Bio Extra

A Thistle player since the mid 1980s, few players deserved to be successful in the Premier League with Thistle more than Bobby Law. Was the centre of more heated terracing debates any other player in recent history, but nobody could deny Bobby's commitment to Thistle although he did have a few moments that he would care to forget. The good far outweighed the bad however, the highlights of his Thistle career probably coming when he captained the side for two games, and never a prolific scorer, scored in both matches.
