John McNamee (born 11 June 1941) is a Scottish former

professional football player who played in more than 50 league games as a defender for Hibernian, Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers.

McNamee began his senior career with Celtic and played in the 1963 Scottish Cup Final defeat by Rangers. He was then signed by Jock Stein to play for Hibernian in April 1964, but Stein himself moved in the opposite direction early in the next year. McNamee signed for Newcastle United in December 1966, and was part of the team that won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1969.

After leaving Newcastle in 1971, McNamee played for Blackburn Rovers, Hartlepool United, Lancaster City and Workington before retiring in 1976.
