Tommy was re-signed for the First Division campaign of 1960-61 and started the season in good form but dropped out of the side and spent the latter months in the reserves before he went to Tranmere Rovers for around 1,000.

Tommy returned to Scottish football in 1962 to play for Dumbarton, Stenhousemuir and returning to Albion Rovers to finish his playing career.

He went on to manage Forfar Athletic, Arbroath and Montrose before becoming youth team coach at St Johnstone.
