CRAIG BROWN 

 Former Scottish Men's National Team Coach & Player

As a youngster Craig played in the same Scotland U18 teams as Sir Alex Ferguson and Billy McNeill.    He was a fine youth player, much in demand, and as an 18 year old signed for Rangers. Two years later, after a loan spell at Dundee, Manager Bob Shankly made him his first signing.   In spite of undergoing four knee operations at Dens Park, Craig won a Championship medal in the impressive League winning Dundee team of 1962.

 

He finished his playing days in the old First Division with Falkirk then embarked on a coaching career as Assistant Manager of Motherwell. A move to Clyde followed where in a 9 year spell he won two lower League Championships and sold players such as Steve Archibald, Tommy McQueen, Joe Ward, Pat Nevin, Gerry McCabe, Brian Ahern, Jim Boyd and Ian Ferguson for much needed income.

 

In 1986 after Sir Alex took him on the international team coaching staff to the Mexico World Cup Craig joined the SFA as Assistant Manager to Andy Roxburgh with sole charge of the U21 side. He is the only manager to take a Scottish team to a FIFA World Cup Final (U16 v Saudi Arabia in 1989), and a ¼ Final in Chile (U20 v West Germany in 1987). Further success in 1992 was taking a young Scottish team to the UEFA U21 Semi-Final losing 0-1 over two legs to Sweden.

 

Craig was on the Scotland National Team coaching staff at 5 major tournaments, assisting Sir Alex Ferguson in Mexico, 1986, and Andy Roxburgh in Italy, 1990 and Sweden, 1992.  He was manager of the national team for a record 70 matches, unbeaten in 50 of them, with back-to-back major tournament appearances in charge - at Euro’96, and FIFA World Cup, France, 1998.

Now Club Ambassador at Aberdeen FC Craig took over as manager in 2010.  The Dons then were rock bottom of the league with 10 points from the opening 16 matches.   With Archie Knox by his side and Hartlepool boss, Paul Hartley as captain, respectability and stability were restored and the threat of relegation dispelled. 

 

Prior to arriving at Aberdeen FC, Craig has served 3 clubs in England, Preston N E, Fulham and Derby County and had taken a fine Motherwell side to the play-off stage of the EUROPA Cup.

 

Craig has received countless awards, such as Hall of Fame entries, two Honorary Doctorates, and a CBE for services to football.
