Since leaving Tannadice, Craig Brewster has been linked with several positions, including the Dunfermline job and a difficult managerial position in Greece.
However, the latest rumours have put 39-year-old Brewster inline for a sensational playing comeback for Saint Mirren.
At Tannadice, Craig Brewster was hoping he could lead United to victory on and off the park, but disaster struck in his first game incharge after he broke his foot when he landed awkwardly during the closing stages of a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen in January.
It was a bad omen for Brewster and after that his time at United went from bad to worse as injuries, suspensions and money forced some of his players out of the 1st team squad.
Now, even after his success at Inverness Caley Thistle, Brewster is unemployed and insearch of new employment.
He was recently offered the chance to return to Greece to manage his former side Ionikos, but things didn`t work out for Brewster after the Chairman tried to force him into making a quick decision about the position.
'I agreed terms with Ionikos and was due to go out with my dad on Saturday morning but the deal is now off,' Brewster told the Sunday Express earlier this month.
'I said I wanted to go out and have a look at things myself but the president wanted things finalised so he could announce it to the press.
Brewster continued, 'He said he couldn't give me any more time because he had spent the last few days putting other interested managers and agents off, so I said fine, I can't give you a decision now.'
Since Eddie Thompson replaced him with Craig Levein, Brewster has been linked with several available positions, including the job at Dunfermline which went to Stephen Kenny and the opening at Hibernian which was filled by John Collins.
Now, Saint Mirren are considering the seasoned veteran as the player to boost their attacking options, though its unlikely that anything would happen ahead of the Paisley sides trip to Tannadice this weekend.
