Rui Komatsu (小松 塁 Komatsu Rui, born August 29, 1983 in Kōchi) is a Japanese footballer who plays for Giravanz Kitakyushu in the J. League Division 2 as a striker.


Komatsu was chosen as one of the Designated Players for Development by J. League and JFA in 2005 when he was a student of Kwansei Gakuin University. Because of this status, he was able to register as a Cerezo Osaka player while he was still eligible to play for his university club. However, he did not play any official match for Cerezo.

After graduating from university in 2006, he officially signed with Cerezo. On 12 August 2006, he made his J. League debut in a 1–0 loss against Omiya Ardija. Two month later, he loned out to Kyu-League side V-Varen Nagasaki.

He returned to Cerezo for the 2007 season and his first goal for the club in a 3-1 win against Mito HollyHock, on May 23. During the 2007 season, he managed to form a strike partnership with fellow striker Tatsuya Furuhashi, as the pair scored a total of 30 goals between them.
