Andy Penn from the West Midlands will referee Rangers trip to Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Andy qualified as a referee in 1986 and progressed through youth football and the West Midlands leagues before being promoted to the Football League as an assistant referee in 1996.
He was promoted to the national list of referees in 2002. He refereed the 2004 Birmingham senior cup final and a FA Vase semi-final in the same year.
After joining the list in 2002, he refereed Rangers in the second division as they travelled to Cheltenham`s Whaddon Road. Loanee Jerome Thomas handed the R`s the lead before two match changing incidents.
Kevin Gallen was withdrawn injured during an excellent display as Rangers lost their lynchpin forward, Martin Devaney then equalised for the Robins before Mr Penn made an atrocious decision to send off Rangers defender Clarke Carlisle. The defender was adjudged to have spat at forward Julian Alsop who himself was oblivious to any wrongdoing on the defenders part. Suffice to say the card was rescinded.
The following season in the League Cup and Rangers were back at Whaddon Road and so was Mr Penn, and once again a familiar affair saw Rangers come out narrowly on top. Gareth Ainsworth opened the scoring to continue his blistering start in a Rangers shirt, before Richard Langley signed off with a late winner before departing for Cardiff City.
This coming despite the R`s being a goal down courtesy of Grant McCann, and once again a man down after Paul Furlong was sent off after just over 20 minutes. Mr Penn keeping up his card happy record against the R`s.
The two fixtures against the Robins were the only games that Mr Penn oversaw the R`s - as he has not refereed Rangers at this level, and in a total of eight years.
