Former Aberdeen assistant manager Tony Docherty has joined the coaching staff at Scottish League 1 club Forfar Athletic for the rest of the season.
He has agreed to assist Forfar player-manager Gary Irvine, who stepped in after Stuart Malcolm and his management team resigned last week.
Forfar are five points adrift at the bottom of the table.
Docherty's eight-year spell as number two to Derek McInnes at Pittodrie ended when the pair left the club last month.
The 50-year-old could make a swift return to the Pittodrie dugout should Forfar cause a Scottish Cup shock at home to Premiership side Dundee United this weekend.
Winners of that tie will face either Aberdeen or Livingston in the quarter-finals.
