A tough-tackling midfielder, Russell is another of the famous 1967 team which shocked Scottish football by running out 1-0 winners over giants Glasgow Rangers in front of 13,000 people at Shielfield Park back in 1967.

A Rangers fan himself, Craig credits former boss Jock Wallace for the win, noting his tactical attention to detail and ability to motivate his side for the battled that waited.

In 2014, Russell demonstrated his humble character, joining forces with fellow former ‘Ger John Keith to successfully raise funds in aid of a new electric wheelchair for another former Berwick man, Stuart Markland.
