David "Dave" Bruce Smith (born 14 November 1943 in Aberdeen) is a former professional football player and manager.

Primarily a left sided midfielder, Smith started his playing career for Aberdeen and moved to Rangers in August 1966 for a fee of £50,000. During his time at Ibrox he made 303 appearances winning the Scottish League Cup in 1971, the Scottish Cup in 1973 and most notably the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1972. That year he was voted the Scottish Football Writers' Association's Player of the year. During his time at Rangers he collected two Scottish caps.

Smith left Ibrox in November 1974 for Arbroath, where he took-up a player-coach role. He went on to become a player-manager at Berwick Rangers in 1976 and while there he transformed the clubs fortunes, guiding them to the Scottish Second Division championship in 1979. He left Berwick in 1980 and subsequently managed Huntly, Gala Fairydean and Whitehill Welfare.

Smith spent one close season during his career playing for the Seattle Sounders and the Los Angeles Aztecs in the NASL and is also known to have played in South Africa. His brother Doug was also a professional footballer, who spent his entire career with Dundee United.
