ALEX HARRIS has signed a two-year deal with Peter Houston’s Falkirk following his release from Hibs.
The winger caused the Bairns Hampden heartache when he burst on the scene four years ago, helping his side come back from 3-0 down to win their Scottish Cup semi-final 4-3.
But he failed to hold down a place under successive Easter Road bosses and was farmed out on loan to Dundee and Queen of the South.

Harris finally quit the Edinburgh club when his contract expired at the end of last season.
And he admits the presence of ex-Hibs coach James McDonaugh at the Falkirk Stadium should help him settle in to his new surroundings.
He said: “I know James from his time at Hibs and a few of the boys having played with them before too.

“It’s good to get the move done and dusted and I am really looking forward to getting started.
“It’s great to meet the manager and everyone around the place has made me feel so welcome already. Falkirk have always been a tough team to play against, I know the stadium well and the surroundings.
“I’ve been keeping fit throughout the summer so now it is all about working hard and making a good start to pre-season.”
Boss Houston revealed Harris had impressed him on a number of occasions as an opposition player.
And at just 22 years old he is confident his best days are still ahead of him.
He said: “Alex is a player who has massive potential and I know will be keen to hit the ground running come pre-season.
“He already has a good relationship with James McDonaugh from their time together at Hibernian so he is a player that, as a coaching team, we have good awareness of.
“He made a big impact when he first broke into the Hibernian team and impressed me anytime we played against him while he was on loan at Queen of the South.”
