Robert William Fleck (born 11 August 1965) is a former professional footballer. He was a striker who began his career with Rangers.
Despite not being a first team regular, he scored many important goals for the club under Graeme Souness. In 1987, Fleck was transferred for ú580,000 to Norwich City. He scored 66 goals in 181 appearances in his first spell with the club, earning a call-up to the Scotland Squad winning 4 caps, including 2 caps at the 1990 World Cup. 'Flecky' attained hero status among Norwich supporters and was voted Norwich City player of the year in 1992 at the end of the final season of his first spell at Carrow Road.
He moved on to Chelsea for a fee of ú2,100,000 - Norwich's club record for the sale of a player at the time - but returned to Norwich City in 1995 after scoring only four goals in 48 appearances. His performances were not as consistent as in the past, however, and he moved to Reading towards the end of the 1997-98 season, where injury forced him to retire.
After a spell with Gorleston where he won the Norfolk Senior Cup in 2001, he joined Diss Town who play in the Ridgeons League, as manager in the summer of 2002. He won the Norfolk Senior Cup again in 2003 and 2005. A poor run of form during 2006 saw him sacked on 18th October 2006.
Fleck is fourth in the list of Norwich City FC all-time goalscorers, behind Johnny Gavin, Terry Allcock and Iwan Roberts.
Fleck's nephew John is currently a midfielder in the Rangers Under 19 side.
