Omar Palma is an Argentine football midfielder. He was born on April 12, 1958, in the city of Campo Largo in the Chaco Province of Argentina. He played most of his career for Rosario Central in Argentina. He was the top scorer of the 1987-1988 season with 20 goals in 38 games for Central's championship winning campaign.

Palma made his debut with Rosario Central in 1979, he went on to win two titles with the club, the Nacional in 1980 and the 1986-1987 championship.

After his goalscoring feats of the 86-87 season he was signed by Argentine giants River Plate, but his two seasons with the club were far from successful but he did play in both legs of the Copa Interamericana 1987, which River won 3-0.
