John Lambie was well known for some of his expressions. "We shot ourselves in the arm" (after a Scottish Cup defeat to Ayr United in March 2000) and "Ma heid's buzzled" spring to mind. His post match comments after a 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen at Pittodrie on 14/12/1993 quoted in the "Aberdeen Press and Journal" revealed that he felt keeper Craig Nelson has been at fault for the first goal and that "he came out like a big teuchter".
