Falkirk co-manager has admitted that he’s very much aware of the prospect of PJ Morrison being recalled by Motherwell after the Fir Park side were stunned by Stephen Robinson’s resignation.

The Northern Irishman quit the Steelmen after a run of poor form saw them languishing near the bottom of the Premiership table – and Miller is working on a back-up plan with co-manager David McCracken just incase the keeper is called back by his parent club.

While he has spent most of his time deputising for Robbie Mutch, Morrison was handed a run of games after suspension ruled Mutch out for a number of games before a positive Covid-19 test sidelined him for another fortnight.

With Trevor Carson still out of action and Jordan Archer only on a short-term deal at Motherwell, there could be a need for a goalkeeper at Fir Park soon and Morrison’s loan deal being ended early would be one option for the Premiership side.

Morrison has impressed for the Bairns this season, keeping a string of clean sheets to help them to the top of League One and Miller confessed that the prospect of losing Morrison is something that keeps him on his toes.

“It’s always something that’s in the back of our head,” Miller said, speaking to Not The Old Firm.

“He might end up going back, we just don’t know that yet.

“We’re constantly looking to see what else is out there if he did go back so that we’ve got a back-up plan in place, but we’ll cross that bridge if we come to it.”
