Rovers keep hold of striker

Thistle front man remains a Rover

Albion Rovers have been successful in their attempt to keep Partick Thistle striker Christie Elliot on loan for an extended period until January 19.

The former Whitley Bay 21 year old joined the Coatbridge side in November and has starred despite not finding the net as Todd Lumsden’s side have lost to Stranraer, Stenhousemuir and Forfar.

Lumsden said, “I am delighted that we have kept Christie for longer as has added a lot of threat to our attack. I am sure that other the next month he will get goals for us and then be ready to stake a claim to help Thistle towards promotion.”
