The club board met last night to discuss a shortlist of four candidates plucked from the 50-plus applications.

The Falkirk Herald has been told the NO offers have been made at this stage and that directors will meet for the monthly board meeting this afternoon. However the pressing issue of the manager’s position will be high on the agenda.

Rumours swept town last night after The Falkirk herald revealed four names were on the club’s shortlist.

Ian McCall was a popular choice among fans on social media and suggestions of the former boss and captain Mark Kerr forming the new regime gathered apace.

That resulted in McCall sweeping to the top of bookies’ shortlists, however reports in the national press have distanced both the Ayr United manager and the previous bookies’ favourite Jim McIntyre from the role.

The Bairns have called a press conference today, however it is the routine weekly calling with Gordon Young preparing to look ahead to the weekend’s match at Ross County.
