He played for 10 years with Rangers from 1955 to 1965 and was hugely successful, winning five league titles, three Scottish Cups and four League Cups during 407 appearances.
Shearer was a leader on and off the field and was hugely influential on John Greig, who came into the Rangers side under his tutelage.
Bobby, of course, was a key protaganist in the early 1960s side which is still revered all over the world as one of the best – if not the best – in the club’s history.
Ritchie; Shearer, Caldow; Greig, McKinnon, Baxter; Henderson, McMillan, Millar, Brand and Wilson is a line-up which trips off the tongue for a multitude of Rangers fans.
He was the captain when the Light Blues famously won the Treble in 1963/64 – only the second time it had happened.
The clean sweep was clinched with a remarkable 3-1 Scottish Cup Final win over Dundee when Rangers scored twice in the dying moments.
He once enjoyed an incredible run of 165 games in succession which was a sign of his strength.
Shearer, who had been signed from Hamilton Accies, passed away on November 6, 2006 aged 74.
