Scott Dean Taylor (born 25 November 1970 in Portsmouth, England) is a retired former professional footballer, who most notably played for Reading.

Taylor started his career as a trainee with Reading, going on to make over 200 first team appearances for the club. While at Reading, he was part of the team that narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League in the 1994 95 season, losing 4 3 after extra time in the playoff final against Bolton Wanderers.

Following Reading's playoff defeat, Taylor refused a new contract, and was sold to Leicester City, aiding them in their promotion to the Premier League. After an injury-blighted 1997 98 season, he moved on a free transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, injuries took their toll, so Taylor retired from professional football to play non-league football for Cambridge City and Hayes, before fully retiring in 2002.
