He’s already played for seven clubs, scored the fastest hat-trick in Iranian football history and been involved in one of Scottish football’s most memorable punch-ups.
Lee Erwin has arrived in Dingwall having already packed a lot into his short career so far.
The 24-year-old striker completed his return to Scotland by signing a two-year deal with the Staggies, after ending a year-long stint with Persian Gulf Pro League side Tractor.
Erwin will be keen to get back on the straight and narrow after his unexpected transfer to the Middle East.
Former Wales and Real Madrid manager John Toshack lured him to Tractor, along with ex-Celtic striker Anthony Stokes and former Rangers midfielder Harry Forrester.
Toshack left just a few short months later though and Erwin, as well as Stokes and Forrester, failed to settle in Iran.
That’s despite the fact he made history on his final appearance as a substitute for Tractor last November when he scored a hat-trick in just seven minutes during a 4-1 win over Zob Ahan.

For most Scottish football fans, Erwin’s name will be synonymous with an infamous punch-up involving several Motherwell and Rangers players at the end of their heated relegation play-off in 2015.
Bilel Mohsni was already known as a hot-head when the Tunisian lashed out at Erwin, first with his legs before landing a left hook on him.
The then-Motherwell forward did have the last laugh though, his side triumphed 6-1 on aggregate and he won a move to Leeds while Mohsni never played for Rangers again.
Erwin’s time at Elland Road did not work out however, and he only made 11 appearances in two seasons.
He also found himself farmed out on loan to Bury and Oldham, where he played alongside County striker Billy Mckay.
A return to Scotland with Kilmarnock was next on the cards and Erwin seemed to have settled in nicely when the surprise move to Tractor came about.
As we know now, it was not a happy stay for Erwin.
Earlier this month he likened his spell there to being behind bars.
He said: “Playing in Iran was torture. I’ve never been in prison but I’d imagine that’s how it feels. I spent most of every day sitting in my hotel room.
“I was sold an entirely different life from the reality of what it was actually like once I arrived. I went there, tried it but it just didn’t work out.”
After that report card, we’re sure Bellshill-born Lee will be looking forward to a more peaceful existence in the Highlands.
