Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has ridiculed speculation he is about to leave the club and insists he has a "fantastic" relationship with chairman Karl Oyston.
Rumours spread that Holloway was about to resign just days before the start of the Seasiders' maiden Barclays Premier League campaign, which gets under way at Wigan on Saturday.
But at a press conference where he was unveiling three of the club's four new signings - Blackpool's first of the summer - the 47-year-old made a mockery of the suggestion he was on his way out.
"Before anyone asks a question, I just want to make sure you can see me - you can see me here and I'm not a cardboard cut-out, because somehow or other, I'm not supposed to be here," Holloway said.
"It's just a crazy world that we have moved into. Apparently I'd walked out and resigned."
