John C "Jock" Collier (February 1, 1897 in Dysart, Scotland – 1940 in Kingston upon Hull, England) was a Scottish footballer and manager.


Collier played for Inverkeithing Juniors and had trials for the Scottish Junior international team. He signed for Raith Rovers and eventually signed for Hull City in 1920. He captained Hull for a couple of seasons, before moving to Queens Park Rangers in 1926.[1]

He joined York City as player-manager, but he broke an ankle and retired from playing. He managed the club as they went into The Football League, but after their first season in the league he left he club to become a publican.[1]

He was re-appointed as manager in May 1933. He announced his retirement from football in March 1937 and went into a business partnership with one of his brothers in Scotland. He died in Hull at the age of 41 in 1940.[1]
