Anders Rasmussen (born 1 June 1976) is a Danish footballer who currently plays as a goalkeeper for AGF of the Danish Superliga. He has good reaction skills, but is insecure in the air.

In AGF was he hedge for the first keeper Steffen Rasmussen and only got four matches. Anders Rasmussen ended his football career in June 2011 to become deputy manager of the store. Since shortly after Steffen Rasmussen was injured, said the club ask Anders Rasmussen if he would help AGF i some months as a reserve goalkeeper for the newly purchased Emil Ousager, which he chose to go along with.

Rasmussen started his career in the Danish club Aarhus Gymnastik Forening (AGF) in 1997, playing in the secondary Danish 1st Division. He stayed two years with AGF, but did not get on the pitch for the club. He moved on to league rivals AC Horsens in 1999. In 2001, Rasmussen was brought to FC Midtjylland (FCM) in the top-flight Danish Superliga championship. He was initially a reserve for Danish international goalkeeper Peter Skov-Jensen. Rasmussen did not get a chance for an extended run in the team, before FCM sold Peter Skov-Jensen in January 2005.

After the sale, Rasmussen became the first choice goalkeeper, and helped FCM win bronze medals in the 2004 05 Superliga season. For the 2005 06 season, Rasmussen was in contention with Swedish goalkeeper Ola Tidman, and Rasmussen eventually won a place in the starting line-up. In the first half of the 2006 07 season, Rasmussen played 13 of FCM's first 18 games. In January 2007, FCM bought Czech goalkeeper Martin Raška, to be the new first choice keeper. Rasmussen wanted to secure a move away from FCM, and tried to get a contract with the Norwegian club Fredrikstad FK. He did not succeed, and returned to FCM, where he found himself surpassed by Martin Raška and the ten years younger Lasse Heinze.
