Charles Graham Adam (born 10 December 1985) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Stoke City and the Scotland national team.

Adam was part of the Dundee youth set up between 1999 and 2003 before signing a youth contract with Alex McLeish's Rangers when he turned 17 and spent much of his early senior career on loan to Ross County and St Mirren. While on loan to St Mirren during the 2005–06 season, Adam was part of the team that won both the Scottish Challenge Cup and First Division, playing in over thirty matches for the "Saints". Upon returning to Rangers at the end of the 2006 season, he became a regular under managers Paul Le Guen and Walter Smith. Adam was also part of the Rangers team that reached the 2008 UEFA Cup Final.

After falling out of favour at Rangers during 2008–09, Adam was loaned out to English Championship side Blackpool. The loan was made permanent at the start of the 2009–10 season, and Adam became an integral part of the Blackpool side, captaining the team to a play-off victory over Cardiff City which resulted in their promotion to the Premier League. Adam shone in his first season in the Premier League, his performances being recognised with a nomination for the PFA Players' Player of the Year in April 2011. However, Blackpool were relegated and consequently he transferred to Liverpool in July 2011. After one season at Anfield Adam joined Stoke City in August 2012 for a fee of £4 million.

He has played at under-21, B and full international levels for Scotland.
