Callum Davidson

Tommy Wright moved swiftly to appoint Callum Davidson to the assistant manager post he vacated to take up the manager's position in the summer of 2013, and the pair haven't looked back since. The Scottish Cup, European and league success since his appointment as assistant manager is a reward for the performances Davidson had given the club over two spells as a player.

Callum, who was originally born in Stirling and grew up in Dunblane, made his debut for Saints in August 1994 against Raith Rovers and stayed in Perth until English Premier League side Blackburn Rovers took him to Ewood Park for £1.75m - a record-breaking transfer fee which has never been surpassed.

He spent two years at Ewood Park making 66 League appearances and once away from McDiarmid Park and in the public eye with Blackburn he won a total of 17 caps for Scotland, the first coming against Lithuania in 1999 and the last coming in 2003 against Canada.

Spells with Leicester City and Preston North End followed although injury robbed Callum the chance of making the impact his undoubted talent merited before returning north of the border to return to St. Johnstone.

In his final match as a player, Callum helped Saints secure a 2-0 win at home to Motherwell on the last day of the season to ensure a record high league finish of third in the top-flight and a place in the Europa League qualifiers for the following season.

As assistant manager, Callum Davidson helped Saints win the Scottish Cup in 2014 and achieve three successive top 6 finishes in his three years in the job as no.2 to Tommy Wright.
