Bio Extra

The original man of many clubs, Byrne first came to the attention of the Thistle management team while playing with St Johnstone against Thistle, ironically scoring an own goal that handed Thistle a precious point. The next season saw him line up in Thistle colours and for the next couple of seasons was a very useful squad member. Played with numerous clubs after leaving Firhill, including Tottenham Hotspur in the Intertoto Cup.
