Scott Paul Green (born 15 January 1970 in Walsall) is a retired English football defender. He is currently running the Yeovil Town Centre of Excellence.

As a schoolboy, Green spent time at Stoke, West Brom and Walsall before Derby County took him on trial as a centre-forward. He ultimately failed to play a single game for Derby but would score 24 goals in 16 games for Finnish club Euran Pallo. In 1990, Green signed for Bolton Wanderers for £50,000, making his début against Shrewsbury Town. He would help Wanderers reach the play-offs that season, and made an appearance in the 1991 play-off final against Tranmere. In 1994, Green switched to full-back helping Bolton achieve promotion and played in the 1995 Football League Cup Final.

Green joined Wigan Athletic for £300,000 in June 1997, scoring on his début in a 5-2 win over Wycombe Wanderers on the opening day of the 1997/98 season. Now a regular fixture at right-back, he was part of the side that would win the Autowindscreen Shield at Wembley in 1999. A virtual ever present in the first half of Wigan's Second Division Championship winning season, he would be allowed to leave the club for Wrexham in 2003.
