Ray McKinnon has made space in the Falkirk dressing room after a manic 24-hour recruitment, by releasing another four players.

Ruben Sammut will return to Chelsea following his six-month spell at Falkirk, while Dennon Lewis and Mark Russell have been released.

Prince Buaben’s contract has ended and will not be renewed.

PLAYER PROFILE: Ruben Sammut

The writing was on the wall given Buaben’s extended farewell following Staurday’s 4-2 defeat to Dunfermline and Lewis tossing his away shirt into the fans at Inverness – he wouldn’t be wearing it again.

LEAGUE TABLE: SPFL Championship

The four join Marcus Haber and Mustapha Dumbuya through the exit door. Their departures were announced on December 31.
