Mark McGhee returns to Motherwell for a second spell

Motherwell have found their man in former boss Mark McGhee who returns to Fir Park for a second spell in charge of the club. McGhee, who was working as an assistant coach to Gordon Strachan at Scotland, replaces Ian Baraclough in the dugout, signing a deal until May 2017.

Motherwell reportedly received over 75 applications for the vacancy, but in the end approached McGhee, who previously managed Well between 2007 and 2009. The 58-year-old memorably led the club to a 3rd place finish, which saw his troops return to Europe after a 13-year absence.

The experienced gaffer McGhee certainly has his work cut out, with Motherwell 9th in the table with just 10 points from 10 games. First matches in charge don't come much tougher than Celtic who make the trip to Fir Park on Saturday lunchtime, in the televised game.

Motherwell, who have lost six of their 10 SPL games this term, will be gunning to storm out of the blocks under their new boss, who is priced at 9/1 (Bet Victor) to oversee a stunning debut victory.
