Bio Extra

A free transfer from Dundee, the midfielder more then repaid the money that wasn't spent on him. In his first season he managed just one goal from that midfield berth, but the next season that figure was increased to an astonishing 18. It was a figure that not only made him Thistle's top scorer but one of the top scoring midfielders in Britain. He remained with Thistle during the 95/96 season but left to team up with John Lambie at Falkirk but not before he found the net on a further 10 occasions for Thistle. Returned to Firhill during for one final season following a spell at Stenhousemuir, before hanging up his boots in June 2000.
