}}Robert "Bobby" Clark (born September 26, 1945 in Glasgowmarker) is a former Scottishmarker football goalkeeper.

Clark started his career with Queen's Park F.C. and also played for Aberdeen F.C., with whom he won the 1970 Scottish Cup, the 1976 League Cup and the 1980 Premier League Championship. He earned 17 caps for the Scotland national football team, and was Scotland's backup goalkeeper at the 1978 FIFA World Cup.

Since 2001, he has been the head coach of the University of Notre Damemarker men's soccer team, having previously coached Dartmouth Collegemarker (1985-93), the New Zealand national soccer team (1994-96), and Stanford Universitymarker (1996-2000).

Clark was named first team all-star goalkeeper in the 1967 United Soccer Association playing for the Washington Whips. He also spent the summer of 1976 in the NASL, playing for the San Antonio Thunder.

Clark is a fan of Scottish First Division side Clyde. He came out of retirement in 1983 to help Clyde when they had a goalkeeping injury crisis. His father, Tom, was once the chairman of Clyde.

His son Jamie has played in Major League Soccer. His son Tommy is the founder and executive director of the non-profit organisation Grassroot Soccer.

Clark held the British top-flight record for not conceding a goal during league games (at 1,155 minutes) until Edwin van der Sar overtook him on Sunday 8th February 2009.
