Profile:
After having a strong season up front for the Dons in season 1907-08 Tom moved on to ibrox for a year but returned to Aberdeen, resigning in May 1909. Local weekly "Bon-Accord" was so delighted by this recapture that the published a short verse about it:

Old friends are best, and good old Tom
To Bon-Accord's no stranger;
Right glad are we to "welcome home"
This dandy little Ranger!
