Bio Extra

His Dad was a cultured midfielder for Thistle, and Ian Jr. was keen to follow those footsteps. He was a very promising youngster and represented Scotland at U-16 level.

All of his appearances for Thistle came as a substitute and, at the age of just 16, he was introduced late in the game for a couple of league matches, a 1-0 win at Airdrie (30 April 2005) and a 1-1 draw at home to Accies (7 May 2005). A couple of months of later, the youngster featured in a few of the pre-season friendlies, but that was the end of it in first-team terms for the time being. The youngster moved on to Airdrie United for season 2006-07, where he mainly featured for the U-19s.

After completing an exciting soccer scholarship in America, the 23-year-old Ian tried again for Thistle in the summer of 2011. In this regard, he was also following in his father's footsteps in a way, both players having had two stints with the club. The 23-year-old Ian featured in the second half of the season-opener; Blyth Spartans 2 Partick Thistle 0. There would no deal signed however, and Ian would return to America where he settled and worked as a coach. Again, this was a case of like father, like son!
