Keith William Robertson (born 5 December 1954 in Hawick, Scotland) is a former Scottish rugby union player. He played for Scotland forty four times between 1978 and 1989.[1] He played at both wing and centre, the latter twenty times out of his forty four caps.[1]

Richard Bath writes of him that:

Keith Robertson never possessed the acceleration which usually marks out the great wings. Yet what he lacked in out-and-out pace he more than made up for in guile and sheer footballing ability. An accomplished Sevens player, the willowy Melrose wing - he was a shade under 11 stone - was also a prolific try scorer at every level except international. During his Scotland career which spanned eleven years, Robertson only managed to score eight tries."[1]

Keith Robertson was a major part of Scotland's Grand Slam in 1984.[1]

He was never selected for the British Lions.[1]

After retiring he became involved in Borders rugby, and was one of the major Scottish advocates of professionalism in rugby union.[1]

He occasionally appears on STV's rugby programme.
