Falkirk star Louis Longridge has said he is delighted that the Bairns have opted to give Lee Miller and David McCracken managerial duties full-time.

The pair were brought in on an interim basis by the club and the Bairns recently confirmed their permanent stay. They’ll be under contract at the Falkirk Stadium until the end of the season.

Their first game in permanent control of the club was a 1-1 draw with League One table toppers Raith Rovers. It was a game marred with controversy as three red cards were shown during the fiery encounter.

Speaking to NTOF after the game, Longridge says that Miller and McCracken have been a ‘breath of fresh air’ around the club.

“It’s good, they’ve been brilliant and have provided a breath of fresh air,” Longridge explained. “For me I really enjoy working with them.

“I’ve played with Lee before and I know David very well so I’m delighted that they got given the job. It’s been good and I’m sure that a lot of the other boys will agree with me.

“It’s important that we didn’t lose and we got another point. They’ll work hard and we’ll work hard for them. Hopefully we’ll get that victory next week.

“Over the piece a draw was probably fair. The only thing the red cards impacted was our pressing and it’s always difficult going a man down. It’s disappointing not to get three points at home but I think we take what we’re given today.”
