Robertson is moving to Iceland to further his football career

Stirling Albion's Scott Robertson has has been offered a full-time contract with Fram Reykjavik following a week-long trial in Iceland.

Manager Jocky Scott and Stirling's executive board have agreed to let the midfielder leave the club in the interests of furthering his career.

Fram Reykjavik currently play in the highest Icelandic league, the Urvalsdeild karla.

They dominated the tournament in the 1990s but finished fifth last season.

The 23-year-old Robertson joined Stirling from Queen of the South in 2009.

During his time in Dumfries, the Irvine-born midfielder had played the last five minutes of Queens' 3-2 defeat by Rangers in the 2008 Scottish Cup final.

However, he and Stirling suffered a blow at the end of last season, when they were relegated after finishing bottom of Division One.

Meanwhile, Scott is in the process of making a final decision about the futures of trialists who paid £200 a time to impress the Binos manager in the hope of winning a professional contract with the part-time outfit.

As part of the club's "So You Think You Are Good Enough?" initiative, closed-doors matches were being held on Monday and Tuesday evenings this week.

About 30 players took part in the initial trials last month and 12 were subsequently invited back to pre-season training.

A further 17 players were invited to take part in a closed-doors game after their applications arrived too late for the opening trials.
