Biography


An inside forward who joined the club in the 1945-46 season from Rutherglen, Peter made his debut against Alloa that same season and he scored his first goal for the club against Stenhousemuir in a 5-1 victory.

Peter spent a total of six seasons at the club making a total of forty appearances, scoring twenty goals for the club. He scored once in both games against Alloa and Dunfermline when Dundee won 10-0 in consecutive weeks!

Rattray was sold to Plymouth during the 1950-51 season for £3000 plus centre forward Stan Williamson. He scored 21 goals in 54 Home Park appearances and five in 24 league games after a move to Norwich in the 1952 close season.

The striker eventually moved back up to Scotland, seeing out his career with Stirling Albion and then St Johnstone.
