Bio Extra

Joined Thistle from Hibs at the same time as Gareth Evans in a deal that saw Ian Cameron join the Easter Road side. Had an uncertain start to his Thistle career but gradually won the Thistle fans over with some fine displays in the centre of the Thistle defence. Was still at Firhill at the start of the following season but John McVeigh moved him on to Airdrie as he tried to reorganise the club.
