FALKIRK are set to unveil John Baird as their latest January signing after the striker was released by Queen of the South yesterday.

The former Dundee, Partick Thistle and Raith Rovers ace, 29, is the second Queens player to make the switch to Peter Houston’s side since the transfer window opened after ex-Bairns midfielder Mark Kerr returned to the club at the weekend, making a second-half appearance in the 1-0 home win over Alloa.

Houston, who brings his team to the Capital to face Hibs this weekend, has also signed defender Aaron Muirhead from Partick Thistle.

Taylor Morgan, a 6ft 5in former Southampton and QPR striker currently plying his trade at Osterunds FK in Sweden, is also set to sign on a six-month loan deal.
