Steven Saunders (born 23 February 1991 in Rutherglen, Scotland) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays for Scottish Premier League side Motherwell as a centre back or right back.

Saunders made his debut for Motherwell as a substitute in a Scottish Premier League match against Aberdeen on 29 November 2008. After the match, manager Mark McGhee said that he was "delighted" with Saunders' performance. Saunders then started the following two games against Kilmarnock and Hamilton Academical, playing at right back, and he was again praised by McGhee for his performance in the first of those games.

In the 2009 10 season, under new manager Jim Gannon, Saunders has established himself as a regular starter in his preferred position of centre back. He scored his first goal for the club on Saturday 24 April 2010 against Hearts. Under Gannon's successor, Craig Brown, Saunders has been a regular starter at right back, showing that he is comfortable playing at centre back and right back.

On 10 August 2011, whilst playing for the Scotland Under 21's, Saunders suffered an achilles tendon injury that is likely to rule him out for the rest of the 2011-12 season.
