Kenny Miller is considering throwing his name for the vacant Falkirk job, Not The Old Firm understands, as the veteran striker eyes up his next career move.
The former Rangers, Celtic and Scotland striker is currently at Partick Thistle as his playing career winds down and is mulling over whether to formally apply for the vacant Bairns hotseat.
Miller signed a one-year deal with the Jags when he joined in the summer following a brief stint with Dundee and would have to negotiate his way out of Firhill if he was to make the move to Falkirk.
The veteran does have experience in the dugout after an ill-fated stint as Livingston player/manager at the start of last season ended with him leaving the club after a matter of weeks in charge.
Miller turns 40 later this month and is nearing the end of a trophy-laden playing career and the chance to lead Falkirk back to the Championship could prove the ideal opportunity for him to kick-start his managerial career.
Former Bairns stars Lee Miller and David McCracken are currently in interim charge at the Falkirk Stadium and have made no secret of their desire to land the role long-term.
With the interim duo having won both their games in charge so far, they appear to be in the driving seat to be named permanent managers.
The Bairns have had a number of applications and will be keen to take their time and ensure they make the right appointment after Ray McKinnon and Paul Hartley’s recent reigns.
