Bruce David Rioch (-enˈriːɒkpron; born 30 April 1947) is an English-born football manager and former player. He was manager of Aalborg BK in the Danish Superliga, until his sacking on 23 October 2008.

As a player, he made more than 550 appearances in the Football League and, by virtue of his father's birthplace, represented Scotland in 24 matches; he became the first Scottish captain to be born in England. As a manager, he has taken charge of clubs in England, the United States, and Denmark. His brother Neil, son Gregor and nephew Matty Holmes were also professional footballers.
