Stadium Fir Park
Time at Club:
Mark McGhee has returned to Motherwell for a second spell in charge. McGhee, who was an assistant to Gordon Strachan at Scotland, has signed a contract at Fir Park up until May 2017 as he bids to transform the club's season following a poor start under former boss Ian Baraclough.
Motherwell have just the one League title to their name and that came many many years ago back in 1932. Much to the fans despair there has in fact been no silverware at Fir Park since the Scottish Cup win of 1991, something the club will be desperate to change. They came agonisingly close to ending this barren spell last season when they reached the Scottish Cup Final, only to be comprehensively beaten by Celtic.
Following their tremendous season in 2007/08 when they finished in 3rd spot behind the Old Firm giants of Glasgow, the club have finished in the top seven three times. Although they have lost a place each year the club have played some entertaining football and in 2010 were involved in highest scoring match in SPL history, when they came back from four goals down to draw 6-6 with Hibernian.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Motherwell collect wins versus Partick Thistle, Ross County and Hamilton Academical while suffering adverse results at Hearts, Dundee, Inverness CT, Celtic and Hearts. Draws against Partick Thistle and Ross County has seen them show mid-table form at best.
