Goalkeeper Danny Rogers admits he hopes to be in a position to challenge for the Aberdeen jersey when his season-long loan spell at Falkirk comes to an end.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 shot-stopper has sealed a third temporary move away from Pittodrie having also turned out for Airdrie and Dumbarton.

Rogers impressed in 36 appearances for the Sons last season and was named their Player and Young Player of the Year.

Falkirk manager Peter Houston has recruited Rogers after losing Jamie MacDonald to Kilmarnock and the 21-year-old believes another season in the Championship will stand him in good stead to make an impact at the Dons.

Rogers said: “It is up to me to go to Falkirk and do well and then to come back next season to Aberdeen and challenge for that number one jersey.

“I feel, at this stage of my career, it is important to try and play on a regular basis and going to Falkirk will hopefully give me that opportunity.

“I feel my career is going in the right direction and I just need to keep working hard.

“Falkirk are a big club who have big expectations and had a good season last year. They will be looking to kick on this year.”
