Former Rangers star Kenny Miller has insisted his focus is on getting results for Falkirk in their final two league games of the season – but admits he’d love the chance to get the chance to manage the Bairns on a permanent basis.
Miller took over from Martin Rennie on an interim basis having been appointed as his number two earlier this year and Miller admits whoever is in charge next season has to get the Bairns out of League One.
Falkirk sit fifth in League One, out of contention for a playoff place, and the ex-Rangers star is only looking at the upcoming games as the Bairns board decide who is next in the hotseat.
“The overriding feeling of the season is going to be one of disappointment. We’ve underachieved as a group,” Miller said [Falkirk Herald]
“Winning these three games is really important to me and the players to salvage some pride.
“The supporters will still come in big numbers so we owe it to them to play good football and put a performance on.
“These next two games will go a long way to coming back in June to a happy training environment.
“The focus from me is only on these two matches, and before Saturday it was on the three matches.
“It’s important that standards are kept high and Falkirk is a club that needs to be back up there.
“It’s been struggling away for too long and whoever is here next season needs to fix that.
“I’d love to be here, of course I would. What will happen in the coming weeks will happen.”
Miller is sure to be among the front-runners for the full-time gig at Falkirk but he’ll face a huge task to turn the Bairns around.
The former Rangers striker could use his contacts at Ibrox to secure players on loan if he does take charge at the Falkirk Stadium and it would be a good platform for some of the Rangers youngsters.
However, he’s still got to get something from the final two games of the season and show the Bairns bard that he has what they are looking for.
