David "Davie" Alexander Provan (born 8 May 1956) is a Scottish former footballer. During his career he played for Kilmarnock and Celtic. While playing for Celtic Provan won four Scottish Premier League medals, two Scottish Cup and one League Cup. Provan retired in 1987 after he began to suffer from ME.

He earned ten caps and scored one goal for the Scotland national football team and was a non-playing member of their 1982 World Cup squad. Provan also represented the Scottish League. He grew up supporting Rangers and his team mates would joke about this while he played for Celtic.

Since his retirement as a player, Provan has worked in the media as a pundit and co-commentator for Sky Sports. Since the 2012–13 season, he has been one of the main co-commentators on Sky's coverage of the Premier League, Champions League and Scottish Professional Football League. Provan was also a columnist for several years for the Scottish edition of the now defunct News of the World and now currently writes for its sister paper, The Sun.
