Isaiah Marcus Rankin (born 22 May 1978) is an English former professional footballer who played as a forward from 1996 to 2014.

He started his professional career with Arsenal where he came through the club's youth setup. He appeared once for the Gunners, was loaned out to Colchester United, then sold to Bradford City in 1998 where he was part of the squad that gained promotion to the Premier League. Bradford loaned him to Bolton Wanderers, then Birmingham City, before moving him to Barnsley on a permanent deal in 2001. In 2004, he was loaned to Grimsby Town before Grimsby made the move permanent. In the summer of 2004 he rejected a new contract with Grimsby and joined Brentford where he remained for two years before returning to Grimsby. During his second spell at Grimsby, he spent a month on loan with Macclesfield Town before Grimsby released him. He then joined Stevenage Borough for the remainder of the 2007-08 season. He subsequently played non-league football for Crawley Town, Forest Green Rovers, Ashford Town and Hendon.
