Ryan Flynn feels he had little choice but to quit Liverpool and return to Falkirk for the sake of his career.
The teenager was snapped up by The Reds from Falkirk for £50,000 in 2005 but failed to make an impact on Merseyside.
Flynn enjoyed his time with the Premier League giants, but found himself stifled by the wealth of young talent battling for a chance.
He re-joined Falkirk on loan this summer but recently secured a permanent move to the club after agreeing a three-year contract.
"I had four great years at Liverpool but it is very difficult to break through there," revealed Flynn.
"I realised that the best move for my career was to come back to Falkirk.
"First-team football is my priority so I want to continue that and improve further under the regime here at Falkirk."
