Biography


A product of the youth development at Dens, Rab started out at right-back but ended up at left back for the club. He made his debut against Meadowbank Thistle in the League Cup in 1983-84 and had to wait to score his first goal for the club three seasons later in the 7-0 victory at Nairn County in the Scottish Cup

Having been capped at Under-21 level, he was included in the full squad, but never played for Scotland at that level.

Rab went on to make two-hundred and sixty one appearances and scored thirteen goals for the club before he moved to Middlesbrough on loan in 1991, where he made one substitute appearance whilst on.

Manager lan Munro then sold him to Dunfermline with lan McCall, Eddie Gallagher and cash coming to Dens.

He spent two seasons with the Pars before moving to Motherwell in 1993-94 and would stay for a few season at Fir Park before moving to Dundee United when they were in the First Division.

During the following season, he went to Hibs with whom he spent three seasons. His senior career finished at East Fife in 2000. Had a brief spell with St Andrews United before retiring from the game.
