Luke John Rodgers (born 1 January 1982 in Birmingham, West Midlands) is an English professional football striker who plays for New York Red Bulls in Major League Soccer.

He played in England's Football League, starting at Shrewsbury Town in 1999. Rodgers spent six years with the Shropshire side and made over 200 appearances as they were relegated and then promoted back to the Football League. In the summer of 2005 he moved to Crewe Alexandra, where he stayed until a January 2007 switch to Port Vale. Two years later he moved on to Yeovil Town following a short loan spell. His permanent spell at Yeovil was brief, he soon transferred to Notts County in summer 2009, who he helped fire to promotion in his first season. He completed a move to Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls in January 2011.

Off the pitch he has courted controversy as a "bad boy" figure, coming into conflict with managers, opposition players, and the general public.
