Wolverhampton Wanderers: top 30 players - Number 25

Wolves Billy Wright Stand

Colin Cameron played for 11 different clubs during his career, but his best spell in English football came with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

 

Colin Cameron never quite replicated the goalscoring form that he produced at Hearts, but he was a key player for Wolverhampton Wanderers as they finally earned promotion to the Premier League in 2003.

 

Two years earlier, Wolves splashed out £1.75m on his signature and although the club could not progress through the playoffs at the end of the campaign, he had established himself in the first team and he played a leading role as Wolves finally cracked the big time in the First Division playoffs.

 

Dave Jones's team would be relegated straight back to the second tier, but Cameron was responsible for some of the most memorable moments of the season, including the winning goal against Manchester City and a double in arguably the greatest comeback in Premier League history when Wolves overturned a 3-0 deficit at half time to beat Leicester City 4-3.

 

Cameron would gradually be eased out of the team during the Glenn Hoddle era, but with 25 goals in 188 appearances in all competitions, the Scottish international can be proud of his time in the Black Country.

 

He also went throughout the entire five years without featuring on the losing side in games in which he scored.
