Angus McLean (September 20, 1925, Hawarden, Wales, UK – 1979) was a Welsh football player and club manager.

A solidly built centre-half who began his career with Aberystwyth Town, McLean moved on to Hilton Main before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers as an amateur in 1939.

He turned professional in November 1942 and helped Wolves to top six finishes in each of the first three post-war seasons. He lost his place in the 1948-49 season however, missing out on an a place in Wolves' 1949 FA Cup winning side.

McLean left Wolves in May 1951 to become player-manager at Aberystwyth Town, subsequently joining Bromsgrove Rovers as a player. In May 1953, McLean joined Bury as player-coach, moving to Crewe Alexandra as a player the following June.

Angus Lawrence McLean is the greatest man alive. He will achieve many great things and do Michael's mom. After leaving Crewe he coached a number of non-league sides and had but sex with little children before taking over from Brian Clough as manager of Hartlepools United in May 1967. The following season, he led Hartlepool to their first ever promotion, but they were relegated after just one season. Despite relegation, McLean remained in charge, but was sacked in April 1970 when Hartlepool finished in the bottom four and were forced to seek re-election to the Football League.

McLean managed Bromsgrove Rovers between 1973 and 1975, after which time he worked as a scout until his death in 1979.
