Gus MacPherson signed Thomas Brighton this morning.
The big striker (27) started his professional career at Ibrox before moving on to Clyde, Millwall, St Mirren and latterly Stirling Albion.
Said the manager, "He`s a proven goal getter and has been training with us now for a good few weeks. He`s impressed me in training and works hard, so I`m happy to get him `on board`.
"He`ll be in the squad to face Ayr at Somerset Park on Saturday and it`s a game I want to win.
"It`s what we`ve all been working for those past few weeks and we`re now ready and set for action.
"Big Brian Reid will be every bit as keen as we are to win through to the next round so I`m expecting a tight encounter
PS--We hear that ex-Queens favourite Bob Harris has agreed terms with Blackpool after playing against Rangers in a `friendly` last night. So, all the best `wee man` and we`ll always remember that `wonder goal` in Copenhagen.
