Ex-Hearts skipper Pressley rues McGlynn sacking

Steven Pressley has lashed out at Heart of Midlothian for getting rid manager John McGlynn.

McGlynn's role as Hearts boss was mutually terminated on Thursday but former Jambos skipper Pressley, who is manager at Falkirk, felt that it was a poor decision by the Edinburgh club.

"It's once again a ludicrous situation," he said.

"John has been faced with a number of factors being Hearts manager. It has been a near impossible job.

"One is the financial predicament of the club. Two is the loss of key players. Three is a signing embargo.

"When you put all of these things together, his position has been a very difficult one.

"To remove him from the position when you take all that into consideration is ludicrous.

"I don't understand it. I don't know what people think managers can do. I genuinely mean that. His hands have been tied at that club.

"But does the outcome surprise me? No. You have to start looking deeper than the manager of the football club.

"The reaction at every club to any disappointment is to remove the manager.

"History will show you and statistics will show you that until you get a proper strategy and stability at a football club it will not change."
