Falkirk co-boss Lee Miller has refused to rule out a sensational move to bring Stephen Kingsley back to the Bairns after his Hull City departure.
The left-back has been without a club since leaving Hull in the summer. He has been training with his former side in recent times and featured in bounce matches against Hearts and Raith Rovers.
Kingsley started his career at Falkirk and made over 100 appearances before moving to Swansea City in 2014. He’s enjoyed a successful spell in the EFL but left Hull after a frustrating 2019/20 season in which he only made eight Championship appearances.
Whilst he knows there’s bound to be plenty of interest in the left-back, Miller isn’t ruling out the possibility of a Bairns return.
“Stephen Kingsley has been in training with us and has played a couple of friendlies,” said Miller. “We saw that he was without a club and asked him if he wanted to come in. If we could get Stephen Kingsley then it would be great from a Falkirk perspective.
“I know he will have other options because he is a top-quality player. We have seen that ability in training and during the bounce games we have played. But it’s one of those things; you just never know what might happen in football.
“Can we pull on the heartstrings? Maybe we can. Falkirk does that to players. I started my career here 20 years ago and Cracks [co-manager David McCracken] was club captain here, and it means a lot to us. I’m sure that’s the case for plenty of other former players.
“He has come from an outfit who were recently in the Premiership, so it might prove to be just beyond Falkirk, but you never know.”
