Dave Baikie is a Scottish former football player who has since moved into management.

As a player Baikie spent his entire career in junior football and also cut his managerial teeth there before joining Arbroath F.C. in 1997. He remained at the club until 2000, leading the club from bottom of the Third Division to promotion, before resigning over a lack of funding.

Baikie returned to the junior ranks to manage Tayport but returned to the Scottish Football League in 2004 as manager of Cowdenbeath. He lost his job the following year, however, when he was charged with an assault outside a bar in Dundee.

Baikie was appointed manager of East Fife in 2006 during a turbulent period in the club's history. The club stabilised under his leadership and Baikie managed to win a manager of the month award during the 2008-09 season. However in April 2009 the club announced the resignation of Baikie as manager.

Baikie subsequently took charge of Scottish Junior Football East Region Super League club Linlithgow Rose and led them to their 2010 Scottish Junior Cup final victory.
