Laws rejects talk of summer exit

Burnley boss Brian Laws is confident that he will still be in charge at Turf Moor when the Clarets return to the Championship next season.

Laws took the helm following the mid-season departure of Owen Coyle, but was unable to guide Burnley to safety, although they did finish the campaign with a morale-boosting 4-2 win over Spurs.

"There is only the media who seems to have a cloudy outlook on my position, mine is very clear," Laws told the club's official website.

"We have been working diligently over the past month or so to set up for pre-season and looked at targets and bring players in.

"Planning for the future is what we do and I am certainly part of that, so I have not questioned my position and I don't see why anyone else should.

"This was always going to be a tough job for any manager. However, we have a bright future ahead of us and I am certainly looking forward to being a part of that and building a side to bounce back.

"It was a great way to end the season and warm a lot of our supporters ready for next season.

"Certainly the club is better off financially for today and hopefully we can utilise the strength of the squad and add to it to help us regain our position."
