Rúrik Gíslason (born 25 February 1988) is an Icelandic footballer who plays as a midfielder for Danish club OB.

Gíslason signed for Charlton Athletic F.C. at the end of August 2005, but failed to make an appearance for Charlton's first team, having played for HK Kópavogur in his youth.

Rurik also played for RSC Anderlecht, the then champions of Belgium for a year, but did not settle so he returned to HK Kópavogur. This was before his move to Charlton.

In 2011, Gíslason was chosen as part of the squad to represent Iceland at the European Under-21 Championships in Denmark. The striker was named on the bench for the opening game against Belarus.
