Shamrock Rovers again in September 1959 and took over as coach in September 1960 for one season.

He also won one cap for Ireland on 19 October 1955, playing in a 4–1 defeat to Yugoslavia at Dalymount Park in a friendly international.

Murphy was known for his fiery temper, with two notable instances of this occurring in games against Rangers. He was sent off at least twice against Rangers in his career, once in a Glasgow Cup final in 1956, where he refused to leave the field and had to be escorted away by the police. He was given a two-month ban by the Scottish Football Association for this incident. On another occasion, Murphy was sent off against Rangers following a fight on the pitch.
