Daniel Morrison McLennan (5 May 1925 11 May 2004) was a Scottish football player and coach. As a player, he was a Scottish League Cup winner with East Fife. His extensive coaching career took him all around the world and spanned a period of forty years, during which he managed ten national teams.

Born in Stirling, Scotland, the young Daniel McLennan was a talented inside left representing his country at Schoolboy level before being snapped up by Rangers as a 17 year-old apprentice. McLennan moved onto play for Dundee and East Fife, where he had his most successful spell as a player.

His first coaching role came as player-manager of Berwick Rangers in 1957, and went onto coach the national teams of the Philippines, Mauritius, Rhodesia, Iran, Bahrain, Iraq, Malawi, Jordan, Fiji, and Libya.
