Biography

Old fashioned wing back signed in 1965 from Third Lanark (does not appear to have a first team outing for them). Was on the books of Celtic (again, no first team outing) as a youngster. Played for Clydebank in the Combined Reserve League before our official admittance to the Scottish League in season 1966/67.

Older brother of Clydebank winger Joe Rankin. Part of the Rankin football dynasty which includes brother Stan who played for Morton and Stevie Rankin who was manager of Ashfield and Irvine Meadow and was a good junior grade footballer in his time. The father Archie Rankin won three (3) Junior international caps.

Archie was converted to a centre half by Mr Steedman but could not adapt to this new position and Clydebank struggled as a result. He was replaced by John McGill early into our first season in the league. He only made the occasional appearance during the rest of the season.
