Dougie Gray was a legendary Rangers defender and their longest serving player, spending 22 years at his only club and making 940 appearances for the Gers over his whole career. He was a right back known for complete reliability, despite not having any outstanding physical attributes he was an intelligent defender who was fantastic at anticipating danger. His covering abilities were legendary: he was famous for making goal line clearances and it was said that Rangers had two goalkeepers when he was on the pitch. His manager Bill Struth considered Gray his best ever signing and said that he followed the ball more intently than anyone he had ever known. His distribution was also simple but effective, although he only scored 2 goals in his entire 22 year career, both from penalties. He was described as being of medium height and a slim build, completely contrary to his successor at the right back position, the giant George Young. He won 10 caps for Scotland and an incredible amount of trophies with Rangers, winning 10 league titles and 6 Scottish Cups even with football being suspended for 6 of those years.

Thanks for the stats!
Regarding height/weight:

Here's a picture of Scottish League XI from 1929:


John Thomson's height was 172 cm (other sources have him at 175 cm), so Gray should be about 168 cm tall (not 100% sure, I'm not good at guessing heights from pictures).
