Douglas "Dougie" Arnott (born 5 August 1964, Lanark, Scotland) is a Scottish former footballer who played as a striker. Arnott's entire career was at Motherwell, spending twelve seasons with the Fir Park club before retiring due to an injury in 1998. In 1990-91, Arnott was part of Motherwell's Scottish Cup-winning side, which was his only senior honour.

On 11 September 2008, Arnott's belated testimonial match went ahead against an Old Firm select. Other players lined up for Arnott's side included former goalkeeper Sieb Dijkstra and defenders Chris McCart and Fraser Wishart, while the Old Firm team included Ally McCoist and Gordon Durie. The Old Firm side won 5-4, in a game which saw Arnott score the first of the match, and Ally McCoist net a hat-trick. Competition winner and Motherwell fan Grant Rough, who won the chance to play for 45 minutes for the Motherwell side during the game in a prize draw, was more involved than he may have liked, he gave away a dubious penalty kick when he felled Billy Dodds in the box, from which Andy Walker scored.
