John McGinlay (born 8 April 1964) is a Scottish former footballer who is best known for his spell at Bolton Wanderers in the mid to late 1990s. McGinlay is a product of the Scottish Highland Football League and a Scottish International. McGinlay's first senior game was as a 16 year old for his home town club Fort William FC in a Highland League game in August 1980 against Elgin City FC, a Highland League club he was to join some 6 years later on his return to the Highland Football League from Yeovil Town FC, an English Football Conference Club at that time.

In April 1997, McGinlay scored the last goals at Bolton Wanderers' old stadium Burnden Park, prior to the move to the new Reebok Stadium.

He later had short spells with Oldham Athletic and American team Cincinnati Riverhawks before moving into management with non-league sides Ilkeston Town and Gresley Rovers.
