Andrew Roger Henderson (born 3 February 1980 in Kent, England) is a Scottish rugby union footballer who currently plays for GHA. Henderson, who plays at Centre (rugby union) has been capped 53 times and scored 8 tries for Scotland.

He was educated at Lenzie primary school and Lenzie Academy.[2] Henderson played rugby union for West of Scotland at stand off as a youngster before moving to Glasgow Hawks, then Glasgow Warriors where he was preferred at centre.

Playing as a centre, apart from one outing on the wing (vs Wales 2004), he made his debut in the blue of Scotland in 2001 as a second-half replacement against Ireland. The Scots won 32–10 with Henderson scoring the fourth try. His final game for Scotland was in 2008.

In March 2009, Henderson joined Montauban in France on a 3-year contract.[3] Due to financial difficulties and relegation from the Top 14 at Montauban, he was released at the end of 2010 season. He returned to Glasgow and to play with GHA RFC in the National League, the 2nd tier of club rugby.

He is often called "Muffles" because of his usually silent nature
