Falkirk have confirmed the appointment of former Scotland striker Kenny Miller as assistant head coach to Martin Rennie.

Miller played under Rennie at Vancouver Whitecaps and was most recently coaching in Australia before returning to Scotland earlier this year.

Falkirk confirmed the news in a statement on their club website this afternoon, saying: “Falkirk Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Kenny Miller as Assistant Head Coach.

“Kenny joins until the end of the season and brings a wealth of football experience to the Club.

“As a player Kenny had an outstanding career, scoring over 200 goals in almost 700 appearances for a total of twelve different clubs. He was also capped 69 times for Scotland, scoring 18 goals for the international team over a thirteen-year period.

“In 2020 Kenny took a coaching role with Australian club Newcastle Jets, followed by a spell as assistant coach at Western Sydney Wanderers. Kenny will now assist our new Head Coach, Martin Rennie, under whom he played at Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

“We’re sure all Bairns will join us in welcoming Kenny to Falkirk!”

Rennie took the reins at Falkirk after the sacking of Paul Sheerin and the Larbert-born coach will be hoping to help his boyhood heroes earn promotion back to the Championship at the third attempt.

The Bairns face East Fife this weekend and currently sit fifth in the table, twelve points off leaders Cove Rangers.
