Craig Johnston

Craig Peter Johnston (born 25 June 1960) is an Australian former professional footballer. He played as a midfielder in the English Football League between 1977 and 1988, winning five league titles and an FA Cup (scoring in the 1986 final) with Liverpool. Nicknamed “skippy”, Johnston was a crowd favourite at Anfield, making 271 Liverpool appearances and scoring 40 goals.[1] He was a key member of the 1986 “double” winning team. He also co-wrote the team’s 1988 cup final song “Anfield Rap”.

After retiring, he designed and created the prototype for Adidas’ Predator football boot, worn by many footballers and rugby players. He was eligible for the Australian and South African national teams, but only ever appeared for the England U21 youth team.
