Biography

Craig started his career as a youth at United. He left for junior football and then played with Forfar Athletic and Raith Rovers before returning to United in 1993.

He attained hero status at the Club, scoring the only goal to win the Scottish Cup in 1994. He was also top scorer that year. During the First Division campaign of 1995-96, Craig was top scorer again but after helping United to regain top league status, he left to join Greek side Ionikos.

He later played with Hibs, Dunfermline Athletic and Inverness Caledonian Thistle (where he became player-manager). In January 2006 he returned to United as Player/Manager, but left again ten months later.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Craig was born on this date in Dundee.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Craig started his career as a youth at United. He left for junior football and then played with Forfar Athletic and Raith Rovers before returning to United in 1993.

  • Manager Ivan Golac maintained his record of never having lost the first game in charge of any of the clubs he has managed and a draw was probably just about the right result. The kick-off was delayed ten minutes to let the large crowd in and they got their first sight of United's new look formation in which Billy McKinlay played just behind the front men. This had Aberdeen guessing for the opening 30 minutes, but it wasn't until seven minutes before half-time that United went ahead. Alan Main's goal-kick was headed on by Christian Dailly. The presence of Paddy Connolly distracted the two Aberdeen defenders, allowing Billy McKinlay to race on and he stroked the ball in at Snelders near post from exactly 18 yards for his first goal since scoring the equaliser against the Dons last December. Aberdeen's response was a mini siege around Alan Main's goal with Mixu Paatelainen heading just over and then hitting a swerving 20 yarder which Alan Main could only parry and Booth scrambled the rebound narrowly past.

  • Thistle haven't tasted success at Tannadice in the Premier Division, but they must have felt their moment had arrived in this encounter. They deservedly led 2-1 with just seconds remaining when United pounced to snatch a late equaliser which even Manager Ivan Golac admitted we didn't deserve! Grant Johnson and Freddy van der Hoorn were both omitted from the side which lost to Rangers and with Jim Mclnally suspended, that meant there were recalls for Craig Brewster, Mark Perry and Alex Cleland.

  • Sons have paid heavily for that shock victory over United in October as United banged in six for the second successive home game to take their tally to 17 in the last three games against the men from Boghead. Despite the 3-1 victory at Paisley, Billy Kirkwood made one change for the visit of already relegated Dumbarton, Gary McSwegan replacing Andy McLaren who joined Christian Dailly and Kelham O'Hanlon on the bench.

  • United struggled all night to match the desire to win of their Division 1 opponents. There was also a deep sense of irony that ex United man Jason Scotland was a thorn in the United defence’s flesh all night, scoring once in the first half and being denied his double by an athletic save from Stillie.
