Andy Hessenthaler is still weighing up whether to accept the offer of a director of football role at Gillingham.

Hessenthaler, in his second spell in charge of the Kent club, stood down as manager at Priestfield last Tuesday after failing to secure at least a play-off place.

But chairman Paul Scally was keen to keep hold of his experience and offered a place on the board in a role assuming responsibility for all club football development, scouting and recruitment.

Hessenthaler told Gillingham's official website: "He (Scally) has offered me a post to consider becoming a director of the company overseeing all football matters which is interesting and I will give myself a few days to think about it.

"It's food for thought at the moment, I will take stock and see what I want to do in the future."

He added: "Is there a future here for me? We'll have to wait and see. I have no regrets, I had a right good go at it and if I do not stay for my new role then I can go with my head held high."
