Aye, poor old Ronnie, a sad day. He was a good un, thinking about him it brings back a few memories. Part of the half back line Clayton, Woods, McGrath - Later Clayton, England, McGrath. Also of curse the last Rover to captain England ?

He used to have a newsagent's shop in Darwen at one time.

A Rover through and through, I'll spend a few moments paying my respects to him tonight.

Just heard on Radio Lancs - gutted. An Ewood legend through and through, and a true member if the Rovers family. I grew up on tales of Ronnie Clayton and Bryan Douglas, and the both of them have been constants throughout my 28 years of going to Ewood.

A sad day indeed, hope there's at least a minutes silence tomorrow.

Rovers TV are usually pretty good at putting tributes together, just hope they have the time before kick off tomorrow.

May he Rest in Peace indeed.

He was the cornerstone of the team I grew up watching in the late 1950s. Like many on here, I met him briefly in later years and felt I'd met not just a Rovers player but a Rovers fan too. You won't get many like him in years to come.
