Peter Rosenkrands Løvenkrands (born 29 January 1980) is a Danish footballer who plays for Newcastle United in the Premier League, and for the Danish national team. He is a striker who can also play as a left winger and is known for his pace.

Løvenkrands began his career in Denmark, winning the 1999 Danish Cup with Akademisk Boldklub. He then moved to Scottish side Rangers where he enjoyed six years of success, winning two Scottish Premier League championships and the 2002 Scottish Cup. He moved to play for German team Schalke 04, but eventually fell out of favour during his last season there, and transferred to Premier League side Newcastle United in the winter 2008.

He won the 1998 Danish under-19 Player of the Year award. He has since gone on to play 21 times and score a single goal for the Danish national team, and he represented Denmark at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2004 tournaments.
