James Frederick "Jimmy" McStay (12 September 1893 – 25 June 1952) was a Scottish football player and manager. He spent most of his career at Celtic, and was a captain and manager for the club. He took over the club captaincy from his brother, Willie McStay, in 1929.

McStay managed the club between 9 February 1940, and 23 July 1945. However, this coincided with the suspension of the Scottish Cup and Scottish Football League during wartime, meanining he never had the opportunity to manage the club in competition. He also managed Alloa Athletic and Hamilton Academical.

McStay's great-nephews, Paul and Willie, also played for Celtic in the 1980s and 1990s.
