Press­ley rules out re­turn to Falkirk


STEVEN Press­ley will not be re­turn­ing to Falkirk as man­ager.

The Bairns are on the hunt for a new head coach af­ter sack­ing Ray McKin­non just hours af­ter Satur­day’s 1-1 draw with Dumbarton.

For­mer boss John Hughes has ad­mit­ted he is ea­ger to speak to the club’s hi­er­ar­chy about the va­cancy, whilst one-time man­ager Owen Coyle and ex-Falkirk striker Lee Miller are fron­trun­ners with the book­mak­ers.

How­ever, it is un­der­stood Press­ley, sacked last week by Carlisle United, is not in­ter­ested in a re­turn to the League One club.

The for­mer Hearts, Dundee United, Celtic and Rangers de­fender spent al­most four years in the dugout at Falkirk, first as as­sis­tant and then as Ed­die May’s suc­ces­sor be­fore leav­ing for Coven­try City.

But the 46-year-old, who is now based south of the bor­der, has in­di­cated he has no de­sire to re­turn to the club as they seek the right man to kick-start their fal­ter­ing pro­mo­tion bid.
