Bio Extra

The stereotypical Scottish footballer either exasperating or brilliant. Had no fewer than three spells at Firhill a testimony to his ability while on form. First joined Thistle half way through season 91/92, and had a big part to play in Thistle's eventual promotion to the Premier League. He was able to torment defenders in the higher league before moving down south to sign for Shrewsbury Town before once again plying his trade with Partick Thistle. He was back on his travels before too long before briefly rejoining the club during the Intertoto Cup campaign.
