Scott Paul Carson (born 3 September 1985) is an English footballer who plays for Bursaspor as a goalkeeper.

He joined the Leeds United football academy in 2002, making his full first team debut for Leeds against Manchester United in February 2004. He made his first appearance for the England under-21 team in the same month and later set a record of 29 caps for the under-21 side.

In January 2005, he moved to Liverpool for a transfer fee of £750,000 and was called up for the England senior team summer tour to the United States later that year. He made nine appearances for Liverpool, including the UEFA Champions League quarter-final victory over Juventus in April 2005, before going on loan to Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Aston Villa to gain experience.

Following the 2007 UEFA Under-21 Championship, Carson made his full debut for the England senior team against Austria in November 2007. After his return to Liverpool from his loan spell at Aston Villa at the end of the 2007 08 season, he joined West Bromwich Albion for a £3.25 million fee in July 2008.
