15 Jan Rogers to stay at Falkirk
Falkirk have confirmed they’ve extended the loan deal Aberdeen goalkeeper Danny Rogers until the end of the season.
There appeared doubts over Rogers’ future at Falkirk following Dons goalkeeper Danny Ward’s return to Liverpool.
However, after Derek McInnes’ side finalised a move for Rotherham shot-stopper Adam Collin, the Bairns were given the all-clear to keep Rogers.
It was welcomed news for Falkirk boss Peter Houston, who penned a new two-year deal at the club on Thursday.
“We are pleased that Danny has been allowed to stay with us until the end of the season,” he told the club’s official website.
“I always felt that Derek would prefer him to be playing first team games here, so it’s good to finally get the confirmation through.”
Rogers has nine shut-outs from 24 appearances for Falkirk this season. The Bairns face Hibs at the Falkirk Stadium on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the club confirmed that they have signed 21-year-old forward Nathan Austin for an undisclosed fee. Austin will return to East Fife for the rest of the season.
The striker has been in impressive form, netting 16 goals in 25 games and Houston was delighted with the acquisition.
“Nathan is a young, promising player who has an eye for goal.
“He’s a player we’re pleased to sign and is very much a large part of our plans for the future.
“It is important that Nathan goes back to East Fife until the end of the season to continue his development and hopefully continue his fantastic scoring run.”
