David McCracken has spoken on his Falkirk future as he continues his interim stint in charge of the club.

Alongside Lee Miller, McCracken has guided the Bairns to two wins and a draw in his opening three games. It leaves Falkirk third heading into a mouthwatering game against Raith Rovers.

McCracken will take the reigns again this weekend for that clash. Should he come out on top against John McGlynn’s side, Falkirk will be one point off the current League One leaders.

A win would certainly help McCracken and Miller’s ambition of becoming the full-time management team at the club. It’s our understanding that the board are in no rush to appoint Ray McKinnon’s successor.


When asked about his future, McCracken again didn’t hide away from the fact he’d love to steer the club into the future and confirmed he’ll likely be there after Christmas

“We’re just doing what we can do and making sure the boys are prepared enough,” said McCracken. “We’ve had two wins and a draw and we’re just taking it game by game and at this point we can’t look too far.

“We knew that it was on an interim basis and it’s up to us to show what we can do. Ultimately that comes with results on a Saturday.

“That’s the pressure that comes with being in a managerial position. I’ve had a bit with Peterhead and this is on a slightly different basis as you’re in with the players every day.

“I’d say this is better as you see the players every day because if it doesn’t go right one day you can reconstruct it the next, it’s been good. We have a great squad in there. It’s up to me and Lee to get the best out of them on a Saturday.

“We want to take the club back to where it should be but that takes a lot of hard work before we get there. I would expect to still be here in January but that’s got to show up in the results.

“I think we’ve done pretty well since we’ve came in.”
