Bio Extra

Despite only being at Firhill for a short period during the course of the 94/95 season the former West Ham winger who was signed from Peterborough, was a popular player with the Thistle supporters. His long term Thistle prospects weren't helped by some fairly rough treatment on his debut at Ibrox against Rangers and a harsh red card at Dundee. Amazingly, there was a Thistle supporters club in Germany named after him.
