Leigh Griffiths: 121-goal ex-Hibs and Celtic striker decides next move
The Premiership leaders invoked a clause in his contract which allowed them to terminate the one-year contract extension signed in the summer early.
With them doing so before the close of the January transfer market it means Griffiths can sign for a team outside the window.
The Bairns are struggling in League One and manager Martin Rennie will see the 31-year-old as the man to fire the clubs into the play-offs and back into the Championship.
Griffiths spent the first half of the season on loan at Dundee but underwhelmed.
He has scored 121 goals in 248 Scottish top-flight appearances.
