Carl Vilhelm "Skoma'r" Hansson, simply known as Carl "Skoma'r" Hansen (17 May 1898 19 May 1978), was a Danish football (soccer) player and manager. He played in the forward position, and won the Danish championship with Boldklubben 1903 before moving abroad to play for Scottish club Rangers F.C. as the first professional player in Danish football history. With Rangers, he won four Scottish championships. Hansen played seven games and scored three goals for the Denmark national football team, and was a part of the Denmark team at the 1920 Summer Olympics. As a manager, he managed a number of Danish teams and won the Danish championship with AB.

Skoma'r was a nickname he got after his father's profession as a shoemaker (da:Skomager), and he was most commonly known in Denmark as Carl Skoma'r. He was the older brother of Danish international Henry Hansen.
