Scott Leitch (born 6 October 1969) is a Scottish former professional footballer and former manager of Ross County. He is current assistant manager to Mark McGhee at Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen F.C..

Leitch began his career in 1989 at Shettleston Juniors F.C. before turning professional with Dunfermline Athletic in April 1990. After three years at East End Park, he joined Hearts where he remained for another three years before moving to England with Swindon Town in a £15,000 transfer. Leitch returned to Scotland in 2000 with Motherwell where he became an integral part of their midfield. He played 128 league games, scoring 1 goal.

A succession of injury problems prompted Leitch to quit football in 2006 and turn to management with Ross County, where he was officially appointed on 18 April 2006. He guided the Staggies to their first national trophy in November 2006, when they won the Scottish Challenge Cup against Clyde in Perth, however the club were also relegated from the Scottish First Division the same season.

On April 30, 2007, Leitch resigned as manager of Ross County after the club's relegation from the First Division. He has since become Motherwell's new assistant manager.[1]

On June 12, 2009 Leitch was confirmed as the new assistant manager of Aberdeen F.C.[2].
