Bio Extra

Will always be well thought of by the Thistle fans if only for his two goals that helped Thistle to a famous 3-1 win over Celtic at Hampden Park. Arrived at Firhill half way through the 1995/96 season from Hearts with Thistle struggling at the foot of the league. His goals, plus another arrival from Tynecastle, keeper Nicky Walker, went a long way in helping Thistle to stage a comeback, eventually avoiding the drop at the expense of Dundee United. Was unable to recapture his goalscoring form the next season although he did score a spectacular goal against Falkirk. He later joined the Brockville outfit after a Firhill free transfer.
