Beattie joins Seasiders
Blackpool have completed the loan signing of experienced striker James Beattie.
Rangers confirmed that the 32-year-old would join the Seasiders until the end of the season.
Ian Holloway's men have also signed midfielder Andy Reid from Barclays Premier League rivals Sunderland for an undisclosed fee.
Beattie was hampered by a hip injury early in his Ibrox career before struggling to force his way into the team. And his chances of doing so were further diminished by the loan signing of Northern Ireland striker David Healy on Sunday.
Reid has made 70 appearances for the Black Cats since his £4million switch from Charlton in January 2008.
However, he became surplus to requirements under Steve Bruce and followed Paulo da Silva and Healy out of the Stadium of Light.
"I think he will be perfect for us and it won't take me long to get him going," manager Ian Holloway said.
"He's gone for £12million (in cumulative transfer fees) in the past so that's not a bad take for us I believe."
The Seasiders have also agreed a loan deal until the end of the season for 24-year-old Southampton winger Jason Puncheon, although it remains subject to Premier League and Football League clearance.
