Colin Nish (born 7 March 1981 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional association football player who plays for Scottish Premier League club Hibernian.

Nish was a fan of his local side Hibernian as a child, but he started his career with Dunfermline, where he made his debut in the 1998–99 season. He had two subsequent loan spells with Alloa[2] and one at Clyde.

Nish joined Kilmarnock in 2003 after being released by Dunfermline.[3] He initially signed a six month deal which ran until Christmas 2003, at which point he agreed a new 18 month contract.[4] He initially struggled at Kilmarnock where fans were often critical of him after a poor start. This included missing an open goal in a league match against Hearts from six yards out with the goalkeeper Craig Gordon stranded. After the departure of Kris Boyd, however, he began to find form for the club.

In October 2007 he rejected Kilmarnock's offer of a new contract which meant that he was able to talk to other clubs from January 2008 with a view to a Bosman transfer in the summer. Nish signed a pre-contract with boyhood heroes Hibernian and the next day the clubs agreed a deal to immediately transfer Nish.[5] He made his debut for Hibs on 9 February 2008 in a 1–1 draw away to Dundee United.[6] He then scored his first goal for Hibs ten minutes into his home debut against Gretna.[7]
