Biography

Christophe Berra was born in Edinburgh and progressed through the youth academy at Hearts, making his first team debut in November 2003. The defender has made over 250 appearance for the club over two spells, and was part of the Hearts team that finished second in the league and won the Scottish Cup in the 2005/06 season.

George Burley handed Christophe his Scotland debut in 2008, and he has gone on to amass 41 caps, scoring 4 goals.

In January 2009 Christophe transferred to Wolverhampton Wanderers for a fee of £2.5million. He became a mainstay of Wolves side under Mick McCarthy, helping the team win the Championship title in May 2009 and promotion to the Premier League.

Christophe left Wolves in 2013 and signed for Ipswich Town, once again linking up with Mick McCarthy. He was a consistent performer for Ipswich over 4 seasons, making 185 appearances before signing a pre-contract agreement to return to Hearts in 2017.

In January 2020 Christophe signed for Dundee on loan from Hearts until the end of the season, adding much needed experience to the Dundee backline. Playing alongside Jordan Forster and Josh Meekings in a back three, Christophe made 6 appearances and helped Dundee keep 5 consecutive clean sheets before the season was curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Dundee had to settle for a point this afternoon from a 1-1 draw against Morton in Greenock. Kane Hemmings gave the Dee an early lead only for Jim McAlister to equalise. Shortly after half time Morton’s Kyle Jacobs was sent off but despite massive pressure from the Dark Blues they couldn’t force a winner.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee 2 - 0 Ayr Utd

    Dundee completed the two match head to head against Ayr United with a fine 2-0 win at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park. Kane Hemmings gave the Dark Blues an early lead and Oliver Crankshaw came off the bench to secure the points with his first goal for the club. The visitors had chances in the first half but after the interval Dundee controlled the game. All the second half excitement was in Ayr’s penalty area but the Dee had to wait until injury time for the second goal.
