Anthony "Tony" Green (born 13 October 1946 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former professional footballer.
Green was a Newcastle United player from 1971 to 1973. He was signed from Blackpool for ú150,000, in a part-exchange deal involving Keith Dyson.
Tragically his career ended at the age of 26 when he suffered a cartilage injury, and was never to play professionally again.
With only 35 games and three goals to his Newcastle career, the Geordie supporters were left wondering what he could have achieved.
He made six appearances for Scotland between 1971 and 1972.
After his football career ended Green became a maths teacher in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, a role he continues to fulfill.
