Bio Extra

Was signed by John Lambie from Motherwell in the summer of 1989 and started that season, as did the whole team, in a confident manner. Suffered badly under Sandy Clark and was never able to regain his form and was in dispute with the club for a long period. Remained at Firhill over the next couple of seasons and played a number of matches during the promotion winning season of 91/92. Left Firhill at the end of that season and joined an increasing colony of former Thistle players at Glenafton.
