Douglas 'Doug' Rougvie (born 24 May 1956 in Ballingrymarker, Fifemarker) is a retired Scottishmarker international footballer who played mainly for Aberdeen and Chelsea.

Playing Career


A hard-tackling and committed defender, Rougvie played for Aberdeen between 1975 and 1984, one of the most successful periods in their history. He made 279 appearances (28 as sustitute) and scored 21 goals, winning the Scottish league championship in 1979-80 and 1983-84, the Scottish Cup in 1982, 1983 and 1984, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1983 and the European Super Cup in 1983.


Rougvie signed for newly-promoted Englishmarker side Chelsea in 1984 for £150,000, a team which included the likes of Kerry Dixon, Pat Nevin and David Speedie. He made his debut for the club in the opening game of the new season against Arsenal at Highburymarker, at one point managing to floor Arsenal's Viv Anderson with a crunching challenge. Though initially a regular in the side, Rougvie's lack of pace and often reckless tackling were to hamper his progress with the club.

During a Milk Cup quarter-final match with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsboroughmarker, Chelsea came from 0-3 down to lead 4-3, only for Rougvie to concede a last minute penalty with a careless challenge and cost the team victory. He lost his place in the side towards the end of the 1984-85 season and thereafter only featured sporadically, though he did play in Chelsea's Full Members Cup win over Manchester City at Wembleymarker; despite scoring an own goal, his team won 5-4. He was later sent off within ten minutes of the kick-off in a match against Wimbledon for headbutting John Fashanu.

Brighton and Hove Albion

He was sold to Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer of 1987 for £73,000 having made 100 appearances for Chelsea and scored three goals.

Later Career

He later had brief spells with Fulham, Shrewsbury Town and Dunfermline, as well as a stint managing Scottish semi-professional side, Montrose.

He also played one game for Scotland in 1983.
