Richard Samuel Gibson (born February 1889 in Holborn, London; deceased) was an English professional footballer who played as a winger. He made 120 appearances and scored 19 goals in all competitions for Birmingham over a ten year career, and helped them to the championship of the Football League Second Division in 1920–21. He then moved to First Division Manchester United where he made 12 appearances without scoring; they were relegated that season. Gibson was credited with recommending his former Sultan F.C. team-mate Percy Barton to Birmingham.
