David Peter Gray (born 4 May 1988) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a full back for Preston North End.

Born in historic Roslin, a village south of Edinburgh, Gray was brought up through the ranks by Heart of Midlothian until the age of 16, when he signed for Manchester United for a fee of £50,000. Since then, he has spent time on loan with several clubs.

During the 2005 06 season, Gray broke into the Manchester United reserve team, being deployed mainly at right-back, coming from the bench. He made his debut for the senior team in a League Cup match against Crewe Alexandra on 25 October 2006. He started the game before being substituted in the second half for Kieran Lee, who went on to score the winning goal in extra time.

Gray was sent on loan to Belgian club Royal Antwerp in January 2007 in order to gain match experience. However, after just two games he suffered an injury which sidelined him for the rest of the season. He went on loan again in November 2007, this time to Crewe Alexandra for a month, as cover for the club's injured players.

He joined Football League Championship club Plymouth Argyle on loan in January 2009 until the end of the 2008 09 season. He made 15 appearances in all competitions before returning to his parent club in May. Gray rejoined Plymouth Argyle for a second loan spell in September 2009. He featured regularly once again, making 12 league appearances for the Pilgrims before returning to Old Trafford in December 2009 at the end of his loan agreement.

Gray's Manchester United contract expired at the end of the 2009 10 season, and he was allowed to leave the club on a free transfer. On 16 July 2010, he signed a two-year contract with Preston North End.
