Graham Fyfe (born 18 August 1951 in Motherwell) is a Scottish former professional football player, who is best known for his time with Rangers.

Fyfe made his first appearance for Rangers at Ibrox in league match against Hearts on 25 March 1969. He started on the right wing in a 3 - 2 home win. He went on to make 70 appearances for the club, including the first match against Ajax Amsterdam in the first ever European Super Cup. Fyfe also scored 23 goals which was not bad at all from a midfielder.

He left to join Hibernian after seven seasons in Govan, but his stay in Edinburgh was short lived, as he moved on to Dumbarton the following year. He played at Boghead Park for two seasons before moving to the United States to play with Major Indoor Soccer League sides Pittsburgh Spirit and Cleveland Force.

In 1980, Fyfe said that he had to leave Rangers because he had married a girl who had been Catholic. However his former Rangers team-mates Bobby Russell and Derek Johnstone, who had also married Catholics and who had highly successful careers at Rangers, did not support his claims.

Fyfe signed with the St. Louis Steamers in 1983 and spent one season with them.
