More ins and outs at Falkirk? Paul Hartley is not ruling out more transfer business this month

PAUL HARTLEY admits there could be even more comings and goings at Falkirk this month as he puts his own stamp on the club.

The former Dundee manager has recruited a massive seven players and let eight leave to balance the books in a bid to revive the Bairns.

Striker Lee Miller and midfielder James Craigen joined the exodus this week and there have been suggestions that frozen-out veteran Mark Kerr or marksman Rory Loy could follow.

It is understood that no discussions have yet taken place over the pair’s future at the club, but Hartley has confessed he could still be tempted back into the transfer market.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Scottish Cup clash with Livingston, he said: “There’s always speculation when players aren’t playing, or even when they are playing, and we understand that.

“We’ll see where we are over the next 10 days, in terms of players coming in and players going out.

“It’s part and parcel of a football club that players will come in and players will go out.

“We’ve got to try to look at the squad as a whole and we can’t have a massive squad because of financial constraints, so sometimes players have to go the other way if we want to bring players in.

“That’s just the way it goes. We’ve had to freshen it up and bring in the quality of player that’s required, and put our own stamp on the team and the club.

“We’ve managed to do some good business. I’m pleased with the players we’ve brought in so far, the squad’s definitely taking shape now.

“We’ll keep looking and see where we are over the next 10 to 12 days, and see if we can do something.”
