Goalkeeper Michael McGovern has joined Scottish First Division side Falkirk.

The Northern Ireland international, 27, previously had spells at Celtic, Dundee United and Ross County, making 97 appearances for the Dingwall club.

He was in goal for County in their Scottish Cup final defeat to Dundee United in 2010 but his three-year stint there ended early in the summer.

McGovern had been training with St Johnstone and had been of interest to Aberdeen and clubs in England.

His arrival will be welcomed by Falkirk fans, who have witnessed several players leave in recent weeks.

Keeper Robert Olejnik moved to Torquay, midfielder Ryan Flynn headed for Sheffield United, Mark Stewart and Chris Mitchell signed for Bradford, Carl Finnigan joined St Johnstone and Marc Twaddle left for Rochdale.
