Alexander William “Alex” Menzies (born 25 November 1882) was a Scottish association footballer who played as a forward for Hearts and Manchester United in the 1900s.

Born in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire, Menzies began his football career with Blantyre Victoria in 1901. He signed for Hearts in December 1902, making two appearances for the club before being sent on loan to Motherwell. He signed for Arthurlie in August 1904, but returned to Hearts after just one season. Eighteen months later, in November 1906, Menzies was sold to Manchester United. He played for Manchester United until the end of the 1906–07 season, making just 25 appearances and scoring four goals, before being sold to Luton Town.

Menzies made just one appearance for Scotland, a 2–1 win over England in April 1906.
