Former Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is set to join Falkirk on a deal until the end of the season.
The 31-year-old is now a free agent after his loan spell at Dundee – where he made 17 appearances and scored three goals – ended last week.
Falkirk moved quickly to sign the Scotland international, with manager Martin Rennie aiming to guide the club to the Championship.
Hopes of automatic promotion are dim, with the club 22 points behind leaders Cove Rangers, but only two points separate Bairns and Queen’s Park who sit last in the play-offs.
Postecoglou: Griffiths had an impact at Celtic
Griffiths – who signed a new one-year contract at Parkhead last summer – was released by Celtic after making 261 appearances in eight years at Celtic, scoring 123 goals.
However, after confirming his departure from the club, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said Sky Sports News“He had an outstanding football career at Celtic.
“All of us are kind of visiting clubs, but you want to leave a mark there when you do.
“Leigh certainly did. I think he can look back on his Celtic career with great pride and he’s moving on to the next chapter of his footballing career. We wish him all the best.”
