Steven Pressley has admitted he is a candidate to take over at former club Dundee United.

Peter Houston, an ex-Falkirk player, will leave Tannadice at the end of the season, if not sooner, and the Tayside club have already begun their search for a manager.

Reports this weekend centred on Pressley making a return to the club where he spent three years and played more than 120 games.

“I am aware of their interest, but the one thing that’a clear is I haven;’t been ofered any Dundee United job,” he told the written press after yesterday’s 4-3 win over Airdrie.

“I’m aware of their interest but Im fully focussed on the job I have here. I have said before I am incredibley happy here at this football club, I enjoy my football and you’ll find me preparing for the Forfar game (next week) tonight.

“They are very keen to speak to me on the position, but I’ve been concentrating on a big week for us and I’ll do that again until something changes.”

It is almost ten years to the week when Ian McCall, then Bairns manager at Brockville, made the switch to Tannadice.

As well as Pressley, other names believed to be in the frame for the Tannadice post are Jackie McNamara, Billy Dodds and Derek McInnes.
