Alexander Barbour (7 June 1862 - 29 December 1930) was a Scottish footballer who played for Renton, Bolton Wanderers, Glossop North End, Nottingham Forest and the Scotland national team.

He was born in Dumbarton.

Barbour, a striker, won the Scottish Cup with Renton in 1885 and won his first, and only, Scotland cap the same year, scoring in an 8-2 win over Ireland. He also played in the unsuccessful Scottish Cup final the previous year as Renton lost 3-1 to Queen's Park.

He was signed by Bolton Wanderers in May 1888 and scored 17 goals in 34 matches in three years for the club. He had a season with Glossop North End in season 1891-92 and was then signed by Nottingham Forest as a coach, although he made one final league appearance for them in 1893.
