Kenny Jackett (born 5 January 1962 in Watford) is a former Wales international football player, who has since moved into management. He is the current manager of Millwall, the longest serving manager in the Football League Championship and eleventh longest serving manager in England.

A skilful player, equally at home in defence or midfield, Jackett was capped 31 times for Wales, for whom he was eligible through his Welsh-born father. He spent his entire playing career at Watford, before his career was ended by injury. He moved onto the coaching staff, and had a spell as manager in the 1996-97 season. Between 2004 and 2007 he was manager of Swansea City. He took over as manager of Millwall in November 2007, leading them to two successive League One play-off finals, and eventual promotion to The Championship.

His father Frank was also a professional footballer.
