St Johnstone’s Liam Craig has opened up on what he’s been doing during Scottish football’s shutdown.

The season is on an indefinite hiatus as the world battles a Covid-19 pandemic. Who knows when we’ll see SPFL action kick off again, but it isn’t likely to be soon.

Craig has discussed what he’s been doing during this period. He says that his family have kept him distracted whilst also detailing how he’s kept in touch with his St Johnstone team

“It’s important that we all look out for each other,” he told the club’s website. “All of us have different circumstances. I’ve got a family at home who can keep me company and that’s keeping me occupied at the moment but there are some boys who are in their houses or flats alone.

“We’ve got a great dressing room spirit at the Club and we’re all in constant communication with each other on WhatsApp and social media. We’re all keeping ourselves ticking over so that we’re ready to get going again when we are given the go ahead.

“The boys have been in touch with Bod (Fitness Coach, Alex Headrick) on a daily basis providing updates on how we’re getting on with our programmes.”


Charity moves

Craig has also shown his charitable side during this crisis. He opted to put one of his shirts from the brilliant 2015/16 season up for auction in order to raise money for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) and the Perth & Kinross Foodbank.

Not only did the winning bid come in at £575, Craig added £225 whilst St Johnstone added £200, taking the grand total up to £1,000.

It’s a great gesture from the McDiarmid Park legend in what is a worrying time for all.
