Alexander "Sandy" Stewart (born 14 October 1965 in Bellshill) is a former Scottish footballer and football manager who is currently assistant manager to Owen Coyle at Bolton Wanderers.

Stewart's playing career consisted of spells with Hearts, Kilmarnock, Airdrieonians, Partick Thistle and Airdrie United. Stewart began his career with Eastwood Juveniles before joining Pollok in 1986 aged 21. Over a year later, he joined Hearts.

He was manager of Scottish First Division club Airdrie United between 2002 and 2006, until being sacked on 13 November 2006.

On 9 February 2007, Stewart became assistant manager to Owen Coyle at St. Johnstone, replacing Montrose-bound Jim Weir. On 22 November 2007, Stewart became caretaker-manager of St. Johnstone when Coyle left to become the new manager of English club Burnley. Three days later, in Stewart's first - and only - game in charge, St. Johnstone won the Challenge Cup, their first cup win since the Scottish Consolation Cup of 1911, with a 3-2 victory over Dunfermline Athletic. He opted to follow Coyle to Lancashire on 27 November, working at Burnley for just over two years before moving to his current role at Bolton.
