Henry George Smith (born 10 March 1956 in Douglas Water, Scotland) was a goalkeeper who played the majority of his career with Heart of Midlothian.

He made his debut for Hearts in a League Cup win over Airdrie at Broomfield in 1981.

He won three caps for Scotland between 1988 and 1992 against Saudi Arabia, Northern Ireland and Canada and was part of the Scotland squad at Euro 92. He was perhaps unfortunate to play during a time when Scotland had the services of Jim Leighton and Andy Goram, which restricted his opportunities at international level.

Henry Smith can still be seen representing Scotland at the Home Nations Masters Tournament and last participated in March, 2009. At 53 years of age, he was the oldest player in the tournament.
