Player Profile - Details
Craig signed for The Dons in the summer of 2019 from English Championship side Derby County. The midfielder had turned down a contract extension from The Pride Park side and had also attracted interest from clubs from both sides of the border and was a major coup for The Dons.
Born in Rutherglen, Craig began his career with Clyde where he made over 90 appearances for the Broadwood side. He played and scored in Clyde’s famous Scottish Cup victory over Celtic in 2006. Craig opened the scoring that day and came up against Roy Keane, who was making his debut for the Celtic Park side having signed from Manchester United.
He moved to Kilmarnock the following year on a free transfer and went onto play 135 times for the club and was also appointed as club captain.
In the summer of 2011, he moved to Derby County for a reported fee of £350,000 plus add ons. He played 276 times during his time at Pride Park where he worked under current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard. Craig spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Cardiff City where he helped the Welsh side to promotion to the Premier League.
Craig has won three caps for Scotland. His first came at Pittodrie in 2010, when he came off the bench in a 3-0 victory over the Faroe Islands. He made his first start for his county against Norway three years later and his last appearance for the national side came in 2016 during a 1-0 defeat away to Italy.
