Paul Thomas McDonald (born 20 April 1968 in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire) is a Scottish former football defender.

After playing for a local boy's club in his hometown McDonald was spotted by Hamilton Academical and signed for the club in June 1986. McDonald, who usually featured on the left wing played at the club during a period of comparative success, picking up winners medals for the First Division in 1987 88 and the B & Q Cup in 1992 and 1993. After a long spell at the Accies he was signed by Southampton for £75,000 in the summer of 1993. McDonald failed to make an impact at The Dell, although a successful loan spell at Burnley prompted Brighton & Hove Albion to pay £25,000 for his services in 1996. He left the club the following year and returned to Scottish football, with spells at Dunfermline Athletic, Partick Thistle and Greenock Morton before returning to Hamilton for a final two season run in 2001.

After this spell with the Accies McDonald, who had also been serving the club as Youth Development Manager from 2002, retired from playing and became the SFA community coach at Kilmarnock.
