Stenhousemuir stand-in boss Brown Ferguson has refused to rule himself out of the running for the vacant manager’s job at Ochilview.

The 32-year-old was in charge along with fellow senior pro David Rowson for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Ayr United, after Martyn Corrigan and his assistant Kevin McGoldrick exited the club on January 21 following four successive league defeats.

Heraldsport understands that the Warriors have already received a “high number” of applications for the position, and the board of directors are currently examining them with a view to arranging interviews next week.

Ferguson and Rowson will once again be in charge when Stenhousemuir host Stranraer this weekend.

Ferguson told Heraldsport: “David and I picked the team on Saturday, but at the moment I am not going to disclose whether I’d be interested in the manager’s job or not.

“We have been asked to take responsibility for the time being and we’ve not been given any timescale.

“I think the board want to consider the position and make sure it isn’t a rush decision and they get the right person.

“Whether that comes along tomorrow, next week or whenever, I don’t know. That’s for them to comment and we will see what they decide in the future.”

The stand-in boss did declare himself satisfied with the Warriors performance against Ayr.

“We created a lot of chances and deserved a point. With Martyn going it has been a difficult week for everybody and the players responded.”
