Liam Craig

Liam re-joined the club in July 2015 on a one-year deal after leaving Hibernian in the summer. Originally signed in 2008 from Falkirk, this clever creative midfielder was snapped up by then Saints manager Derek McInnes after a successful loan period from The Bairns in season 2007/08.

A good ball winner and passer Liam was a vital member of our promotion winning squad in 2008/09 season. He was Saints top scorer in the SPL with 8 goals in 2009/10 season and again the next season with 5 goals.

Liam began his career as a trainee with Ipswich Town whom he joined as a youngster after being spotted with Berwick Rangers Juniors. Whilst with Ipswich he skippered the youth side to victory in the 2005 Youth Cup final. He then joined Falkirk in 2006 and was a regular first team squad player in his first season before joining Saints in 2007.

In 2013 Liam decided to leave Saints and joined Hibernian and in November of that year he was appointed Hibs captain by then Manager Terry Butcher.

Liam made 58 appearances for the Leith side, scoring 8 goals before leaving in the summer of 2015 to make a welcome return to McDiarmid Park.

Made his 250th Saints appearance in the 2 - 1 win over Motherwell at McDiarmid Park on 20th February 2016.

In May 2016 Liam extended his stay with Saints by signing a new contract covering season 2016/2017 with a further year option beyond that which will be triggered by appearances during this season.

Liam scored his 50th goal in a Saints shirt in the 3 - 0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle at McDiarmid Park on 3 December 2016.
