Weight78 kg

PositionDefender

Having developed through the Australian Institute of Sport, Craig joined Rangers for the first time in September 1993.

He went on to win three Scottish League titles (1994-95, 1995-96, 1996-97) for the Gers before he was sold to Crystal Palace in October 1998.

However, financial problems forced the Selhurst Park club to send him back to Ibrox in March 1999.

A hard-tackling and uncompromising defender, he became troubled by injuries and struggled to establish himself as a regular first-team member.

Craig, who made his debut for Australia against Ghana in June 1995, joined Newcastle United in July 2005 with a two-year contract.

Craig scored the first equaliser with a penalty in the 2-2 against Croatia at Germany 2006 that saw Australia through to the knockout stages of the World Cup finals for the first time.
