Dundee United FC have brought fans' favourite Billy Dodds back to the club from Rangers FC with Scotland striker Steven Thompson heading in the opposite direction.
Dodds, 33, should feature for the Tannadice club on Thursday against Kilmarnock FC after leaving Rangers on a free transfer. Meanwhile, Thompson, 24, is expected to make his Ibrox debut against Dundee FC after agreeing a three-and-a-half year contract.
Thompson made his international debut in March against France and now has seven caps. United have received a nominal fee from Rangers for the remaining six months of his contract.
He said: "I'm here to try to make myself the No1 striker at Rangers. There is a lot of quality here and if you can't learn from players like that you'll never learn. But I am not looking to be just a squad player at Rangers."
Dodds - who left United in December 1999 to sign for Rangers in a €1.9m deal - has been restricted to just six appearances for the Scottish Premier League leaders this term and his desire for more regular football has prompted him to sign a two and-a-half year deal for the division's bottom-placed club.
Dodds, who retired from international football in September 2001 after winning 19 caps, said: "I had a few offers during my time at Rangers but coming back to United felt right for me because I knew Paul Hegarty from my time at Aberdeen [FC] and what you get from him is honesty and enthusiasm.
"I have been involved in relegation battles before so I know what the club is going through at the moment. But there is genuine ambition here and I think we can move away from the bottom of the table."
