Robert “Bob” McLean (9 June 1902−1970) was a Scottish footballer, born in Glasgow, who played as a left half for Alloa Athletic and Doncaster Rovers.
After the end of WW1, he played for Alloa Athletic, winning the Scottish Second Division Championship with them in the 1921–22 season. He moved to Doncaster Rovers, then in the Midland League, from Alloa in 1922. He was a constant feature in the line up for his first four seasons, but then his presence tailed off. For a time he wore the skippers armband. In all competitions he made 196 appearances for Doncaster, scoring 4 times.
Following his last game for Doncaster on 16 September 1929 at Halifax, he moved to Waterford Celtic, a side in turmoil at the time and who wound up at the end of that season.
Some time later, McClean was appointed trainer and groundsman at Doncaster from the beginning of the 1943−44 season. He died in 1970.
