Graham Alexander (born 10 October 1971) is a former professional footballer. He is the manager of League One club Scunthorpe United.

For most of his career, Coventry-born Alexander played as a specialist at right back, but was also deployed in defensive midfield, as he did early on in his career with Scunthorpe. He is the fourth oldest player to score in Premier League history. He was also a penalty kick specialist. On 16 April 2011, in Burnley's win over Swansea City in a Championship match, Alexander became only the second outfield player in English football history to have made 1,000 professional appearances, after Tony Ford. He is fifth on the list of footballers in England and Scotland by number of league appearances.

Alexander was appointed manager of Fleetwood Town in December 2012. He won the 2013–14 League Two playoffs and promotion to League One, but was sacked by Fleetwood in September 2015. In March 2016, he was appointed the manager of Scunthorpe United.
