Signed from Celtic in July 1979 after playing several reserve team games at the end of the previous season. His Rovers career was hampered by injury, and only played a minor role in the promotion team of 1980/81, being released at the end of that season. His first club was Fulham. Although he didn't score in the League for Rovers, he did score two in the League Cup. As with many Rovers players of that era, he is a former schoolboy and youth international player.
