Bio Extra

Despite never really making the break through into the first team at Celtic, it was still a fine piece of business by John Lambie to lure the player to Firhill under freedom of contract. His lightning pace made him a big hit with the Thistle fans and a real handful for his opponents. He was among the nominees for the First Division Players Player of the Year award and carried off the Thistle Supporters Federation award. But his Thistle career lasted just one season as he and Chic Chamley joined St Mirren in exchange for cash plus the services of Mark McWalter and George Shaw. He rejoined the club in 1999 on a short term contract but his second spell at the club was shortlived.
