Robert "Bobby" Evans (16 July 1927 — 1 September 2001) was a Scottish football player and manager, most notable for his time with Celtic .

Evans joined Celtic during 1944 from junior side St.Anthony's. He started out his Celtic career as a forward, but it wasn't until manager Jimmy McGrory moved him back to right-half that Evans became a Celtic great. Unmistakable with his ginger hair , he was probably the first to wear his shirt out of his shorts, his trademark . His stamina, determination and sheer will-to-win were regarded by many as exceptional.
