Bio Extra

Another of John Lambie's shrewd moves in the transfer market. First came to Firhill in the early stages of season 92/93 as a trialist following a surprise free transfer from Dundee, the side that had pipped Thistle to the First Division title the season before. Despite an inauspicious start to his Thistle career, the Jags losing his first game 4-1 to Rangers and Willie himself being sent off 7 days later at Aberdeen, he did enough to earn a contract. He quickly established himself in the heart of the Thistle defence and became a lynchpin as Thistle twice staved off relegation. Moved to Hearts in exchange for Wayne Faster and missed out on a third successive successful fight against relegation. Later moved to Ayr United before sampling life in Northern Ireland and rejoined Thistle in the summer of 1998 as part of a new three man managerial team. Despite performing solidly enough he was clearly not the player he hod once been and he left the club in the summer.
