Allan William McManus (born 17 November 1974 in Paisley, Renfrewshire) is a Scottish professional footballer, currently playing for Dumbarton.

Morton are McManus' ninth senior club, after playing for Hearts, Livingston, Alloa Athletic, Ayr United, Airdrie United, St. Johnstone, Greenock Morton and the now extinct Airdrie.

McManus scored his first St Johnstone goal on 2 January 2007, a 90th-minute winner against Ross County at McDiarmid Park. McManus made his début for Morton in a 6-3 victory over Stranraer in the League Cup. After the sacking of Davie Irons, McManus was made caretaker manager of Greenock Morton alongside James Grady.

They were appointed permanently (with McManus as the assistant manager) on Halloween 2009. McManus and Grady were sacked on 9 May 2010, after narrowly avoiding relegation from the First Division.

McManus was then offered a chance to take up playing again with Dumbarton, and agreed to sign for the 2010-11 season.

McManus joined third division leaders Arbroath on a one month emergency loan on 18 February 2011.
