John Angus McDonald Hansen (born 3 February 1950 in Sauchie, Clackmannanshire) is a Scottish former footballer who played for Partick Thistle.

The older brother of the more noted player Alan Hansen (who also began his career with Partick Thistle), John played as a right-back and was part of the team that defeated Celtic 4-1 in the 1971 Scottish League Cup Final. Between 1967 and 1978 he played 213 league games for Thistle, scoring 6 goals in the process.

Hansen won two caps for Scotland against Yugoslavia in a 2-2 draw in the Brazilian Independence Cup, and against Belgium in a 1-0 victory in a European Championship Qualifier. He had to end his career when he sustained a leg injury.

John is married to Sandra Ann and now lives in Surrey with his son Simon.
