In the summer of 2009, Pressley was appointed Falkirk manager replacing Eddie May who resigned in February of the same year. At Falkirk, he won the Scottish Challenge Cup in the 2011-12 season. He left a few years later in March 2013 to join Coventry City where he remained in charge until 2015 where he took charge of Fleetwood Town before moving to Cyprus to manage Cyprian team Pafos in 2018.
As a player, Steven Pressley won the Scottish Premier Division in 1993 and 1994 with Rangers as he won the Scottish Cup in 1993 also.

Pressley was appointed Carlisle United manager in January 2019 after replacing Tommy Wright and Paul Murray who were joint caretakers at the time. Pressley led the club to an 11th placed finish in the EFL League Two, which was a very good result for the club. Next season, the fans will hope that Pressley can lead the club to a promotion push after being stuck in the EFL League Two for 6 seasons now with no movements. With his experience however, Pressley will definitely look to improve his reputation as a manager at Carlisle United.
