Christian was a part of the successful BP Youth Cup sides in 1990 and 1991. On 25th August 1990 he made his debut to become the youngest player to play in the Scottish League Premier Division.

By 1993-94, he was a regular in the United line up and collected a Scottish Cup winners medal that same season. He spent two more years at Tannadice during which he experienced both relegation and promotion.

Starting as a forward, Christian evolved into a defensive player throughout his time with United and in July 1996, he moved to Derby County for a fee reported to be around 1million. He went on to have a successful career at full international level with Scotland, winning 67 caps, scoring six goals and captaining the national side a dozen times.
