Guy Rabstejnek was born in Saint-Malo, and began his professional playing career with Stade Rennais, in 1946, after spending several years at US Servannaise et Malouine. He was a quality attacking midfielder, and he joined his elder brother (Joseph), who had been at Rennes since 1945, and with whom Rabstejnek would play for a season, before Joseph left the club left to sign for Stade Français. Guy Rabstejnek would mostly be deployed as a support player to the attacker, in the number 8 or number 10 shirt. He was used regularly in the Reserve Team, in particular in the 1947/1948 season, when he saw precious little action with the First Team. The 1949/1950 and 1950/1951 seasons would prove to be his most successful in the Red and Black shirt. He scored 11 goals in total over his five seasons with Stade Rennais University Club. In 1951, he left Rennes to join Monaco, playing in the Second Division at the time, spending two final seasons before hanging up his boots as a professional footballer in 1953, finishing on a high with a promotion back to the French top-flight. After that, he would go into coaching, even lacing up his football boots to play for amateur side FC Pau, a few years later.
