Falkirk have completed the signing of Celtic academy graduate Aidan Nesbitt after his spell at Scottish Championship club Greenock Morton.

The attacking midfielder is Falkirk’s fourth signing this week after Steven Hetherington, Brad McKay and Ryan Williamson. Nesbitt started his career at Celtic and won the club’s Academy Player of the Year award in 2016 before leaving in 2017 with a handful of first-team appearances.

He has since played with MK Dons, Dundee United and Morton, having been with the latter since 2019. Nesbitt signs a two-year deal with Falkirk, who are looking to secure their return to the Championship from League One under new manager Paul Sheerin.

Nesbitt featured 35 times for Morton last season, scoring five goals with two assists as they secured their Championship safety with a play-off victory over Airdrieonians. Falkirk will aim for the League One title in the 2021/22 term after a disappointing fifth place finish last season.
