Brendan O’Callaghan has been inducted in to the Hall of Fame as the stand out Rovers player of the 1970s.

As part of the club's 140 year celebrations, Rovers fans have been voting to induct one standout player from each decade into the Rovers Hall of Fame.

O’Callaghan received 55% of the vote making him one of the most popular winners so far. Bradford-born Brendan began his career with Rovers as an old-fashioned centre-forward.

He came off the bench to great impact in his fourth game when he scored the winner against local rivals Barnsley and making himself a fast fan’s favourite.

He went on to score 21 league goals in his first season and doubled that tally in 1975-76.

O’Callaghan remained with Rovers until March 1978 when he moved to Stoke City.
