Wilson Wood (born January 25, 1943 in Whitburn) is a Scottish former footballer who played primarily as a midfielder.
A former lab assistant with the National Coal Board, Wood started his professional career with Newcastle United whom he joined from Shotts Bon Accord aged 17. He spent only one year on Tyneside and left the club without making an appearance, returning to Scotland to join Rangers. He spent three seasons at Ibrox, where he won his only senior medal as a member of Rangers victorious 1964-65 League Cup side. Wood moved to Dundee United in 1967 and he featured regularly during his three years at Tannadice. However in 1970 a contract dispute with Terrors manager Jerry Kerr led to his departure to boyhood favourites Hearts, in exchange for Tommy Traynor. He spent three injury-plagued years with the Jambos before a final two years with Raith Rovers. His transfer to the Kirkcaldy side was the subject of controversy, with Hamilton Accies also claiming to have signed him.
Since his retirement Wood has worked as a physiotherapist.
