Ayr United have signed Tam McManus on a short-term deal and the striker goes straight into the squad for Wednesday's visit of Partick Thistle.
The 30-year-old spent the second half of season 2009/10 at Somerset Park, scoring five goals.
McManus has been without a club since leaving Falkirk at the end of last season and was on trial with Thistle in the summer.
McManus scored seven goals for the Bairns last term.
That was his second spell at Falkirk, having also turned out for Dundee, Dunfermline and US outfit Colorado Rapids since leaving Hibernian in January 2005.
