Football: JP itching to show Jags he can cut it.
The former Celtic kid has endured a tough four years since quitting Parkhead in a desperate search for regular first- team football.
But instead of making a name for himself, McBride showed only glimpses of his talent during a three- year stint at St Johnstone.
And things only got worse for the 24-year-old when he tried his luck in Denmark with FC Aarhus - he became homesick and left after only a couple of months.
Now McBride is back in Glasgow with six months to prove his worth to Jags gaffer Gerry Collins.
And he is determined to start enjoying his football again at Firhill.
He said: "My career since leaving Celtic has been a real rollercoaster and things just haven't worked out.
"The experience I picked up at St Johnstone was great but I wasn't in Denmark long enough to make an impact and I didn't learn anything I wouldn't have learned watching Paul Lambert and Henrik Larsson training at Barrowfield."
