Great keeper,played on the same side at Fernhill Athletic and against him when he was in goal for Rutherglen Academy,bloody hard man to get the ball past.Could have gone a lot further in the game but his interests lay elsewhere.J

Brilliant goalie. Nuff said. Also when he was teenager, long before he became a famous artist, he worked down the steel works in Cambuslang. He used to draw sketches in his break and then sign them. He gave a book full of drawings to a co- worker who drinks in Rutherglen. Unfortunately he did not recognise the value and chucked them out. That is like having a winning jackpot lottery ticket and losing it.

Steven Campbell was born into a postwar Glasgow in which bright children from working-class backgrounds were encouraged to get educated and expand their horizons. Campbell left his school, Rutherglen Academy, at 16, and worked in engineering for several years, a false start that ended when he applied to attend the fiercely selective Glasgow School of Art. After graduation and being awarded, in 1982, the Bram Stoker gold medal, Campbell went to New York and studied at the city’s Pratt Institute after acquiring a Fulbright scholarship. It was while working in New York during the 1980s that Campbell began to establish an international reputation.
