Alexander Grimmond "Sandy" Davie, (born 10 June 1945 in Dundee) is a retired Scottish footballer who played as goalkeeper. Davie spent most of his career with Dundee United and represented Scotland at Under-23 level and New Zealand at senior level.

In 1967, Ted Bates tried to sign Davie for £15,000 but the offer was rejected. He eventually joined Southampton in May 1970 (for a fee of £12,500) as cover for Eric Martin, but only made one appearance for the Saints on 20 February 1970 in a 5 1 defeat at Manchester United. Four of Manchester United's goals were scored by Alan Gowling. He returned to his home town club in May 1972 where he enjoyed several good seasons before emigrating to New Zealand.

Davie played for the All Whites, making his debut in a 3 0 win over Fiji on 1 July 1979 and ended his international playing career with 11 A-international caps to his credit. He was involved at various levels with the New Zealand ladies' football team - the Football Ferns - until April 2003. Davie was also manager at North Shore United shortly after emigrating.
