FORMER Hearts defender Robbie Neilson is training with Falkirk.

The defender is back in Scotland with an eye on sealing a return to the SPL - but has been ticking over at training.

The Falkirk Herald understands the Bairns may look towards making Neilson’s presence a full-time arrangement, especially with the lack of numbers at the back which saw Steven Pressley pitch winger David Weatherston in as a right-back at the weekend.

The boss confirmed Neilson has trained with the Bairns for the last few weeks, but wouldn’t be drawn on signing his former team-mate.

“Robbie is an experienced player and he has been training,” Pressley told The Falkirk Herald. “He is a good type to have around the young squad.”

Neilson is out of contract after leaving Dundee United.Falkirk have already brought in Sean Higgins as an experienced head among the squad, but missed out on another target, Mark Fotheringham, who opted for a move to Ross County last week.
