Forbes Johnston (3 August 1971 12 July 2007) was a Professional football player, playing primarily in defence, but also spending some time in the midfield.

He started his career playing for junior side Musselburgh Athletic, and joined the professional ranks at Falkirk where he played from 1990 to 1996. He later joined Airdrieonians, where he played from 1996 to 2000. Forbes also represented his country in the Scotland Under 21 team.

While playing football, Johnston obtained his law degree from Edinburgh University, and after a career-ending knee injury when he was 28, he left Scotland to join accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh, before moving to Sydney and then Adelaide, Australia.

Johnston was found dead in his car on 12 July 2007, aged 35. According to the Adelaide police, he had committed suicide.
