Andy Blair (born 18 December 1959 in Kirkcaldy) is a Scottish former professional footballer, who spent his career in English football.

Blair made his league debut for Coventry City, whom he had joined as an apprentice, on 28 October 1978 in a 2-1 win against Birmingham City. He also played top-flight football at Aston Villa (in two separate spells) and Sheffield Wednesday, respectively, and on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In November 1984, while playing for Sheffield Wednesday against Luton Town, he achieved the unusual distinction of being the first player to ever score a hat-trick of penalties in the League Cup.

He also appeared for Barnsley and Northampton Town before playing in Malta for Naxxar Lions later returning to returning to England to play for a number of non-league teams. He is currently working as a scout for Stoke City.

Andy's son, Matthew, is currently playing for Conference National side York City
