Bio Extra

The pacy Kosovan-born Swede was brought to Firhill on loan from Bury towards the end of the 1988/99 season to bolster Thistle's fight to beat the drop. He quickly became very popular with the Thistle fans and was last seen driving away from Palmertson Park, the venue of the last game of that season, back to Bury with a Thistle scarf tied to his wing mirror.
