Johnny Doyle (11 May 1951 19 October 1981) was a Scottish footballer who played as a winger. Born in Uddingston, Lanarkshire, Doyle started his senior career with Ayr United, whom he joined from juvenile side Viewpark in 1970.

He made his first (and only) appearance for the Scottish national team in December 1975 in a 1 - 1 draw with Romania. Four months later, Doyle was transferred to Celtic. He won two league titles and one Scottish Cup during his time with the Glasgow club.

Doyle died in 1981, at the age of 30, when he was electrocuted while working on his new Kilmarnock home. He was commemorated in song by Irish band Charlie and The Bhoys.
