Falkirk star Callumn Morrison has undergone knee surgery the Bairns have confirmed and are hopeful the winger can return to action before the end of the year after going under the knife.

Morrison was injured during the recent clash with Queen’s Park and, after visiting a specialist, the former Hearts youngster was informed he’d need surgery to fix the problem.

The Alva-born star has been vital for the Bairns under new manager Paul Sheerin and his lengthy absence has led the League One side to sign Declan McDaid on loan from Dundee as cover.

While Morrison faces months on the sidelines recovering, the initial signs following his surgery are positive, with the Bairns hierarchy looking forward to getting him back into the side.

In a short statement on their website, the Bairns wished the winger a speedy recovery as they provided an update on his injury, saying: “The club is pleased to report that the initial report from the surgeon is positive. We hope Callumn can return to training in the near future to continue his recovery with the aim of being available for selection in December.

“Everyone at Falkirk FC wishes Callumn a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him back wearing the navy blue.”
