  • Transfer News: Rory Loy Leave Dundee for Falkirk

    The 29 year old Striker, returned to the Dark Blues of Falkirk after being released by mutual agreement from Dundee today.

    Rory Loy joined The Dark Blues on a three year contract from Falkirk in the summer of 2015 but fell out of favour with Paul Hartley at the start of last season. Loy spent the latter half of last season out on loan to St Mirren and helped steer them from regulation.

    Rory played for the Dark Blue of the Dee 50 times and scored 13 times.

    Loy started his career at Rangers, then loan spells at Dunfermline and St Mirren before ending up signing for Carlisle United in 2011. In 2013, Loy switched to Falkirk, his first game as a trialist against Forfar where he netted twice and went on to score his first hat trick (for Falkirk) in a 5 - 0 game against Cowdenbeath in 2014.

    He stayed with the Bairns for a further two season where he played 60 games and scored 29 times.

    Loy signed a pre-contract agreement with Dundee on 23rd February, and scored twice on his debut for the Dark Blues in a 4 - 0 away win against Kilmarnock.

    "When I heard Falkirk were interested in bringing me back, there really was only one option. I can't wait to get started," Loy told the club website. 

    "I am thrilled to be able to bring a player of Rory's quality back to the club" Peter Houston said.

    "I was disappointed to lose Rory two years ago so when it became apparent that he may well be available I was determined not to lose out and to bring him back."

    Loy joins Falkirk on a two year deal.

      Strong team out tonight. I think the players involved gives an indication that Hartley is going to stick with a winning team for Killie.
      Dundee - Gourlay, Coupe, Quigley, Smyth, Waddell, Etxabeguren, Curran, Low, El Bakhtaoui, Teijsse, I. Smith
      Subs - Ferrie, M. Smith, Berry, Thomson
      Half-time 0-0.

      As a member of HM armed forces I am able to gain access to a website called tickets for troops. On this website your are able to claim free tickets to see your team.
      Falkirk seem to be the only club in Scotland who regularly give away tickets on tickets for troops. I was one of the lucky guys/gals who attended the Blackwatch memorial game free of charge. It was a very touching experience to be given tickets for me and my dad to watch the famous Dundee FC play. I was greatly thankful for it!
      I do believe this is an amazing service that more clubs in Scotland should do on a regular basics.
      How do you guys feel about this? Is it something you would like to see Dundee and other big clubs in Scotland do?

      The 28-year-old striker started the season strongly, netting twice in the Premiership opener at Ross County.

      However, he has fallen out of favour since and has barely featured recently for the Dark Blues.

      Loy last played for the first team in the game against Kilmarnock at the start of this month, coming off the bench in the 82nd minute.

      The former Rangers and Falkirk front man was an unused sub as Dundee were defeated at Celtic Park last Saturday and he could be set to leave Dens in the January window.

      Dark Blues boss Paul Hartley admitted last week he was looking to bring in a new striker in but stressed that others would have to leave before that could happen.

      He said: “I think there will be scope to maybe get one or two players in.

      “We have to balance that though with players going out.

      “We definitely need another forward and maybe even a wide player.”

      Loy, who signed a three-year deal at Dens in the summer of 2015, netted for the club’s Under-20s yesterday against Hibs.

      Well it is now one week after the end of the SPFL season and we enter the close season of who's in and out with clubs.
      I thought we could use this space to highlight the transfer news over the next few months of all the teams in Scotland, whether they be from the mighty Dee or not.
