Former Dundee and Hibernian striker Tam McManus has signed for Falkirk until the end of the season.
Tam McManus negotiated his release from Dundee
The 25-year-old had impressed in training and could make his debut against Rangers on Saturday.
McManus had negotiated his release from Dundee before the transfer deadline after refusing to take a wage cut.
And he was invited by his former Hibs team-mate, John Hughes, to train with the Scottish Premier League outfit for a week.
Hughes had already signed strikers Graham Bennett, Anthony Stokes and John Stewart before the transfer deadline.
But he told BBC Sport that he hoped that McManus could prove he retains the talent he spotted while they were together at Easter Road.
McManus made 128 appearances for Hibs after coming through their youth ranks.
But he fell out of favour and had loan spells with East Fife, Airdrie and Boston United before joining Dundee in January 2005.
He made 45 appearances for the Dens Park club, now in Division One, scoring 10 goals.
