Former Dundee keeper Rab Douglas has signed a player/coaching contract at Forfar Athletic.

The 41-year-old joins the Station Park outfit on a one-year deal, following his release by the Dark Blues this summer.

Towards the end of last season Douglas had a high-profile falling out with gaffer John Brown over the signing of Steve Simonsen.

With the former Celtic man carrying a knock, the manager looked to bring in goalkeeping back-up.

Angry, as he did not see the injury as serious, Douglas and Bomber were at loggerheads leaving the ex-Scotland international out in the first-team wilderness.

His last appearance for the club, which he served in two spells from 1997-2000 and 2008-2013, came in the 1-1 home stalemate with Inverness in March.

Now under the tutelage of Dick Campbell, Douglas is looking to resurrect his playing career as well as progressing on the coaching side.

The keeper has been joined at the Second Division side, who Dundee beat 1-0 in pre-season, by fellow former dark blue Bryan Deasley.

The winger also signed a year deal along with Neil McCabe and James Dale.
