He spent the first two months of the season on loan at Pittodrie – brought in as cover after injuries to Sam Cosgrove and Curtis Main. Watkins scored twice in 12 games, finding the net against Ross County and St Mirren, before a hamstring problem ended his stay.
Watkins first made his mark in Scottish football with Caley Thistle, joining in 2013 after being let go by Hereford.
He became a cult hero in the Highland capital, scoring in the 2015 Scottish Cup final victory over Falkirk.
A successful two-year stint at Barnsley followed, where he lifted the EFL Trophy and won promotion to the Championship via the play-offs, before being snapped up by Norwich City.
The 30-year-old lasted just one season with the Canaries before being reunited with his old Barnsley boss Lee Johnson at City. Watkins finishes his time in Bristol with three goals in 29 games.
