HALL OF FAME

 

The Hall of Fame is a celebration of historic Hibernian careers and achievements.

Position Goalkeeper

Alan made his name as an 18 year old with Partick Thistle after signing from Sighthill Amateurs. Making the first of 624 appearances for Thistle in 1970, he was a member of the Maryhill Magyar side that stunned Scottish football by defeating Celtic 4-1 in the 1971 League Cup Final.

 

Alan Rough. Inducted in 2012.

 

Rough would go on to become one of Scotland's greatest ever goalkeepers, and during his 14 seasons at Firhill he became Thistle's most capped player with 51 appearances at full international level. Rough was one of Hibernian manager Pat Stanton's first signings during the 1982-83 season. During his six years at Easter Road and 206 games, in a period that Rough himself admits was the best of his playing career, the ever reliable goalkeeper was reckoned to save Hibernian at least a dozen points per season. This form saw him quickly become a great favourite with the fans.

Alan would win a further two caps during his time at Easter Road, the first when he replaced Jim Leighton during the 1-1 draw with Wales in a World Cup qualifier at Cardiff in 1985, a game that ended with the tragic death of Scotland manager Jock Stein shortly after the final whistle.

After spells with Orlando Lions, Celtic, Hamilton and Ayr United, he would finish his playing career with Glenafton, eventually leading the junior side as manager to their first ever Scottish Cup Final success in 1993.
