Club career

Celtic

Born in Glasgow, Beattie started his career as a schoolboy with Rangers, the team he supported in his youth but, after being released by manager Dick Advocaat, he joined Celtic.

During an under-19 pre-season friendly against prominent Irish side Derry City, Beattie scored all six goals in a 6–0 win.[citation needed] In August 2003 he made his senior debut for the Hoops as substitute in a UEFA Champions League qualifying victory against FBK Kaunas. Beattie has featured in numerous matches, including in the UEFA Cup against FC Barcelona. After scoring four goals near the end of the 2004–05 season, he started the 2005–06 season by becoming the first Scot since Gerry Creaney to score in three consecutive games for Celtic.[citation needed] He netted seven goals in the first three months of the season.

He appeared as substitute in 43 games and had 23 starts which limited his Celtic career goal tally to 16. His last Celtic goal came against Aberdeen on 17 February 2007 in a 2–1 win.

West Bromwich Albion

Beattie was signed on a three-year contract by West Bromwich Albion on 3 July 2007 for an initial fee of £1.25 million with an added £500,000 depending on performance-related add-ons.[1] He scored his first hat-trick for the team on 4 August in a friendly against Dutch side SC Heerenveen.[2] Beattie made his competitive Albion debut in a 2–1 defeat away at Burnley on 11 August, the opening day of the 2007–08 season.[3] Three days later he scored his first competitive goal for the club, as Albion beat Bournemouth 1–0 in the League Cup.

Beattie moved to Preston North End on 4 March 2008, on loan until the end of the season.[4] He made his Preston debut later that day in a 1–0 win away at Leicester City, but was substituted after 38 minutes due to a muscle injury, later revealed to be a double hamstring tear.[5][6] Beattie returned to West Brom early in order to receive treatment for the injury and was expected to miss the rest of the season.[7] He made a rapid recovery however, and returned to Preston for the final two games of the loan spell,[8] making one further appearance as a substitute. Tony Mowbray stated that he would not stand in Beattie's way should he seek a move away from the Hawthorns.

In September 2008, Beattie joined Crystal Palace on a month-long loan,[9] scoring on his second appearance to give them a victory over Charlton Athletic in the South London derby. The loan was later extended until 28 December 2008,[10] however due to an injury to Ishmael Miller and some goal-scoring success at Palace, Beattie was recalled on 10 December.[11] Beattie scored his first Premier League goal on 28 December, against Tottenham Hotspur.

Beattie joined Sheffield United on a three-month loan in February 2009,[12] making his debut a day later, appearing as a second half substitute in a 2–2 draw away at Plymouth Argyle.[13] Beattie went on to make 16 appearances for United that season, all but three of them from the bench. He scored one goal in the process, netting the fourth in a 4–2 home win over Derby County in March.[14] He played in all three of the team's play-off games at the end of the season, including the Final at Wembley Stadium, but with the club failing to clinch promotion he subsequently returned to his parent club.[15]

Swansea City

Beattie signed for Swansea City as a replacement for departed striker Jason Scotland on 27 August 2009. He scored his first goal on 17 October 2009 against Ipswich Town. He scored in his next game for Swansea against previous club West Bromwich Albion on 20 October. Beattie scored his third and final goal of the season with a free-kick against Scunthorpe United on 31 October. A year and a half after signing, Beattie scored his first ever goal at the Liberty Stadium in a 2–1 defeat at the hands of Portsmouth on 26 November. On 4 December Beattie scored two goals against Ipswich Town. Beattie scored his 4th goal of the season with the winner against Middlesbrough after Swansea came back from 3–1 down to beat 'Boro 4–3. On October 24th, Craig Beattie joined Watford FC on loan until January 8th.

Personal life

Beattie attended Chryston High School.[16]
