JASON DAIR has resigned as manager of Oakley United after the club missed out on promotion to the Super League.

The 39-year-old former Pars player left his post after two years in the Blairwood Park hotseat because he felt the committee did not share his vision for the future.

Despite missing out on third place and a promotion play-off place in the Premier League, Oakley had enjoyed an encouraging season - winning 16 of their 30 matches - and Dair was confident that his squad could challenge for the title next term.

But after confirming that brother and assistant manager Lee had also exited the club, Dair, who will play for Scotland in the seniors World Cup in Thailand next month, told Press Sport, "Our season finished a week past Saturday and we had a decent one.

"We finished higher than probably what everyone expected at the start of the season and I had a few meetings with the committee but in that I found that my ambitions were different from theirs.

"When I took over we had a lot of debt which has been cleared and we've still put a decent team on the park but I wanted to keep improving the club.

"The board told me that the club's survival is the most important thing and that is fair enough.

"But I am ambitious and we decided to part ways, although it was amicable."
