Andrew (Andy) Murdoch (born 25 June 1970) is a Scottish former footballer who spent most of his career as a goalkeeper for Partick Thistle. Murdoch Began his career with Celtic and had two separate loan spells with Partick before becoming their record signing in February 1991 for a fee of £85,000. Murdoch moved out of the senior game in 1995 to join the police and spent time with Greenock Juniors before returning to Thistle for a final short spell. He also played with Johnstone Burgh.

Murdoch was involved in one of Scottish football's more bizarre moments when Paddy Connolly was denied a hat-trick during his time at Dundee United, when referee Les Mottram failed to notice his shot had come back from the inside stanchion in a February 1993 match against Partick. Despite defender Martin Clark handing the ball back to Murdoch to restart, Mottram missed the goal and handball to wave play on, with Connolly scoring twice in the match in a 4-0 win. Mottram went on to referee in the 1994 World Cup the following year.
