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.
