John O'Neill (born 3 January 1974 in Glasgow) is a Scottish football midfielder, playing for Auchinleck Talbot.

O'Neill started his career with amateur club Queens Park, before signing for Celtic in 1994. In his career he had two spells of playing for Dumfries club Queen of the South. While he was with Queens, O'Neill won the 2001 - 02 Scottish Second Division and he was the club's top scorer and won the divisional player of the year title. O'Neill scored in the 2002 Scottish Challenge Cup Final victory against Brechin City. O'Neill also made a substitute appearance for Queens in the 2008 Scottish Cup Final against Rangers, which turned out to be his last appearance for the club. He was also a penalty kick specialist at Queens, scoring 27 goals from 29 attempts. In total he scored 70 goals for Queens in competitive first team fixtures.

In the summer of 2008 O'Neill signed for Stirling Albion as a player and was also appointed assistant manager.

After winning only three league games in the 2010 - 11 season, however, O'Neill was sacked in January 2011.
