Diamonds boss Jimmy Boyle has bolstered his goalkeeping options with the loan signing of Rangers stopper Grant Adam.
The 20-year-old has signed on until the end of the season and will provide competition for current number one Connor Fairley.
Adam, who is the younger brother of Liverpool and Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam, has courted controversy recently having been charged with sectarian breach of the peace following an incident in Glasgow city centre. Adam denies the charges.
The goalkeeper has since been dropped from the Scotland under-21 squad, with coach Billy Stark insisting it was for footballing reasons.
Commenting on the move, Jimmy Boyle said he was delighted to welcome Adam to Airdrie.
He said: "The papers were signed and submitted today between Airdrie and Rangers allowing Grant Adam to join us on loan until the end of the season.
"I tried to get Grant at the start of the season but unfortunately for a variety of reasons, it fell through.
"With Paul McKane returning to Ireland we were short in the goalkeeping area and fortunately that has now been resolved.”
Adam will go straight into the squad for Saturday's game against Stirling.
