Former East Fife striker George Christie, who was a member of the Berwick Rangers side that beat Rangers in the Scottish Cup more than 40 years ago, has died following a short illness.
Mr Christie (65) signed for East Fife from St Bernard’s Juveniles in June 1964 and soon established himself as a fans’ favourite by netting 23 goals during his first season.
He spent more than two seasons as a first-team regular at Bayview before transferring to Berwick Rangers in November 1966.
In 1967, he was centre forward when Berwick did the unthinkable by beating Rangers 1-0 in the Cup, laying on the pass for Sammy Reid to score the goal that sent shockwaves through the game. The victory is considered one of the greatest upsets in UK football history.
He returned for a second spell with East Fife before retiring from senior football at the end of the 1969-70 season.
