The 30-year old full-back is on the verge of competing in the Scottish Cup final for Inverness against Falkirk this weekend but thought about a decade ago that perhaps he could have been playing off for major trophies with the Reds.
"I was in and around the first team and I had a few sniffs of a few games and I thought: "Here we go, this is me,"' he reflected," he told the Scottish Daily Mail.
"But I quickly came to realise I wasn't good enough for that level. I knew I wasn't and I had to go and grind out a career elsewhere and that's when I left. It was the best thing I could have done, the only thing I could have done. But for six months or so I was thinking: 'Yeah, I'll be playing in big finals and things'.
"I played in a couple of cup games, FA Cup, Carling Cup, a league game as well.
"And I was involved around the European stage as well, so it was great experience but I just came to realise I wasn't good enough.
"It's taken until I'm 30 for this to come round... days like today, people wanting to speak to you. It's not going to happen forever."
