Scott Booth (born 16 December 1971 in Aberdeen) is a former Scottish football player.

Booth started his career at his hometown club of Aberdeen where he played up front for about nine years. Seen as a favourite by the Aberdeen fans, Booth was part of the Aberdeen side that came so close to winning the League title on the final day of the Scottish Premier League 1990/1991 season.

He played in every game of Aberdeen's 1995 Scottish Football League Cup campaign until an injury ruled him out of the final, in which Aberdeen beat Dundee 2-0. Less than two years later he was leaving Pittodrie for a surprise move to Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

The success of fellow Scot Paul Lambert was perhaps one of the reasons behind the surprise move. Nevertheless he never really got a look-in with the European Champions even though he got a brief taste of Champions League football. He is also notable of being the first Scot to win the Intercontinental Cup.

Booth then signed for FC Twente in the Netherlands. He was to become a favourite in the Netherlands, playing there for the next 4 years and picking up a winner's medal when Twente won the KNVB Cup after a penalty shoot-out. He returned 'home' to Aberdeen in 2003.

Booth was top scorer in 2003/2004 but was hit by injury. When he was released in 2004, many Dons fans were angry at manager Steve Paterson and said that they would pay for Booth to stay at the club.

Booth was also member of Scotland's Euro 1996 and 1998 World Cup Squad. He previously worked as a match co-commentator and pundit for Setanta Sports until its UK broadcasting operation went into administration. Booth now freelances for STV as a match co-commentator for UEFA Champions League matches.
