Soon-to-be Airdrie assistant Cameron is a well known face in Scottish football

Cameron has been in and around Scottish football since the 90s. He started his career at Raith Rovers, making 152 appearances for The Rovers.

He achieved great success there, winning the League Cup in 1994 and leading them into Europe, where they memorably faced Bayern Munich.

A tenacious midfielder, Cameron’s next Scottish club was Hearts, where he was part of the famous Jambos Scottish Cup wining squad in 1998.

Cameron’s career headed down south after this, with a lengthy spell at Wolves followed by Millwall, Coventry City and MK Dons.

He returned to Scotland with Dundee in 2008, before floating around the lower leagues as his career came to a close. He finished up his playing days at Berwick Rangers.

Scotland caps also came calling for Cameron, who made 28 appearances for his country. The 46-year-old has also held managerial roles at Berwick and Cowdenbeath.

Now Airdrie looks set to be his latest challenge. The Diamonds are currently fourth in League One.
