Former Scotland striker Lee Miller has admitted that he wants to take the reins as Falkirk boss permanently after being unveiled as the Bairns new interim boss alongside David McCracken.

Miller and McCracken have been given “at least two or three games” to get the Bairns heading in the right direction after slipping to fourth in League One following two defeats on the spin.

With Falkirk now inviting applications to replace Ray McKinnon, Miller hopes he can put his stamp on the team and land the job on a full-time basis.

“We’ve got at least two or three games to steady the ship,” Miller said as he was introduced to the press alongside McCracken.

“We’re looking to put our stamp on the team and get every opportunity to get the job permanently. We’re realistic though and we know Falkirk have to go through a certain process and we can only do the best that we can at this moment in time. ”


The interim bosses get underway tomorrow night when they take on Linlithgow Rose in the Scottish Cup and it should prove to be a relatively simple affair for the Bairns.

After the disappointment of recent league results though, getting their League One campaign title push back on track is paramount over the coming weeks with Falkirk still only sitting three points off top.

Miller definitely seems to be more than up for the challenge and has a fantastic chance to land the role permanently alongside his former skipper at the Falkirk Stadium.
