John Brogan (born March 9, 1954) is a former Scottish footballer who played for several Scottish clubs in the 1970s and 1980s. He is perhaps best known for his spell as a prolific goalscorer for his second senior club St. Johnstone. He scored 140 goals in league and cup matches, a record which stands to this day.

Brogan was appointed manager of Stirling Albion in 1988 and guided the club to the Second Division Championship in 1991, a Scottish Cup Quarter Final in 1990 and ensured that the team became the highest ranked part time team in Scotland. He was sacked by the Yo-Yo's in 1994 with the club facing relegation, a situation only caused by re-organisation of the SFL.

He then had an unsuccessful spell in charge of Arbroath between 1995 and 1996. Following his spell at Gayfield, he moved into the juniors where he and Martin Clark took charge of East Region outfit Armadale Thistle then Blantyre Vics, where they won promotion in 1998.

Brogan was the manager of East Kilbride Thistle in the Junior Leagues, where he won the Sectional League Cup in 2002 and promotion from Central League Division One in 2005. He is currently manager of Yoker Athletic FC, a position he took in 2008 after leaving East Kilbride Thistle.
