Falkirk interim manager Lee Miller has admitted that he could look to register himself if there was an injury crisis – but confessed that he hasn’t thought about it in depth yet.

Miller and David McCracken are in interim charge of the Bairns and Miller could return as a player in January when the transfer window opens after leaving Livingston earlier this month.

The veteran admits he wouldn’t be looking to play regularly but could pull the boots back on if it was necessary.

“It is something to think about, ” Miller said, ahead of the Bairns facing Stranraer this weekend.

“If there were injuries and I could register myself as a player, not to go out and play or be on the bench every game, but if there was a crisis where there’s only one striker fit, I could potentially put myself on the bench. It’s something worth looking at but I haven’t thought about it in depth. It’s an interesting one.”

Miller is no stranger to being a Falkirk player after making his professional debut with the Bairns before returning for a second spell before heading to Livi.

A lot would also depend on the interim bosses getting the job full-time or still being in situ in January once Miller can register himself.

With the players available to him though, there’s no pressing need for Miller to return to action – even if he clearly has the ability to be a success in League One.
