Ian William Murray (born 20 March 1981 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional association football player who is captain of his home town club Hibernian. Murray has represented Scotland six times. His versatility has seen him deployed in a variety of roles in his career, including centre back, full back and midfielder. Murray has previously stated that he prefers to play at centre back or central midfield.

Murray started his career with Hibs, and captained the club in the 2004 - 05 season after Grant Brebner left the club. Murray signed for Rangers under freedom of contract in 2005, but he was troubled with injuries during his time at Ibrox club; Murray was eventually diagnosed with a form of arthritis. He was released by Rangers in August 2007 and signed for Norwich City, but fell out of favour there after a managerial change. He returned to Hibs in January 2008, and was made vice captain of the team in July 2009.
