Bio Extra

Joined Thistle not long after John McVeigh assumed the managerial reigns at Firhill. Started the season in the first team and performed well scoring a couple of goals from a midfield berth, but a long standing injury soon brought an end to his playing career. Stepped up to assistant manager after the departure of Kenny McDowaII to Celtic, and remained in that role until he and McVeigh left Firhill following relegation. Followed McVeigh to Raith Rovers and took over as manager himself for a while, but eventually left by mutual consent.
