Ian Stewart Gibson (born 30 March, 1943 in Newton Stewart) is a former Scottish professional footballer.

A Scottish schoolboy international, Gibson began his career at Accrington Stanley, making his league debut at the age of 15, before joining Bradofrd Park Avenue in 1960. He spent two years at Bradford before his form saw Middlesbrough pay £30,000 to sign him in March 1962. He joined the club as it was entering a steady decline which saw them fall into the third division. With Middlesbrough struggling Gibson was signed by Coventry City for £40,000 in 1966 and helped them win promotion to the first division during his four years at Highfield Road before being sold to Cardiff City in 1970 for £35,000.

He made his Cardiff debut on the opening day of the 1970-71 season in a 1-0 win over Leicester City and went on to provide numerous chances for the strikers he played alongside such as Brian Clark, John Toshack and Alan Warboys. After helping the side avoid relegation in his second year he was sold to Bournemouth in October 1972 for £100,000 but after only a few months a serious injury saw his professional career ended.
