Biography: Gerry Creaney was hailed as one of the brightest young striking prospects in Scotland. After scoring 53 goals in 144 games for Celtic he joined Pompey for £600,000 much to the dismay of the Hoops' fans. The Scotsman proved his worth with 32 goals in his 60 appearances and this attracted the interest of Manchester City, who parted with £1.5m to lure him to Maine Road in 1995. Creaney returned to Scotland and became manager at Bellshill Athletic in 2010, head of youth development at Dundee in 2014, then most recently joined the St Johnstone FC Youth Academy staff. He used to have a strange quirk of playing wearing a gumshield and earned a reputation for falling down quite a bit, and the Celtic fanzines joked about him “skidding about on his arse”.
