Alexander Robertson (born 26 April 1971 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former footballer who played in midfield.
His father, Malcolm Robertson, was also a professional footballer, with Ayr United, Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian.
Robertson began his career with Rangers where manager Graeme Souness labelled him the best young player in Britain. He scored Rangers' first goal under manager Walter Smith in a 1–0 victory over St Mirren on 20 April 1991 at Love Street. However, in August 1997 he was jailed for assaulting a restaurant doorman in Edinburgh while drunk. He had a previous conviction for assault in 1991. Robertson later received facial scarring in a bottle attack.
