The defender is on-loan at Bolton Wanderers.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs making good progress and he will have a big future, not only for his talent but his work ethic and his application,‚ÄĚ said McAuley.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs second to none. I know people at Bolton who are very impressed with him and how he has continued to get better.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs been unlucky with the partnership Jonas and I have had as that means he‚Äôs not played as often but he‚Äôs still young.
‚ÄúBut his time will come. I didn‚Äôt play professional football until I was 24. Craig got a chance before then and he‚Äôs making the most of it.‚ÄĚ
