Profile:
Joined the Dons as a youngster in 1972, the big defender went on to establish himself in the Dons side of the late 70's and also the all-conquering Dons of the 80's. Another cult hero at the club, Rougvie was a fearless competitor, and often found himself incurring the wrath of referees and opposing fans alike. Made over 300 appearances for the Dons (including friendlies) and scored 21 goals before a 225,000 switch to Chelsea in 1984. One cap for Scotland, against Ireland in 1983. His teammates nicknamed him the "Balingry Bat."
