Watch as former Hearts striker nets 'goal of the season' contender
Carrick scores stunner as Airdrie sink Stranraer
Injuries may have derailed Dale Carrick's career at Hearts, but the former Tynecastle striker is still going in the SPFL with League One Airdrieonians and he had a special part to play in their latest win.
Managed by ex-Hibs captain Ian Murray, the Diamonds have won five games on the bounce and now occupy top spot in the third tier.
Saturday's trip to Stranraer saw them come away with a 2-0 victory, a result which Carrick wrapped up in stunning style.
Running on to a cross from the left wing, the 25-year-old raced to the front post, where he flicked a first-time, back-heeled finish that connected with the underside of the crossbar and bounced over the line.
The SPFL official Twitter account called it a "goal of the season contender".
It was the seventh strike of the campaign for the attacker who normally occupies a spot on the wing for Murray's men.
Carrick came through the academy at Hearts and played for three seasons before being allowed to leave at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
He is most fondly remembered for scoring the opening goal in the 'relegation derby', where Hearts won 2-0 at Tynecastle to stave off relegation at the hands of arch-rivals Hibs.
