I remember thinking he looked like Frankenstein, we used to go up for autographs at partick and he was a scary looking man!

Knocked back the tims too if im not mistaken!!

Used to roll his foot over the ball alot. Particularly when boxed in, near the corner flag.

Was friends with a girl who worked as a maid in the Lodges at Cameron House when Petric signed for us.

He stayed there for quite a while until his house was sorted.

Anyway, the girl (a Rangers fan), told me that he was a clatty, clatty barsteward. Said that the muck in the bath, state of the toilet pan, hair all over the place, gave her the absolute boak (and she was used to seeing these sorts of things).

May or may not be wrong, but this has developed into my abiding memory of him.

his storming debut in the ibrox tourney when we beat sampdoria 2-0

being MAJORLY slow, quality with the ball at his feet though

i wish we had a combination of bjorklunds pace with petric's footballing ability

Being utterly wasted by Smith as a man marker in a back three instead of playing sweeper.

He was good on the ball but got bullied by the bigger centre forwards IIRC and wasn't the quickest!

Another lazily scouted useless twat who was slower than 2 weeks in jail, crap in the air, no strength , vacant faced , no heart.

In short what we have today in Christian Daily.

For every Laudrup and Gazza we got a dozen like this along side them.

He had a signature that was so easy to forge, someone with no arms would have no trouble at all doing it with their teeth.

Did indeed and was banned for 6 games for his trouble

Came during a 3-0 pumping by Utd at Ibrox, They were 3up after 21 minutes and Smith subbed off half his backline before the break - thats was crazy that day :eek:

After one match I got back to my car to discover I'd lost my keys. Made way back to ground to see if they'd been handed in. Went to front door, explained it, waited about, and a steward came over and gave me them back, Me and my brother walk out front door and this wee guy comes up to me and says "Can I get your autograph, Mr Petric?"

big petric used to like going to the piggery as he was surrounded by ***** in green & grey that were uglier than him >:)

i remember him just standing there in front of the salonika ultras during the warm up, pumping his hands in the air and showing off his rangers badge on his training top. totally wound them up. he just stood there staring them out.

at the same time there was a guy who collected empty glasses in the District that had an uncanny resemblence to petric, he even had the empty stare :)

The silky Serb was nae mug. What age was he when we had him? Don't recall him doing too much after we punted him.

His autograph was looked liked a 5yr old had signed in.

Dont think Big Gordan had learnt joined up writing!!

About 25/26, he played for Hearts for a couple of seasons after us

Since he has been summed up i will add,

Ian Ferguson on Goals,Gaffes and Outtakes video cooing like a doo at Petric's pidgeon chest when he was sitting getting his team photo took. :D

Did he no come on at the Piggery with the same squad number as someone already on the pitch? That's my memory of the big man.

He looked fantastic at Dundee Utd as a sweeper - getting the ball and running out of defence.

Rangers plonked him into a back 3 alongside Gough & McLaren and then Gough & Bjorklund and it just didn't work. Petric would also sometimes appear as the extra defencsive midfielder at the Piggery.

Didnt work in a 3 but scored a great header against Vladikavkaz in the 3-1 Ibrox win

Met him at airport just after he signed for us!! Think we were playing In 1 of our summer tourneys that day too! Felt as though he was a giant

Think he is involved in the technical set up of Partizan Belgrade or at least he was a few years ago.

Giving away a penalty against us for Hearts at Tynecastle in a 1-0 win, Barry probably dived for it in all honesty.

We went down to 9 men with Reyna and Numan going off and Klos put in one of the best goalkeeping performances I've ever seen.
