Kevin Muscat (born 7 August 1973 in Crawley, England) is an Australian footballer who currently plays for Victorian State League Division 1 side Sunshine George Cross and is assistant coach of Melbourne Victory. Muscat earned a reputation as a "hard man", with his aggression and passion occasionally boiling over into some violent incidents.

After beginning his professional career in the Australian National Soccer League with Sunshine George Cross in 1989, Muscat forged a successful, albeit controversial career in the United Kingdom with Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Rangers and Millwall. He returned to Australia in 2005 to captain Melbourne Victory in the inaugural season of the A-league.

In February 2011, Muscat announced his intention to retire from professional football after the 2011 AFC Champions League, citing his growing frustration at his inability to keep pace with the game. In June 2011 Muscat was reconfirmed as assistant coach at Melbourne Victory. In July 2011 Muscat joined his former club Sunshine George Cross for the club for the remainder of the 2011 Victorian State League Division 1 season.

During his international career, Muscat represented the Australia U-20 side at the 1991 FIFA World Youth Championship in Portugal and the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship in Australia. He represented the Australia U-23 side at the 1996 Summer Olympics. After making his full international debut for Australia in September 1994 against Kuwait, Muscat represented the national side at the 1997 FIFA Confederations Cup, 2000 OFC Nations Cup, 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup.
