Robert "Bob" McNab (born July 20, 1943) is an English former football player.

Born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, McNab started out at his local club, Huddersfield Town. He was signed by Bertie Mee for Arsenal in October 1966, and immediately won a place in the Arsenal side. He was the Gunners' first-choice left back for the next nine seasons, reaching the 1968 and 1969 League Cup finals (both of which Arsenal lost).

McNab made his debut for England in 1968 against Romania; McNab made four appearances in all for England, but never became a regular. However, he certainly had success domestically, winning the 1970 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and then the Double in 1971. McNab continued to play through much of the early 1970s for Arsenal, including the FA Cup final loss to Leeds United in 1972 and finishing second in the league a year later. However, the latter part of his career at Arsenal was blighted by injury and the emergence of Sammy Nelson meant McNab was no longer guaranteed a place in the first team.

McNab was released on a free transfer in the summer of 1975; he played first for Wolves before trying his luck in the NASL in the United States. He finished his playing career at Barnet, before moving to Canada to coach the Vancouver Whitecaps. McNab later emigrated to Los Angeles, California, where he still lives today, working as a property developer. He is the father of the actress Mercedes McNab.
