Craig Bryson talks about his ambitions in the last years of his career.

St Johnstone’s


Craig Bryson

is dreaming about finishing his career with some glory. The 34 year old midfielder has been on the edge of winning Challenge Cup and League Cup but has never tasted the victory. 

“You can get carried away when you’re young,”

admitted Bryson.

“Because I played in that Challenge Cup final with Clyde when I was 22, you think it will happen a lot more.

“But the older you get the more you realize you don’t get to play in semi-finals and finals that often.

“So when you do, you have to grab the chance with both hands. That’s what the gaffer said to us before the semi-final with Hibs at Hampden.

“I’ve played in two finals before – and lost two.

“Hopefully it will be third time lucky in the Betfred final.

“I was also injured for another play-off final unfortunately (against Aston Villa in 2019). We lost that one too, so that was another excellent occasion. Hopefully I’ve got more luck at Hampden than I do at Wembley, let’s put it that way.

“Growing up, these are the kind of games you want to play in. At my age now, this could potentially be the last final I play in so to end my career with a trophy and a medal would be amazing.”

And about their position in the competition he added:

“We can only use the fact we have cup final places up for grabs to our benefit, But we have to put the actual game itself on the back burner.

“We’ve got a good few league games coming up and we really need the points to move up the table.

“We believe we can finish in the top six this season but we need to turn performances into wins.”
