Falkirk co-boss Lee Miller has been “delighted” to see Lewis Moore get the chance to impress at Hearts under Daniel Stendel – despite the winger not getting an opportunity at the Bairns.

Moore spent the first half of the season at the Falkirk Stadium, making only a handful of appearances, before returning to Tynecastle earlier this month and playing regularly for the Jambos.

Falkirk, Hearts

Lee Miller is delighted for Hearts winger Lewis Moore (Falkirk FC).

Miller could come up against Moore on Saturday night when the League One title challengers welcome the Premiership strugglers to Falkirk for the “glamour tie“, with almost 7000 fans expected to attend and over 5000 tickets already sold.

Despite his struggles at Falkirk, Miller is happy to see the youngster get his chance under the German – admitting it’s all down to “opinions.”

“It’s been great to see him (do so well) and it’s just unfortunate it didn’t work out here and he didn’t get an opportunity. I saw him in training and a couple of the reserve games that he played in.

“I always say to players – even young players when I took younger squads – as one door closes, another one opens. It’s as simple as that. It’s about opinions at the end of the day and getting your chance and taking that opportunity.

“He’s done that. Fair play to him. Fair play to him going in there and I’m delighted to see him playing. I’m really happy for him.”
