The 22-year-old is on loan at Falkirk and has played 34 times in the Scottish Championship this season, with the Bairns second in the table.

Rogers has been battling with Manchester City goalkeeper Ian Lawlor for a starting place in the Irish U21 side but will be hoping to make a breakthrough to the senior team when he returns to Aberdeen next season.

The Cherry Orchard graduate was born in New York to Irish parents and has had other loan spells with Airdrieonians and Dumbarton.
