William Fulton Kivlichan (11 March 1886 – 5 April 1937) born in Galashiels in the Scottish borders, was a Scottish footballer. He played for both of the Old Firm rival clubs Rangers and Celtic in the early 1900s.

Kivlichan signed for Rangers in 1905 from Glasgow University and played 29 games in two years. He transferred to Celtic in 1907 and represented the Scottish League XI three times while a Celtic player.

During the First World War, Kivlichan served as a lieutenant in the Royal Army Medical Corps, attached to the King's Own African Rifles. After he qualified in medicine from the University of Glasgow, Kivlichan became the Celtic team doctor. He was by the side of John Thomson as the young Celtic goalkeeper died from an injury sustained in an Old Firm match on 5 September 1931.

He died on 5 April 1937 of heart disease at the age of 51.
