Former Scotland internationalist Steven Pressley has returned to coaching after taking up a short-term role at English non-league outfit Kidderminster Harriers.

Pressley has agreed to lend manager Gary Whild a hand on the training ground while the former Hearts and Celtic defender awaits his next next move into the dugout following his sacking as manager of Coventry City in February.

The 41-year-old former Falkirk boss is still based in England and has recently been working for English top-flight club Southampton as a scout.

Pressley will offer Whild assistance but will not be involved on match days for the Vanarama National League basement outfit.

Harriers chairman Rod Brown said: “Football Development Director Colin Gordon has been able to call on Steven for a favour and we’re all excited about being able to work with him for a month.

“Steven’s time at the training ground for the next few weeks will not cost the club a penny, but we hope the advantages we can take from it will be a lot more lucrative as he and the staff put their minds together to try and help Kidderminster Harriers.

“It was important to do something after such a tough start to the season for the management and the team, and any difference this can make will be a big boost.”
