The 21-year-old, originally signed up by the Bairns this summer on a one-year deal, has agreed an option to remain at the Falkirk Stadium until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Morrison has scored five goals in seven games since joining the Bairns.

Falkirk co-manager David McCracken said: “We are extremely happy to get Callumn signed up for next season.

"He’s made a terrific impact since coming into the club and has really impressed us so far, so it’s great to get this deal over the line.”

Co-boss Lee Miller added: “Cal is a really exciting player that I’m sure the fans have loved watching so far.

"He’s scoring goals and creating chances for the rest of the team, and the fact he is still young and developing is a scary prospect.

"We’re very pleased to get everything signed off and look forward to seeing what he can do in the rest of his time at the club.”

Morrison, born in Alva in Clackmannanshire, previously played for Hearts, making 42 appearances for the Edinburgh side, and was also loaned out to Stirling Albion, Brechin City and East Fife.
