Pressley confirms retirement from Falkirk

Falkirk defender Steven Pressley has confirmed he is hanging up his boots after 19 years as a professional footballer. The 35-year-old former Rangers, Celtic and Hearts star said: "To be honest, it was a relatively easy decision for myself and that's why I knew it was the correct time.

"I made the decision several months ago."

Pressley now plans to move into full-time coaching - he is already an assistant to Scotland manager George Burley.

"I would consider all opportunities," he said.

"At this moment in time, I'm studying my UEFA pro-licence."
