Albert George "Bert" Murray (born 22 September 1942 in Hoxton, London) is an English former footballer who played as a winger. He played more than 100 games in the Football League for each of his four clubs, namely Chelsea, Birmingham City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Peterborough United. He won six caps for England at under-23 level.

Murray started his career with Chelsea, and was an important figure in manager Tommy Docherty's "Diamonds" side of the mid-1960s, which won the League Cup in 1965 and narrowly missed out on FA Cup and League success. He made 183 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 44 goals.

Murray, along with several team mates, fell out with Docherty and was transferred to Birmingham City in 1966, where he linked up with ex-Chelsea team mate, Barry Bridges. He later played for Brighton & Hove Albion and Peterborough United.

He went on to run a pub in Market Deeping, south Lincolnshire.
