After an injury-plagued campaign in the Championship with Dundee, the goalkeeper has seized the chance to get some valuable game time in the remaining fixtures of the season with City.

Gibson made an immediate impact with a rare clean sheet for City in a 3-0 win at Montrose last weekend, and followed that up with a 1-1 draw at home to bottom side Queens Park on Saturday.

Gibson hopes to impress during his third loan spell at Borough Briggs as he looks to resolve his future for next season.

He said: “I want to repay the club, the manager and the chairman for giving me the chance to play games for the last six weeks of the season.

“I am delighted to be back and I couldn’t really knock back the chance. I am honoured to come back here and play.

“My contract is up in May. The (Dundee) manager has not said anything. He needs to see me playing games because I have been injured the biggest part of this season.

“The arrangement was to go out on loan and play games, which is more benefit than playing reserve games.”

Wherever his future lies, Gibson says the time has come for him to really establish himself as a no.1.
