Bio Extra

Was re-united with John Lambie, his manager at Hamilton, when he joined Thistle from Falkirk for the closing months of the 92/93 season, making his Thistle debut at Fir Park as Thistle came from 2-0 down to win 3-2. A skilful midfielder who had seen service with Dundee United and Walsall as well as Accies and Falkirk, he wasn't a prolific scorer from midfield in the mould of Ray Famingham and Albert Craig, but he did have the pleasant habit of netting late goals against Rangers - twice in the closing minutes of games Alex's goals earned Thistle a point. He helped Ross County to the Third Division title a few years ago and played out the rest of his career in the lower divisions.
