Falkirk are running the rule over former fans’ favourite Lee Miller as Peter Houston continues to search for a striker.

The 32-year-old, who was released by Kilmarnock during the close season, impressed as a trialist for the Bairns’ development squad on Tuesday night, scoring with a towering header against Hibs.

Houston has make no secret of his desire to bolster his attacking options following the departures of Rory Loy, Taylor Morgan and Swansea City’s persistent interest in Botti Biabi.

He has already added Bob McHugh to his ranks but is keen to bring in at least one other forward before the closure of the transfer window.

Miller could add a physicality in attack which the Bairns are sorely lacking in the diminutive figures of McHugh, John Baird, Scott Shepherd and Kevin O’Hara.

The former Scotland international scored scored 27 goals in 61 games for Falkirk between 2000 and 2003 before going joining Bristol City.

Spells at Hearts, Dundee United, Aberdeen, Middlesbrough, Notts County, Scunthorpe and Carlisle followed prior to his ill-fated stint at Rugby Park last term.
