Conor McGrandles rejoins Falkirk on loan until the end of season


Falkirk have signed midfielder Conor McGrandles from Norwich City on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old, who signed for Norwich from Falkirk in the summer of 2014, has made just one senior appearance for the Canaries and has been loaned back to Falkirk to gain first team experience.

Speaking to the official Falkirk website, manager Peter Houston said: “I’m very pleased to be able to bring Conor back to the club.

“He’s an extremely talented player who hasn’t quite had his break yet at Norwich and we feel that we can offer him the platform to get back to playing regular first team football.

“He’s a player that we of course know all about and I feel he can add to our squad. I’m sure it is a signing that will excite the fans.”

McGrandle, who is contracted to Norwich until the summer of 2017, added: “It feels really good, I had some really good times here so hopefully I can come back and have some more good times and help the club to do well for the rest of the season.

“Obviously a lot of them are still round about my age so we were good friends when I was here and obviously when I left I still kept in touch with them, so it’s good to be back and seeing them.

“It’s been a really good experience for me so far (at Norwich, I’ve learned a lot since I went there, but I just feel at this moment I had to come and play games, so Falkirk have hopefully given me that opportunity.”

Falkirk are currently second in the Scottish championship, three points behind league leaders Rangers.
