BiogThomas Craig (known as Tully Craig) was signed from Grange Rovers in June 1919 and made his first team debut in a 3-2 league win at Kilmarnock on January 17th 1920.
The left-half impressed on his debut, scoring two goals, but he was deemed to be too lightweight by Willie Maley and consequently spent most of his time at Parkhead in the reserves.
Maley was only too pleased to off load the Falkirk-born player to Alloa in an exchange deal which saw Craig and two other Celts swapped for Willie Crilly. While Crilly would disappoint in the Hoops Craig was a huge success at Alloa – so much so that after a season Rangers snapped him up for a hefty fee.
At Ibrox Craig continued to impress and he was a key member of the successful Rangers side of the twenties. He went on to be capped by Scotland and after leaving Rangers was manager at Falkirk and Linfield. Reputedly, he pioneered the first all-ticket match in Scotland, Falkirk v Rangers on 19 Mar 1938.
