Young Alex MacDonald Returns

Alex MacDonald has completed his loan spell with Falkirk and has now returned to Turf Moor.

He played 13 times for the Bairns and became a fans favourite in his spell North of the Border. He scored one goal during his time there against St Mirren after coming on from the bench.

He has arrived back two weeks earlier than planned because he is suffering from an ongoing groin injury that would have kept him sidelined beyond his loan contract.

The 19 year old Scotland Under 19 international striker is likely to still find opportunities limited in the Clarets first team and when he fully recovers from his injury could be a candidate for another loan spell until the end of the season.

Hope he can break through into the first team eventually but can't see it this season

I heard that Falkirk were not renewing the loan deal but I did not realise this was down to an injury, hope he is up and running soon.

He did well and lost a bit of weight, I think it was a good loan and hopefully he could pick up another loan as he is one for the future.

I think loan spells do work well and give the youngsters a good start. i think the spell at Darlo helped Lafferty considerably! From the very small glimpses I have seen of Alex - I am not sure he has what it takes to make it as a first team player at the Turf.

Same here Dale,certainly in the Prem. I hope he proves me wrong.
turfmanphil
Yes, I hope i am proved wrong, and I have probably seen less than an hour of him play - but I just didnt see anything in that time ( which isnt really long enough) to make me think he can do it.
