The Falkirk manager has reacted angrily to a newspaper article suggesting that he has not been credited for ensuring the club’s survival.

The story, published in a national newspaper, quotes the Bairns boss as saying “I’m not given credit for selling players for the club’s survival.”

It is widely reported that Falkirk have had to slash their spending as they adjust to a third consecutive season outwith the SPL.

But Pressley insisted today that he has never asked for thanks in raising funds through player transfers.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” he said.

“I’m not looking for any credit. This is a tough job and decisions have to be made – but selling a player is not something that I expect to get acclaim for.”

Regarding the article in which he was quoted, Pressley added: “I have always attempted to be helpful and courteous to the press but I’m furious at the way this has been written.”
