Andrew "Andy" Charles Rhodes (born 23 August 1964 in Doncaster, Yorkshire) is a retired English football goalkeeper, and current goalkeeping coach.

Rhodes played for Oldham Athletic between 1988 and 1990, capping his time at Boundary Park with an appearance in the Football League Cup Final, which Oldham lost to Nottingham Forest. He later rejoined Oldham as goalkeeping coach.

Rhodes spent six years playing in the Scottish Premier League with Dunfermline Athletic and

Perth side St. Johnstone, and in 1995 had a brief stint on loan at Bolton Wanderers.

Rhodes was the goalkeeping coach at Ipswich Town from 2004 to May 2008. In October 2004, he became registered as an Ipswich Town player to cover for injuries. He remained a reserve keeper at Ipswich until 2008. Ipswich manager Jim Magilton praised his work with the club however after another failed promotion attempt he wanted to shake up his backroom staff.
