Graeme Armstrong (born 23 June 1956) is a retired Scottish footballer. He was born in Edinburgh. He is currently manager of non-league side Newtongrange Star. By the time he retired as a player, Armstrong had made a Scottish-record 910 league appearances. When cup ties are taken into consideration, he played over 1000 first-team games.

Armstrong began his career in the non-leagues in Scotland, playing once as a trialist for Meadowbank Thistle, before being signed by Stirling Albion in 1975, making his league debut on 26 April 1975. Over the next 6 seasons "Louis" played in 204 games for the Yo-Yo's before being transferred to Berwick Rangers and then spending 10 years at Meadowbank Thistle. He then moved on to Stenhousemuir, where he later became manager and guided the side to promotion. He was sacked in April 2000, with Stenhousemuir battling relegation and joined Alloa Athletic as assistant-manager, also registering as a player, the following day. He played just once for Alloa, as a substitute in April 2001, at the age of 44 years,[1] before retiring. He was dismissed by Alloa in January 2003 as part of a drive to cut costs.[2]

In 2005, Armstrong was voted Stenhousemuir's all-time cult hero by viewers of BBC's Football Focus.[3]

In 2007, he guided Newtongrange to the Scottish Junior Football Association's East Region, South Division championship and promotion to the Premier League.
