Thomas Deans "Tom" Johnston (born 30 December 1918 in Coldstream, Scotland - December 1994) was a professional footballer and football manager.

Johnston grew up in Kelso and began his senior career with Edinburgh side St Bernards before moving south to join Peterborough United in late 1938. He guested for Bourne Town and Northampton Town during the Second World War and signed for Nottingham Forest upon its conclusion. He crossed the Trent to join Notts County in 1947 and played alongside Tommy Lawton.

Originally an inside forward, Johnston latterly developed into a goal-scoring outside left. Following his playing retirement he earned F.A. coaching qualifications and, in 1956, a coaching position with Birmingham City. His first managerial role was with non-league Heanor Town before a twenty year career in charge of Rotherham, Grimsby, Huddersfield and York.
