Bio Extra

John Lambie described Bell as the fittest player he had ever signed from England just after his arrival from Shrewsbury Town. Despite that praise, Bell rarely featured during the course of his one season at Firhill, 1991-92. He is best remembered during his time at Firhill for his part in an incident during a reserve game with Celtic that saw Peter Grant sent off.
