Falkirk could be without veteran midfielder Russell Latapy's services for up to nine months. The Trinidad and Tobago FA are keen for the 40-year-old to be released for their entire World Cup qualifying campaign next year.
"He will be the assistant coach and will also be part of coach Francisco Maturana's plans as a player."
The Bairns' managing director George Craig insists the development is news to him though, saying: "There have been no talks or communication from the Trinidad and Tobago FA or Jack Warner.
"As to what the club's response would be if they were to make such a request, I'd need to take guidance from the manager and the player, who is very much part of the community in Falkirk with his family.
"It would be a football decision in conjunction with Russell. There is an excellent relationship between him and the manager and we would be guided by Russell's personal wishes."
