KEITH RUTTER..PETCHEY 21:33 - Oct 1 with 1531 viewsgazza1

He was the first No5 I remember as a young lad at the Rangers...a strong hard man at Centre Back as they were known in those days. Big and strong, hard as nails but limited in football terms....not sure how good he would have been in these days but decent CB back then. Respect.

As for the other lad being inducted on Saturday - George Petchey.....a bit before my time but I remember my Dad telling me that he was a proper midfield player - took no prisoners.

Welcome to the 2021 Rangers.......

I liked Petchey. As said, a really good midfielder or right half as we knew it. He was possessed of a hard shot and a good body swerve when advancing on defenders.

Quite agree about George Petchey. In modern parlance, our ballwinner!

Used to like Rutter when I was a kid and can remember being quite upset when he was replaced by Dugdale. Petchey came from West Ham and joined the same time as the other half back Peter Angel.

Remember them both very well Keith Rutter was the 3rd Division best centre half. I was in contact with him 3 or 4 years back. Was great to learn that His testimonial raised enough money to buy a house & set up a business. George Petchey was a fine wing half great to watch. My first match at Rangers was in 1949.

I used to watch these players regular when my dad used to take me. Sitting on a wooden bench in the now South Africa Road stand. Truly great times for me as a young lad.

Respect to you. Do you still make the matches?

72 years makes me still in the development stage with my 51.

Well done to the club in recognising these former players.

I've mentioned in other threads how looking back, it seems the team never changed - Drinkwater, Woods, Ingham, Petchey, Rutter, Angell and so on. Players didn't seem to pick up injuries. Or of course it may be my memory in tatters.
