Brian Reid (born 15 June 1970 in Paisley) is a Scottish former footballer and is currently manager of Ayr United.

Reid, a central defender, started his career at Morton. After winning the Cappielow club's player of the season award, Reid became Graeme Souness's last signing for Rangers but a cruciate ligament knee injury, shortly after signing for the Ibrox club, almost finished his career. Reid was played sparingly for Rangers, who eventually loaned him out to Newcastle United in 1994 but he made no first-team appearances for the St James' Park club.

After returning to Morton in 1996 for two seasons, Reid went on to play for Burnley, Dunfermline Athletic, Blackpool (on loan initially, then signed permanently), Falkirk, Queen of the South and Ayr United.

He was appointed manager of Ayr United in October 2007.

In his first full season in charge of the Honest Men, Reid took them up to the First Division following play-off victories over Brechin City and Airdrie United; however, Ayr failed to remain in the First Division, finishing bottom, and were relegated after one season.

In the Seasonal playoffs of the 2010-2011 season "The Honest Men" were once again promoted to the first Division after a 2-1 win.
