Brian Alderson (5 May 1950 – 23 April 1997) was a Scottish footballer. He predominantly played as a winger, but was also able to play as a striker.

Alderson, who was born in Dundee, began his career with local youth side Lochee Harp before becoming a professional with Coventry City. He made his league debut against Chelsea on 20 September 1970. Alderson spent five years at Highfield Road, twice finishing as Coventry's top goalscorer, before moving to Leicester City in the summer of 1975. He spent three years with Leicester, although he was no longer a regular during his final season, 1977-78, due to injury.

In 1978 Noel Cantwell, who had managed Alderson during his spell at Coventry, invited him to play for the newly formed New England Tea Men of the North American Soccer League. Alderson spent two years at the club before concluding his outdoor career with a two-year spell at the Atlanta Chiefs. He then finished his career playing indoor football for the New Jersey Rockets.
