Jörg Albertz (born 29 January 1971) is a German former professional footballer who played as a midfielder. Between 1996 and 1998, he played three international games for the Germany national team.

As both a youth player and apprentice, Albertz played for PSV Mönchengladbach and Borussia Mönchengladbach. His first professional contract signed in 1990 for Fortuna Düsseldorf; where he earned himself the nickname “The Hammer” for his powerful long range shots. When the team from the Rhineland were relegated to the second tier of the Bundesliga, Albertz moved to Hamburg where he soon became the public hero of the team. Two seasons later he became the club captain.

In 1996, Albertz signed for Rangers for £4m, and he helped them to their ninth Scottish league championship title in a row and scored a famous free-kick against rivals Celtic in January 1997. Albertz became a huge favourite with the Rangers fans, but after the departure of manager Walter Smith in June 1998, he was frequently left out of the starting line-up by the incoming Dick Advocaat. Despite this, he also won league championship medals in 1999 and 2000.

He returned to Hamburg in 2001. Despite the hype of his return, he was unable to live up to the hopes that people had on his shoulders; and before the beginning of season 2002–03 he transferred to Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. He initially gained success with them when he won the 2003 league title. Unfortunately in 2003 the Chinese Football Association would revoke the league title; after it discovered the Shenhua General manager Lou Shifang had bribed officials; to give favourable decisions to Shenhua in games that season.
