John Grant (born 16 June 1931 in Edinburgh) is a former Scottish professional footballer, who played for Hibernian, Raith Rovers and the Scotland national football team. Grant played for Scotland twice, against Northern Ireland and Wales during the 1959 British Home Championship.

Grant signed for Hibs in 1949, but had to wait until 1954 to make his league debut due to the strength of the Hibs side in the early 1950s. Hibs won the league championship in 1951 and 1952, and were denied a third successive championship in 1953 on goal average. Grant was a stalwart of the Hibs side for the following decade, but he was released by Jock Stein in 1964. Grant played for Raith Rovers for a further season before retiring from the game.
