Andrew Steven Jackson (born 9 January 1988) is a Scottish-born Irish association football player, currently playing for St. Johnstone after progressing through the club's youth ranks.

Jackson made his league debut on 14 August 2004, in St. Johnstone's 3–1 defeat to Queen of the South at McDiarmid Park.[1] During the 2005–06 season, Jackson was loaned out to Cowdenbeath, with whom he scored four goals in thirteen league appearances, and Forfar Athletic, scoring five goals in thirteen appearances.

Jackson scored his first senior goal for St. Johnstone on 5 September 2007 in their 2–0 victory over Ross County in the Scottish Challenge Cup.[2] Jackson was awarded the Young Player of the Month for January 2008 after scoring in three consecutive games (against Raith Rovers, Dunfermline Athletic and Stirling Albion).[3]

Jackson missed most of the 2008–09 season with an achilles injury as St Johnstone won the First Division. In July 2009 he was taken to hospital suffering from a bowel complaint that had first troubled him in April 2008, and also hindered his fitness in 2008–09.[4]

He has represented the Republic of Ireland at under–18, under–19 and under–21 level. He made his under–21 debut against Austria on 19 August 2008, playing for 63 minutes in a 1–1 draw.[5]
