Steve Cowan (born 17 February 1963 in Paisley) is a Scottish former professional association football player.

Cowan began his career with St. Mirren, but followed Alex Ferguson to Aberdeen in 1980. Cowan was a fringe player with Aberdeen for five seasons. He initially had a more productive stint with Hibs, scoring three hat-tricks and 19 league goals in all during the 1985 - 86 season.

Cowan only scored four league goals in the following season, however, and transferred to Motherwell. He then had a loan spell at Albion Rovers before moving to Irish football with Portadown. Cowan was very productive at Portadown, scoring 66 league goals in 87 games, and winning three major honours including the Irish League in 1990 and 1991 as well as the Irish Cup in 1991 as Portadown completed a domestic double. He left Portadown in 1993, and had short stints with Linlithgow Rose, Ballymena United and Cliftonville before ending his playing career after the 1993 - 94 season.

Cowan now works as a match analyst for BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound programme.
