Christopher Michael "Chris" Scott (born 3 May 1976) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League.

The identical twin brother of Brad Scott, Chris was picked by Brisbane in the AFL Draft and moved to Queensland whilst still at high school. He studied at Brisbane Boys College during his first years as an AFL player.

Scott made his AFL debut in 1994 with the Brisbane Bears, taking out the Norwich Rising Star award.

Scott became one of the AFL's toughest defensive players, using his strength to outmuscle opposing forwards. Along with his brother Brad, they were nicknamed the Kray brothers by some fans for their forceful and ruthless styles of play.

During Brisbane's three-peat era Scott was part of a powerful backline also containing Mal Michael, Chris L. Johnson and Justin Leppitsch. He caused controversy in round 1 of 2005, when along with Mal Michael he crashed into St Kilda's Nick Riewoldt as he was leaving the field with a broken collarbone. In the same game Scott also had several teeth knocked out after receiving a back-handed fist from opponent Aaron Hamill.

After participating in 2 premiership sides, Scott's later career has been plagued with injuries, but his occasional appearances show his experience and skill. Brisbane's round 22 match against the Geelong Cats on 1 September 2007 was his last after announcing his retirement. In 2008, Scott joined Fremantle as an assistant coach.
