Former Leeds United boss a shock candidate for Falkirk job

Former Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn is understood to be willing to become the new manager of Scottish Championship club Falkirk according to the Daily Record.

The 52-year-old has been out of work since being sacked by Rotherham United in February 2016 after winning just five of his 21 matches in charge at the New York Stadium.

It has been reported that Redfearn is interested in the managerial vacancy at Scottish Championship club Falkirk however it is not known whether the Yorkshireman has formally applied for the job.

The Bairns are searching for a new manager after the club sacked former boss Peter Houston last week. The 52-year-old had been in charge at the Falkirk Stadium for over three years but a winless start to the season ultimately cost him his job. Caretaker manager Alex Smith saw the club record their first victory of the season on Saturday when they defeated Greenock Morton 1-0 at Cappielow Park.

Potential managerial candidate Redfearn made his name at Leeds United where he worked in a number of different roles including under-18s coach, academy director, first team manager and caretaker manager on no less than three separate occasions.

During his time at Elland Road, Redfearn’s overall win rate as Leeds United first team manager was 38% and despite being given little time to impress in his last job with Rotherham United, the former midfielder is not finished with football management just yet.
