Charles Ross "Charlie" Pringle (born 18 October 1894, date of death unknown) was a Scottish footballer who played as a wing-half.

Born in the village of Nitshill, south of Glasgow, Pringle's first professional club was St. Mirren, for whom he signed during World War I. On 12 February 1921 he won his first and only cap for the Scottish national team in a 2-1 win against Wales.

In 1922 Pringle signed for Manchester City, making his debut on August 26, 1922 in the opening game of the 1922-23 season, a 2-0 defeat at Sheffield United. He then proceeded to play in every Manchester City match for over a year. He was part of the Manchester City team which played in the 1926 FA Cup final, and was captain for part of his City career. After winning a Second Division champions medal in 1927-28, Pringle left Manchester City in the close season as part of a venture to form a new club, Manchester Central F.C.

He later played for Bradford Park Avenue, Lincoln City and Stockport County. After his playing career finished he became a coach. His coaching career included a spell at his former club St. Mirren.

Pringle married Lily Meredith, the daughter of fellow Manchester City player Billy Meredith, and played in the same team as his father-in-law seven times.
