Willie McCartney (date of birth unknown — 24 January 1948) was a Scottish association football referee and manager. He managed both of the Edinburgh derby rivals, Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian.

The Sunday Herald newspaper listed McCartney as #22 in their 2003 list of the 50 greatest Scottish football managers, citing his role in the development of Hibs' Famous Five forward line. The newspaper also said that McCartney "was intelligent, jovial and had great presence", and described his ultimate failure to win a major trophy as "unthinkably cruel".
